    been back today and noticed a letter to the people of Nottingham from one of the vets, it is to be opened in the year 2144, guess i will never know what is written, any idea Ade?
    "and when he gets to heaven,
    to saint peter he will tell:
    "Just another marine reporting, sir
    I've served my time in hell."
