    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Nice to see this old thread from 2010 back up. Tony was always entertaining to listen to.

    I will be at the XXI reunion in just over a weeks time.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The video in the Hartenstein of the interview with Tony was very moving , all the more so because he has now jumped onto the last DZ . His apology for using bad langauge never thinking that this piece of wallpaper would end up in a museum and his description of the first two Germans he sniped at Arnhem shows what it means to be a soldier and to do your duty !!

    Must have missed this thread when it was originally posted, I just had a read of the link Ade posted, he certainly was an outstanding man that all owe a lot to for fighting for us to have the lifes we live now.

    RIP Tony.

    Thanks

    Always makes me sad to see a vet leave this world. Our home town just lost one of the few last vets a few weeks back.

    That wallpaper is really striking

    RIP
