    A short video of the Dornier's arrival and placing in the preservation tunnels. Anyone thinking of travelling to have a looksy may wish to bear in mind that the only way to view it is through a 3'x4' door at one end of each of the poly tunnels.

    RAF Cosford regretfully announced that several hundred Hermit crabs, prawns three lobsters and a Dover sole were found to have died during the recovery and transportation to the museum, but that casualties were unavoidable in such circumstances....

    Regrets, Ned.

    Collateral damage i'm afraid. At the going down of the sun, we will remember them...

    Talking of the sun, it's been rather warm around here today, I bet those poly tunnels are starting to hum like a fleet of Herring trawlers with all those dead crabs hidden inside...... Lovely.

    Incidentally, historians believe that the plane took off along with 8 other Dorniers from occupied St.Trond in Belgium to attack the RAF Fighter Base at Manston in Kent on August 26th - making today, the anniversary.

    Because sadly an interest in history and the teaching of same has pretty much deliberately been bred out of the masses over generations.
    This serves the 'powers that be' and is in their interest because history is just garbage on the dungheap to them. When the broad masses have no sense of the past, they can be shaped and controlled. But as this is supposed to be a non-political forum, we should not dwelve on that.
    Suffice it to say, that its up to the likes of this forum and others like it to keep history alive in order to cast a light on the horrors of war and what really happened. Thus we might actually learn something and not repeat certain aspects.
