    The years have passed so quickly but the memories still remain !!
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    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

    Just watches a segment yesterday on CNN.
    The Falklands War was of course talked about (I noticed the British journo called it the Malvinas/Falklands war)
    Further more, it seems they have found oil - things are about to change.
    Sheffield, Atlantic Conveyor, The Yomp, Exocet, Goose Green, Jones - all words which will be indelibly stamped in my mind.....and instantly produce in my mind the often seen pics from back then.
