    Trip_Wire RIP

  2. Another of the greatest generation passes away. RIP.
  3. From my research the depiction of Speirs in Band of Brothers was accurate - what a leader. Remember what he did on Foy?

    In one episode his character made a comment along the lines that you can't function as a proper soldier until you reconcile yourself to the inevitability of your own death. Subsequent experiences have confirmed the wisdom of this view.

    May he rest in peace.
  4. R.I.P and rest well.
  5. A Great soldier and another link with the past dies,
    very sad
  6. RIP you deserve to, time to watch Band of Brothers again I feel
  7. R.I.P.
  8. A fantastic soldier, and a great man.

    RIP Sir.

  9. Sleep well. RIP
  10. Indeed we owe them so much. RIP.

    Coincidentally Virgin have Ep 1 BOB on their teleport service. I took advantage and watched it this afternoon.

    I wonder if some light will now be shed on the 'allegations'??
  11. Stephen Ambrose relates in his book the Band of Brothers,

    Speirs was one hell of a combat officer!

  12. Another hero of the past retires to the bosom of his maker, RIP and sleep easy!
