Falklands Veteran

Christmas shopping in London in 1983 I stepped off the escalator from Waterloo underground to the main station and there I saw a beggar with an eye patch and one arm, holding a cap.

Around his neck hung a sign ..."Falklands war veteran - 3 children to support"

I thought "Fcuking 'ell - what is WRONG with this country"

I had done my shopping - gave him all the cash I had left on me - almost forty quid.

The guy looked up, flashed a toothless smile and said ....

"Sank you, Senór"
