'Little Britain' grows in W. Village

Tuesday, March 20th 2007, 4:00 AM

A little bit of Britain is about to arrive in the Big Apple.

Stores and businesses in the West Village have banded together to get their neighborhood around Greenwich Ave. officially renamed "Little Britain" - putting it in the same category as other famous ethnic enclaves such as Chinatown, Little Italy and Spanish Harlem.

The area is already packed with British hangouts: Tea and Sympathy, Myers of Keswick, and A Salt and Battery, all popular with ex-pats wanting a taste of home.

Organizers - who hope to get the block between 12th and 13th Sts. publicly recognized as the heart of New York's British community - plan to launch a campaign tomorrow with a tea party.

Actor Mike Myers, a Canadian who played British mod spy Austin Powers, is among the celebrities throwing their weight behind the campaign, along with singer Joss Stone and comedian Billy Connolly. Virgin Atlantic airlines are also partners in the venture.

Tongue-in-cheek posters will also be put up in British designer stores Paul Smith, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen, asking "What's one more Queen in the Village?"

The organizers hope Mayor Bloomberg will formally endorse Little Britain's status.

You're all wrong!

BTW: Unlike some here, I don't have sex of any kind with boys, men, sheep or other small animals, fish, etc.

Just the Ladies, Guys! Since I'm married, just my wife of 38 Years of Happy Marriage!

But the Guy in the picture sure reminds me of what a person would look like based on his posts and other activities on this board, and it isn't 'LJONESY,' either.

So you married 35 year ago (2007 - 35 = 1972)

You claim to have been assigned to Camp Zama, Japan in 47, and let us assume that you were 18 when you posted to that duty station (generous assupmption BTW) which means
(1947 - 18 = 1929)

1929 was round about the year you should have been born if not earlier.

(2007 - 1929 = 78) your age if not older given the afore mentioned assumption.

Otheriwise you embellished the following.

Oh and I note that you were a MP or attached to an MP unit and never mentioned in that profile that you were a "Airborne Ranger" or a Korean War ERA Ranger as you do in this post.

E-mail address: xxxxxx@xxxxxx.xxx

Served in the 14th Airborne Ranger Infantry Company (Abn.) I was also Special Forces for 10 + years. I belong to RICA and WAR. This is a nice web site, however; I didn't think that the Korean war Ranger Companies (Ranger Units) was covered that well. We had patches too! We also were the first AIRBORNE Rangers! There were
What is really strange is that all Ranger companies in Korea were deactivated in 1951, and by your own accounts you just entered country in 1951 as a MP

Oh I see you were on super duper secret assignment from UNCLE and as such there is no record of you even being there or the unit you were with ;-)

Then I have this:
xxx , wanted me to be sure and point out he did not serve in Combat with the Airborne Ranger Companies.
He served with the A Co. 27th Infantry Regiment, 25th ID., in Korea 1951 to 1952.
Sadly you don't point that out here while you proclaim to be the heir apparent to the "Duke" himself.

Please explain if I have the afore mentioned wrong. Granted they are your own postings, and as such I give you the benefit of the doubt, being such a war hero, to clarify any misunderstanding I may have with timelines and the such....

Anyone interrested PM me for the sources.

TW you are a deluted individual and .... yes a cnut.

To Whom it may consern:

Firstly, My DOB is 01/06/1931.
(I'm 76 Years Old)
(I enlisted in the US Army at age 15 on 01/04/1947)
I retired from the USAR in 1984
I was married the second time on 14 June 1968
(So actually it will be 39 Years this June.)
(I was married the First time 14 Mar 1950 Divorced 1968)

I Joined the King County Sheriff's Department 06 Mar 1956

(BTW: One should keep in mind what assume really does.)

I see no need to provide anyone here with a detailed account of my service. There are some bad dates in the account that one wrote, here as well as a unit in Korea missing that I served in Korea with. (A Co. 27th Regiment (Wolfhounds) 25th ID. My time as a Combat Infantryman.( 10/51-01/52) (Some of it, in the hospital in Japan.) The date for the MP BN more like 04/'52 — 01/'53 keep in mind that this was some 56 years or more ago.

My profile here on ARRSE reads:

(Which BTW, is a lot more info then most people on this boardplace there.

He's not a perv just has delusions...he's upset over the fact that he got sea sick and couldn't join the Navy, where he and his gay lurver could have tickled each others rusty sherrif's badge and slurp off the glistening pre-spoodge from one another other's bellend.

Instead he likes making up and embellishing his war record on the internet.

Does your DD-214 morph with time? All your assignments, unless classified, are enumerated on your DD-124. No need to recollect where abouts just pick up that piece of paper issued to you at time of discharge and voila accurate dates. ;-)

As a well-known Obergurglist and Fotzenhobler,you should wind your neck in and stop messing with Living Legends whose carpet slippers and incontinence garments you are not fit to lick!

General Info for those who are interested.:

I have two 214s. One covers my time from 1947 — 1949. (Occupation of Japan.) The other Covers from 1949 until 1953. They have my awards & decorations, MOSs and last unit served in, etc. They (214s) do not list all the units or dates that I served in them during that period, it covers. some awards and decorations in some cases, does refer to the unit, & date awarded. Still no list of all units served in and/or dates. I do not rush off to my storage area to check dates, each time I write something.

Usually, such material is kept in ones '201 file,' which they don't normally release to you. I always tried to keep either the originals or copies of orders, award certificates, etc., however; such a practice, doesn't work to well in combat situations or even in rear areas, in most cases, in a place, like war time Korea. (1951 — 1953)

My time in the US Air Force Reserve, US Air Force NG, and the US Army Reserve from 1953 to 1984 is not covered by 214s, because they were not used or issued by NG & Reserve units, during that time period. I have heard that they use them now; however, I haven't confirmed that or when, if they are now using, when they started to use them, if they are.

The only thing one got was the Honorable Discharge certificate with your dates of service on the front. You got one of these each time you reenlisted. (No 214.)

I also lost a lot of my personal '201' type papers and photos in my divorce and some in 'Show & Tell,' sessions where my kids hijacked 'stuff' to show their fellow students and lost, especially photos.

When one only has only served on active duty, mostly in the same unit for 4 years, and 4 years in peacetime and the rest in the in-active reserve to complete his/her eight year military obligation. I can understand being right on top of dates, units, etc.

Try serving a total of 37 years military service, in two different branches USAF & USA, along with going between Regular Army, AF Reserve, AF National Guard components. To try to recall exact dates, all units, etc. in the proper order, off the top of your head isn't easily done. I'll vouch for that. (As well as a full time career as a LEO at the same time.)

I do remember, when I arrived in Korea and when I left 1951 — 1953, during that time I served in the Wolfhounds (27th Regiment, 25th ID, the 728th MP BN and a couple of other units, not mentioned as well.

I have made my last update on this little 'hijack,' of this thread. IMHO, I have provided more then enough info, for those questions asked, as well as far more info then most all of the people on this board. No doubt, I have bored some and irritated others. Since it was brought up, I felt it needed to be dealt with.

Note: From time to time I do make spelling, diction, typos and other types of mistakes in writing posts on this and other boards. I'm not infallible, like some others here. ;)

Trip, you belittled a mans honorable service for no good reason. I don't think most of us see that as particularly "warrior" like or even very mature. The sensible thing to do is to apologise and move on.
