Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    Which allows me to mention, again:

    Other nurse: "It's not Ludo... it's Llandudno"

    Try 'Sub Lieutenant, a Personal Record of the War at Sea', Ludovic Kennedy, Batsford 1942. LK served on board HMS Tartar on the Bismarck chase and other adventures. His father lost his life in 1939 in command of HMS Rawalpindi (armed merchant cruiser, converted P&O liner) engaging the Nazi battle cruisers Scharnorst and Gneisenau and thereby foiling those ships' breakout into the Atlantic. RIP.
  3. Very sorry to hear about Ludo's death, despite his advanced age. RN veteran, fine journalist and a liberal in the best sense of the word.
  4. I remember he had the slot on Radio 4 right after a ship was announced as sinking in the falkands, he seemed very moved at the time.

  5. Pro euthanasia advocate . He'll be missed :(
  6. Agreed. Sad news.
  7. Ludovic Kennedy, RIP. Another of the 'Greatest Generation', fades away.
  8. Sadly there's no other place a reformed liberal could go.
