Medals?

The 1st on the left looks like the 1939 - 1945 star, but the ribbon is the wrong way round by the looks of it.

Correct.

Note CND badge. One of my neighbours, ex 13/18H, wears a CND baseball cap. He wears it with a smile and jokes that he has had enough of war!

Lots of 'old soldiers' feel that way, but as none the politicians have ever had a snowball aimed at them, we'll go on having wars.

Fucking hell, if such thing as a thread which can't be twisted into a political rant exists, sign me up. :roll:

Aye Mike, I agree. If the old boy served over the skies of Europe in WW2, he earned the right to pretty much say what he likes!

I concur, he fought for freedom of speech and is now voicing it.
That's how I see it working.

I was about to go off on one about it being fine for those who have been there and done it to have an informed opinion about nuclear disarmament and ask "but what about CND figureheads like the laicised Catholic priest Bruce Kent?"

Only to stop, think about his age and ask, "But did he do his time?"

Turns out he did, in the RTR no less. Furry muff.
