"Well at least it'll save you money on charity bracelets, you've got no room for any more there."

He served with my Grandfather on HMS Wallace. They were both there when she was in a major collision during a North Sea convoy and was subsequently broken up. They had some rather bad times on those convoys. My grandfather never got over having to leave men behind in the water. I doubt he was alone in that.

He's taken up extensive plastic surgery and a fondness for shit tat's too. Not to mention limb re-distribution and digit ratio's...
OH, sorry - I didn't realise we had to put what was *actually* said, I thought we could put something that vaguely fit the picture

It's possibly a bit harsh cracking jokes about a Vet, but he'd most likely get a cheer-up from some gallows humour, judging by his story. Soldier on Dave!

Duke: "It must be totally horrid to have lost three limbs. I imagine your days of ballroom are over."

Dave: "Luckily for me Sir, I've adjusted well to playing with the ballroom left handed!"

Required isn't it? A mate of mine came back sans feet from Sierra Leona* but with a broken jaw (and various other minor scrapes) and we bought him a running magazine and some toffee


*may have been somewhere else. Ricky D, if you're out there, let us know
