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.

    Dave: "Luckily for me Sir, I've adjusted well to playing with the ballroom left handed!"
     
  11. "Well, your Royal Highness, it's going to save me money - at least I won't need to buy shin-pads for playing football".
     
  12. 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
