I spent a thoroughly pleasant weekend in Normandy this past weekend. The Vets where treated like royalty and it was good to see young uns taking the time to get to the beaches and find out more about it.

Where is Swordsman, not been seen for a while? Is he still ok?
He PM'd me last week and was in fine form then. I had written him suggesting his memoirs would be a great book. Also to thank him for keeping the world a better place.

Thanks Friends. I am fine,and hope you are all too. Just got a new wheelchair...So if something goes Zooming by... beware it may be me ...BRmmm BRmmm...
Just for interest, this Saturday the Vice President of the Le Manche Countty Council in Normandy, is coming to my home at 11am to present me with a "Medal bar" With the local press. Look out lads and lasses! I am famous.

Actually I think it is a 65 anniversary medal bar. The real award that I won I am still waiting for.
So if any one come to my home...NO need to salute me...Big Grin! I would fall about laughing..

Swordman, sorry if i've missed it elsewhere, but what about a daily snipped from your diary/memory of 60yrs ago, starting maybe in June… ?
