Only right that he have a "little bit extra" to mark his passing, maybe not for his funeral mind.
In a way we are saying good bye to thousands who have never had a funeral, to a generation that we will miss and to a man who was (and by his own admission) very lucky and has (by chance) become the figurehead for those lost over the years.
I hope we don't end up with brown and other imbeciles waxing lyrical about how he was the "peoples World War One Trench Veteran" or some such sh1t.
I hope FHM sends off one of their Centuriens in fine style... a lasting reminder to the young lads of today what a true British Man should be.
RIP Harry, I have visions of you laid in you bed in the care home, looking out of the window at all the tommies that went before you and they are beckoning you mate, and saying "It's not that bad at all chum"...Stand down..
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam;
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wN-NIHbfJ1k
