IL2: Battle Of Stalingrad / Re: Woohoo! New kites for BoS!

Damn you Conkers!  I thought, "How come I don't have a P47?", so now I do, but my bank account is 57 quid lighter.  What with that and the SSD I think I've pre-bought my own Christmas presents

Hi BD,

14 hours to Brisbane, another 5 to Perth, then a two-hour drive...

Currently stuck at Brisbane airport, weather delays is Sydney causing havoc all over the east coat.

Well we may not trust some of the Belgian chaps negotiating Brexit, but the chap that bought my Panther kept his word and sent me these pictures of my poppy on an unmarked grave near Mons.

Very grateful to him.

Very true BD.

This really was a very poignant Remembrance Day.

I found it very hard to watch the Peter Jackson film "They Shall Not Grow Old". The added colour and detail just made it so disturbing......but that's how it was and it just adds appreciation to those that were involved in that conflict.

I usually lay my poppy at Tarrant Rushton airfield memorial but this year was different. It made sense to part with my little Panther Kallista in view of circumstances and last week a chap from Belgium (not far from Mons) rang up and offered the asking price. He arrived with a trailer on Friday and after agreeing to take my poppy attached to the radiator he departed for the Channel Tunnel. It will I'm told be laid at one of the memorials near Mons......wish I could have gone myself.
