Several comments ago I mentioned that I still shudder when I think of the time the house next door to my junior school blew up.
I wonder what the veterans of WW2 experienced when, like my family, we received news that a film was being made which involved aeroplane dogfights over the area. It was so real and the memory lives on. I remember standing in the garden and watching. For me it was all very exciting, but for those who remembered the real thing or suffered from the terror of nightly air raids, I’m sure their thoughts were different.
On a happier note, as a supporter of Help for Heroes and other such charities which do wonderful support work, how pleasing that more Governmental money is being set aside for the very best prosthetic limbs for soldiers who have done their duty for this country.
