Nothing today but watching the commemorations on the TV and quiet contemplation, shall raise a glass tonight to those who served our country.

Had a day at home sorting fabric stash for work, watched the BBC coverage and for once it was well done. Very moving but allowed them their moment to be treated as the heroes that they are. Even Richard Bacon (can't stand him!) was respectful and had obviously done some reading.
Will never forget my friends grandfather dropping to the floor in the street when he saw a young japanese couple approaching. He had a flashback of sorts and rolled up in a ball sobbing. I was only about 12 at the time and found it really distressing, but felt so sorry for the Japanese couple who were in tears when it was explained to them why he was reacting the way he was.

Raising a glass to them all, not least the brave nurses who were treated appallingly.

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]
