Just checked that the "Nautical, strange but true" thread was still there.....I'd hate to lose it. Being the 30th anniversary of the Falklands conflict I zeroed in on that, and was surprised at many of the subsequent comments by "mayhemmers" were in a way very apposite to the situation we, as a country, now find ourselves in. Lack of resources. Money, in other words. But our "politicians" still seem to find the defence of the country subservient to squandering £Billions on welfare. I despair.....again. BY.
