I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THAT STATEMENT! Although I have no wish to start a political argument,either here or anywhere else.Why should we be sorry for bombing German Cities,we should not lose fact of the thousands that were killed when our cities were bombed.
It is a very sorry fact that civilians suffer through wars, even this very day innocents are being killed by un called for bombardments and rocket attacks.
If we want another bell to display, why not let the millionaire offer to bring back the Ship's Bell of HMS RAMILLIES, which now languishes in HMCS Star, just outside Toronto, and is more of a sailing club than a naval base. So few people ever get to see this bell,so bring it back where it belongs ! When I tried to get it back, the Portsmouth Naval Museum didnt want to know!
