Talking to my lad on the phone just now, and he said ,I've just read the registration plate of the vehicle in which the Arch Duke Ferdinand was assinated prior to WW1 was 111118. Armistice Day. I never knew that !

I think it is Tone, my lad saw it on U tube, he said some visitor to the museum where the vehicle is part of the display had asked the bloke in charge if that was the original number plate. And the reply was yes.

When you think the only forms of communication with the general public in those days was either Newspapers, public speakers or bill posters. So it was not surprising that the call to arms was so responsive, along with those females who thought it was their patriotic duty to give any man out of uniform a white feather irrespective of the fact that some were under age, or unfit through medical conditions . Thousands flocked to recruiting stations to sign up.I doubt today with social media, television, and other forms of communication whether we would have the same response with the general populace knowing how families suffered due to losses in both WW1 and WW2. With the mistakes made by all sides regarding military leadership leading to their relatives being buried in unknown graves in foreign lands.

Slightly off subject (for a change) did not realise that Gen George Patten US WW2) died after a road accident soon after the war ended in Germany or Austria (?) and is buried there and not in US, find that surprising as he was considered 'the best war fighting general the US had'. Conspiracy theorists think the Russians organised the crash

Wig....Thats because he wanted to use the German Army along with the Allies to shove.....escort them back... East of Poland.....and said so.
Eisenhower went nuts. Churchill nearly fainted. He was dead two months later. Could have been either side. Could have been an accident but you are talking a bloke that had just gone from the Kasserine Pass debacle through the Battle of the Bulge, at the head of his 3rd Army mostly, and on into the heartland of Germany, with out a scratch.
Just seems odd.

The Us Army and he himself think that he killed a bloke in 1918 on the Meuse Argonne. He had some freshly minted American Tankers holed up in the thick of it in a trench and they would not break cover under fire. He threatened them and one still would not have it so he hit him in the swede with a shovel and he died. He openly admitted . "I may be guilty of murder".
He would have made a good Provost Sergeant in the Reg..... :0)

Anybody remember "The Grove Family" ?

Might well have been the first British program of its kind.
I must have been six when it came on. We never had a telly then. We got a telly when I was ten or eleven...but I used to catch a bus to Walsall to watch the Cisco Kid on a friends telly and saw the The Grove family and Murder Bag while I was there.

What an age...when a six year owd kid could go two towns on a bus.... by himself...and back and not have to worry.

Bin 403'd about 4 times on the trot. The wording in my posts did not contain any naughty words. Can someone explain in simple terms (coz I am simple) who the f**k initiates a 403, why, and are there any guidelines from whoever carries out the 403 about what kicks a 403 off, then I can follow the rules. Army adage 'only issue an order that is capable of being clearly understood and capable of being carried out'. C**ts!

Ena and Granny got well placed in the over 70's naked trampolining contest in 1955, a retired 'woman' Russian shot-putter came first i think her name was Tamara Pissed, Ena second, Granny would have done better but one of her tits got caught under her foot as she executed a barrel roll, f***ed it up.
