    No wonder you enjoyed it, tone. You must have been fxcking starving by the time you got there.

    It's easier to mop up the piss from the floor than dry the mattress!

    I might drive back up just to see those photos and letters. The Holocaust Museum would give their right arms for a gander and copies. They would be up on the wall so fast. They are always searching for unpublished first account evidence to shove down the Denier Liars throats.....

    No Gil ....Coventry would have been a doddle for me. I only lived 14 miles as the crow flies from Bill S 's pad.

    Bill M's is a tad farther

    This was me favourite haunt in Coventry. Macbeth and what not. Hubble bubble toil and trouble.

    Bills toast looks like a fresh crusty doorstep Bob. Tons of butter. If I lived by him I would be fifteen stone.

    That's the only way to eat toast, anything else is just warm bread.

    There were several Brits on Longdon,and in Stanley,in '82.I remember a ginger haired cockney one,whose parents had taken him home when they returned to Argentina after 40 yrs in London.We were given a bollocking by the platoon commander for fraternizing,when he came in to find us feeding him beer in the kitchen when he was on a work detail.We had to point out to the wanker that he was probably more English than us,and was no longer an enemy!

    There were loads in the Turkish Army in Cyprus as well.They had all been conscripted the same way as the Argentines,to get citizenship after parents returning.They were mostly posted to,I think it was called Famou Gate,or something like it,a main crossing point,as translators.

    Help me out chaps, what exactly does the Turkish Army in Cyprus, the blame on the Junta or the original ethnicity of Argie troops on the Falkland Islands have to do with “Driving 1000 miles for breakfast?”

    The breakfast was huevos rancheros, so it's a natural progression Kevin.

    Pat - that has a similar sounding explanation to one I receive from a crow (soon to be ex-crow) in depot, it went something like “honestly corporal, I did not pull the trigger, it just went off.......”
