    I wonder how many of these young men were struck off ration strength fourteen days later.

    When you think about the amount of organisation that went in to a Bn drop, D Day organisation was mind boggling. I froze the clip when it showed the lads a briefing and their faces were no different to the ones you would see today, and no doubt lots of 'butterflies' in stomachs. Wonder what they would make of the UK today?

    Wig.... Whats happened in the Western world would bemuse them lads in that video if they could come back. The ones that were killed in action I mean. We would be hard done to explain it to them. They come from a moment in time where eminent common sense ruled the day. This Political Correctness we endure today would rock their heads back I bet.
