  1. I must admit that have not read much about the heroic deeds of the French Resistance during the Second World War but this book ( which i cannot praise enough ) was a great read. One passage in particular, i won't tell you about it just incase you get yourself a copy, left me with a huge lump in my throat and reaching for a hanky ( i must be getting a bit soft in my old age). Take a look at http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0...8525588-9035821

    Das Boot "Director's cut"

    Your spot on mate, Das Boot is, without doubt, the best WW2 flick to portray the terrible conditions and horrendous dangers faced by those brave men.

    Lest we forget

    Chucktoo, what a great post. It is always worth a reminder, even for people like ourselves, that we should never forget the dedication and sacrifices made by our armed forces.

    Colin, i'm sorry if i've hit a bit of a nerve with this one but i still think it's good idea.

    UK Veterans Badge

    Colin, you are without doubt a veteran and should be proud of the fact (i'm sure you are). I hope you have applied to the MOD for yours.

    UK Veterans Badge

    Ex Serviceman within the UK can now wear, with pride, a badge supplied by the MOD (Ministry of Defense), which when worn, let's everyone know that they are a Veteran. It's a great and long overdue idea. If there are any members from the UK who saw service in WW1, WW2 or even did National Service in Malaya, then follow the link and get what you have earned. http://www.veteransagency.mod.uk/vets_badg.../vets_badge.htm

    It's only a guess (and i've not asked Google honest) does it stand for Amphibious Personnel Assault, like some sort of landing craft?
