Yes, Shaa, we know - and don't forget.

I see all these photo's of men and women celebrating the end of the war, hundreds dancing in the streets of the various allied capitals and I remember that we were glad but apart from that it was another working day.More relaxed of course but we were busy spreading ourselves out over the German ships in Kiel as guards. Have often wished that we could have done something differant on that day. lcm1
