  • About to pour a large drink

    I've just had the e mail from the faculty, 50 years after gaining my first degree in Economics I've qualified with an MA in history (World War One). Whooopee, if I sound smug it's because I'm feeling damn smug. Brain still working even if the rest is going South.

          I'd forego Jose50's god's sake, and stick to something more indigenous, unless of course you prefer a New Hampshire brewed Japanese bevy?

                  I know a couple of people who have done history degrees after they have retired. Would be good to do one in about 20 years or so.

                        Félicitations de la Normandie !
                        Now you're clever enough to find the resting place where my great grand father died in 4/1918 somewhere in Belgium.��
                        Bravo!

                            Well done old chap... I always thought you couldn't possibly be as thick as wot you come over on this 'ere forum.

                            The long toll of the brave
                            Is not lost in darkness
                            Over the fruitful earth
                            And athwart the seas
                            Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                            Unquenchable forever.
