  • We always said the Yanks turned up...

    In time for tea and medals, this one did... the Iron Cross!!!

    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.

        Nice one in the back pocket for when our tame Yanks next start bleating about our lads joining the Waffen SS... innit!?

          If this thread has no purpose than to stir up the **** which judging from the title and this last post seems to be the case, take it elsewhere .
