Words so true in every respect, ......

Still the way I feel today, but I feel "more for my comrades" than Country, but she is still beside & inside me.

Could these new generations stand up to the rigours now ???

(I feel most would and could, but only time will tell as the future generations of "TRANS-Genders will let us down big time)

Ken, you ask if today's young men are up to it, l would think most of them are but I can't imagine why they would bother. All I would say is try spending a couple of hours wandering around Luton town centre and then ask yourself why anyone in their right mind would want to risk their lives for a country that has been allowed to sink so low. It's not our country any more and it will only get worse so why bother. Open borders, mass immigration and nut-jobs on the loose everywhere, that is not what previous generations fought and died for. I'm an Englishman born and bred, mainly of Scottish descent, and while I am proud to be British I'm afraid I am no longer proud of my country and what it has become.
