Will the British Ambassador be laying a wreath for Major Thompson, who so gallantly died assisting the Communist and pro-Soviet "partisans" in their successful attempt to introduce 50 years of Russian and Communist oppression to Bulgaria? Evil or Very Mad

They served in whatever capacity they thought was necessary at the time and paid the price with their lives whichever side they were on. I forget the facts about Major Thompson now, but I think you have linked it somewhere on here before albeit, the Communists would still have taken over Eastern Europe whatever Thompson did or did not do.

During my tidy up and sort out, I came across my two medals this evening. They're very tarnished and in no fit state to attend any kind of remembrance so in their boxes they will remain as I have neither Brasso or Duraglit or the will to spend hours working on them. However, I shall attempt to find a stream to watch the show on Sunday morning.

I'm almost tempted to turn out myself, resplendent in the gongs that my old man was awarded for wasting his life and energy for King and Country, and in the interests of Global Capitalism. However, my republican beliefs - and cynicism towards jingoism in all its manifestations - will probably result in me lying in bed and listening to the Home Service while pretending to read The Grauniad... Wink

Nonetheless, I really do object to the glorification of the process of conning a whole generation of innocents into getting themselves maimed and killed so that The System could simply march forward into the future, even though my background and education probably makes me one of Them rather than Us.....

Jeez - I really must ease up on the rakiya!
