    This thread needed a bump to educate the younger viewers.

    Okay since I couldn't wait I attempted to read this second installment by urgh. Due to unforeseen circumstances (Brandy up my nose), I must desist for the time being. Never fear as I have placed a bookmark and shall return as soon as possible. I am beginning to understand why my forefathers came to reside in America versus some place where the Romans lived and then left also.

    I hate to post back to back replies but I'm so confused now I'm not sure if I'm actually posting this or if I already have. I would like to point out that my paternal Grandfathers name was Henry. I apologize it took me this long to finish what I can only say is one of the most "interesting" accounts of triumph and travesty, uh tragedy. Someone must have swiped my 'bookmark' as I could not find where I had left off and had to begin at the beginning again. Thanks urgh and I await further installments.

    Over two YEARS ?? How could we let this literary masterpiece languish on the book shelve of the ww2f library?

    I sure wish urgh would revisit his writing desk. The World needs his musings.

    ''Rock Apes'' is slang for members of the RAF Regiment.
