1914 – 2018...A Hundred Years of War!
The commemoration across the world of the beginning of – “The Great War” - “The First World War” - 100 years ago...!

Little did anyone realise or understand in the world, that from the end of “The Great War” in 1918, that only 20 years later the greatest conflict that mankind would ever witness and suffer through was “The Second World War” this in itself would become the most sadistic evil, brutal, destructive and devastating conflict the world would ever witness until our day in 2014!

S.O.E. Story
S.O.E.
In the face of overwhelming odds, many, if not all were confronted by such fear and terror, that it demanded of them some form of superhuman strength and endurance. Every agent suffered the loneliness of being far from home and their loved ones, alone in an enemy occupied land, never knowing what the next few hours would bring. Meeting unknown contacts to pass on messages, not knowing if their cover had been blown, or if they were being followed. Click Here for story.
 
Alick Thomas Theobald 1923 to 1990

A grenade landed on the armoured vehicle he was driving and blew back into his face taking his eye and part of his forehead exposing his brain. He fell wounded from the truck and was shot from behind by the enemy.

Covered in Shrapnel wounds and his face badly blown away he was rescued by Sgt T. Craig. Trooper Ellis.

The crews of these many aircraft were young “boys” and the aircraft that they flew in would either carry them to their glory or their death…as they heroically faced the enemy in the skies above England and Europe. These boys in the innocence of youth… would soon become men to the horrors of war. Click Here William Walter Story.

Guinea Pig Club
We are McIndoe’s army,
We are his Guinea Pigs.
With dermatomes and pedicles,
Glass eyes, false teeth and wigs.
And when we get our discharge
We’ll shout with all our might:

We’d rather drink than fight
