For, in no particular order, Simpson, Baxie, Jacko, Glasby, Waddie, Lackenby and those many more who made my brief membership of HM Army so memorable and enjoyable. Truly in my whole life since i have never met such a diverse and amazing bunch
Also a few poems to remind all of the price that can be paid for their freedom, amd a plea for support and proper respect for all members of HM Forces past and present
the only year
Since the Great War,
Supposed to ensure
We would fight no more,
No combat deaths
Of any serving Brit.
A sobering fact.
Do enough know it?
This site is also my tribute to Veterans of all wars and all Nations, for in truth they are all victims of the Political Animal, who will fight to the last drop of another's blood, and then sell out to save face.
They pay lip service to their Veterans, but in truth dishonour them by so doing
I would also ask readers to drop in on the International War Veterans Poetry Archives - http://iwpva.net and the inspiring www.poetrypoem.com/alwaysawarrior
This site is honoured to offer space to veterans, squaddies, etc for Forces related poetry should they like it appear here.
