MuddleC Falklands 25yearson /HorseGuards Parade (52* d) RE: Falklands 25yearson /HorseGuards Parade 19 Jun 07


Kathryn Nutbeem, apparently a folk singer as well as accomplished actress, her father's guitar was salvavalaged from the wreck and returned.
I wasn't trying to start a discussion on the rights or wrongs of it all, I was moved by the feeling in her singing... so much so I didn't realise there was simple accompaniment.... it was done well, thankyou BBC sound man!
To stand there, in the middle of the square, and not crack-up under the emotion that she herself was party to... well... out flippin'standing.
I have rememberances of the trip down, I was somewhere 'South of Acension' on my first wedding anniversary... the ship I was on had a huge crack down one side and during storms the water actually flowed across the cabin deck several inches deep! The helicopter lashings reminded me of the way King Kong swayed and pulled on the stage in New York...

When politics fail, people die. Sometimes it is for honourable reasons, other times...well, as we say in the Andrew 'If you can't take a joke, you shouldn't have joined up!! It was our way of coping with the stupidity of man. But when you sign the form, you undertake to go..unlike some modern royalty.

Thank you Kathryn Nutbeem for the different slant on memorial parades.
(I thought HRH Andy's attempt at keeping in step was hilarious too!)
