I'm over at a multi-national meeting at the moment in Espaņa...

Hopped onto the coach first thing this morning and hailed a Luftwaffe mate:

"Ah, die Deutsche! Happy Battle of Britain Day! Don't forget you buggers lost!"

"OK - next time you can have the Italians!"

"We did the first time - and you also lost then!"

So tonight we've had an excellent run ashore. We must never forget, but equally don't forget the losses amongst 'brother fliers' on all sides. Politicians suck (especially if they have a penchant for silly moustaches), but respect for all those who had to do what they did should reasonably be observed.
