At today's LEEDS meeting, 141 Jim McKinny mentioned a unit who were in TS '46 I think. They were the HAMMERSMITH HIGHLANDERS. Anyone know anything about them ? Any others you can think of will be entertaining.

Football lovers
I don't care who you may sopport but if you watched the match last night (Liv and Arsenal) the I think that it will possibly spoil the watching of games in the future. That is how the game should be played . Very few fouls and no diving. It was about the best game th...

re Red Friday
Some very fine and just comments on the subject of Red Friday and I agree with every one of them. Our boys in uniform do not get the recognition or the credit due to them for the job they do. I know during the 39~45 war they were not shown any credit at times, but th...
