    Totally agree. What a wonderful, beautiful woman. I visited her family's estate shortly before she died. They had some very famous friends. Winston Churchill was born in their house.

    I know what you mean I remember as a kid my great grandfather telling me about the horror of the Somme and him thinking himself lucky to have been captured by the Germans, my Grandfather (his son) would also tell me about WW2, Korea and his time in the Royal Marines. (not the bad stuff, all the fun he got up too) To think that less than 15 years ago we would be in the same room chatting and now it's only me left is a sobering thought. At least now we can record the stories before it's too late.

    Sorry to hijack the thread.
