We held the line for Liberty

With grim determination throughout ...

 ... and could still retain our sense of humour, even in the darkest of times.

I shall raise a glass in memory of all four of my grandparents who all did their bit.

Larry, that line says it all..."We held the line for liberty"...I've had my fill today of people down playing what this nation did. We could have taken the easy way out in 1939 just as Russia and The USA did. but we didn't we went to the aid of others, we didn't wait until we were attacked to react.

15/09/2020 : This day cannot pass without comment, it being the 80th Anniversary of Battle of Britain Day. I said in my post about VE Day that we held the line for Liberty ... the 'we' is true for us as a Nation, but it was they, the Few, backed up by the many support staff, who actually held that line. We today are forever in their debt.
