WILL THE BRITS EVER GET IT RIGHT

FIRST OF ALL WE CELEBBRATE THE QUEENS BIRTHDAY on the WRONG DAY. The second Monday in June. The Queens birthday is actually the 21st day in April.

SECONDLY THE BRITISH REMEMBER THE FALLEN IN WAR on the nearest sunday to the eleventh day of November. Is this in order to eliminate the workforce from indulging in yet another public holiday on REMEMBRANCE DAY. NOV 11

YESTERDAY Wednesday 29 June 2005. THE BRITISH STARTED THE 200th ANNIVERSARY OF THE (Sea) BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR CELEBRATIONS. ( Admiral Horatio Nelson and the HM SHIP of the line HMS VICTORY, currently preserved in dry dock in Portsmouth England and aged about 240 years, being the main attraction, together with a large contingent of British Commonwealth and visiting foreign Warships). The problem is, myself not being dimwitted as their Lords and Commissioners of the Admiralty(M O D: NAVY) seem to be, would like to point out that, the BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR WAS FOUGHT ON; THE TWENTY FIRST DAY OF OCTOBER 1805. Incidently; it was on a MONDAY, not on a Wednesday.
Admiral Horatio Nelsons Flag signal at the yard arm read(I believe this is close to being correct)
"TODAY ENGLAND EXPECTS THAT EVERY MAN WILL DO HIS DUTY" . Admiral Horatio Nelson died during the course of the battle.

REMINISCING or GOING BACK A FAIR BIT

Our ship and crew sailed north to the conflict in company of a vast number of other warships on Feb 28 1945. The period of three months involving operation 'Iceberg' which included eight weeks of continual contact with the enemy and lesser periods of involvement, near places like Okinawa 'The big one', on all fools day April 1, Easter Sunday 1945, where American forces landed and other places like Ishigaki, Myako shima and Sakashima gunto.
In my precarious, unenviable action station on the air defence position, I could see Kamikases galore. on many occasions, the brown trouser situation seemed imminent, but I was convinced that I was far too young to die; there were far too many more exciting things for me to achieve before that happened.
After leaving the operational area, we called into the U S A base at Guam in the Marianas. With us Were our escorting destroyers, The HM Ships Troubridge , Tenacious and Termagent. The crews enjoyed the shore recreational facilities and three cans of free beer, one or two beers were usually enough for me.
Lying at anchor close by was the USS Battleship Missouri. The crew of this great ship were surprised that our ship did not carry amenities such as Coca Cola and ice cream, so the American fleet soon rectfied this problem. The Battleship HMS King George V, became the first British warship to have an ice cream machine.
Our ship then sailed for Sydney Australia on the 30 May and arrived Tues June 5; for 3 weeks R and R and replenish our stores and ammunition. The war was soon to end.
Of course I have my own opinion regarding the use of the atomic bombs which decided the end of hostilities, during Operation 'Iceberg' over a quarter of a million civilians and Japanese, American and British Commonwealth servicemen lost their lives, prior to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It is sad that the innocent have to suffer for the immoralities of war.The millions of us who survived ww2 owe our lives to the clear sighted wisdom of the allied leaders in Washington and Whitehall who understood the jungle of problems to be faced and left the moralistic chuntering to those lost in the woods.
Our ship and others returned to the conflict up north June 28 45. Few people knew until much later that on July 16 (my 19th Birthday) the first Atomic test took place in the New Mexico Desert, also on this same date the British Pacific Fleet came under the direct control of the American fleet Commander. I believe this was due to a logistical support problem, the details I am not privy to, a good guess would be that us Brits had sort of 'run out of gas' as we were being refuelled at sea by American tankers.
I must mention here that the last warship of battleship class to fire an angry shot in wartime was HMS King George V in the afternoon of VJ day a few hours after the cease fire.
During the final days of the war against Japan KGV was involved with other ships( mostly American) that were bombarding the coast of Japan. On one particular night, one of our 'B' turret guns malfunctioned and only loaded the full charge without the 17cwt shell, in the confusion the gun fired and the full charge provided the best firework display ever, pieces of burning cordite in the thousands stuck to every one and anything in range burning decks and paintwork, trying to remove the burning cordite from my action overalls it burned through the anti flash gear I was wearing to prevent such burns.
Later on our journey back to Sydney , sailors were employed to Patch up burnt paintwork , the burns on the decks were rubbed down with pumice blocks called holy stones, the larger blocks were called Bibles!!
HMS King GeogeV, was the 2nd British ship to enter Tokyo, there was much dissension when HMS Duke Of York entered first, as it had only just arrived from Sydney where it had been swinging around a bouy for several months and had not fired one angry shot, the senior Admiral Bruce Fraser was the CinC in his nice shiny ship, so our vice Admiral Bernard Rawlings and our crew took second billing. So being a great surviver from other minor conflicts too, and being a gunnery man during my career, I feel it is fair to say the sight of guns and the stink of gunpowder and cordite really fails to turn me on. AVAGDAY ZS.

Australian Values differ from those of our neighbour Indonesia

Chapelle Corby, The 27 year old Australian beauty consultant,Will be incarcerated in a Indonesian prison for the next 20 years, for allegedly smuggling 4.5 kilos of Marijuana.
Corby will receive no special privileges apart from comfort gifts of food and personal items. It is not expected that, the Australian Govt will assist Corby, or interfere in the case.

A un-named Indonesian drug offender, serving 4 years in a Australian prison for a similar offence, has been afforded the privilege of 'Day Release', so that he is able to earn aprox Aus$400-00 per week to enable to him to support his Indonesian dependants.

The Senior Indonesian Judge responsible for the conviction of Corby, is paid a salary To the equivalent of Aus$7,000-00 per Ann.

A Single Australian Male; Dole Recipient,is awarded the equivalent of Aus$12,500-00 Per Ann. for doing absolutely sod all.

The Indonesian Prisoner In Australia on day release earns the equivalent of Aus$20,800-00 per Ann.

Now this info is available in Indonesia, We can now expect a plethora of Indo drug courier zombies arriving in OZ to enjoy the good life.

The WOBBLIES WOBBLY CULT has now reached the USA, CANADA, GREAT BRITAIN, and now AUSTRALIA.
The Book by the well known Author 'JOHN LEONARD SPENCER, Titled ' WAVING GOODBYE TO A THOUSAND FLIES'; Has spawned a great deal of interest in the term ' Wobblies', used frequently by a charactor in his book, when describing Ladies breasts or what was, as the new cult followers state; were once referred to as TITs And other common names.

EXCERPTS from his book may be read by clicking on the book Cover image.
Some excerpts referring to the term wobblies are as follows.

Bob then continued saying " Uncle Albert had described me as an unusual sort, who had not only a fetish , but a gourmet attitude whe it came to to ladie's Wobblies.

We had a different conductor on the bus on the way home, he was more considerate than the other conductor who objected to my groping Emily's wobblies, and suggested I share my coat with the young lady who was asleep and shivering. I then removed my warm hand from my glove and caressed her Wobblies, which brought a beautiful smile to Emily's face.

It was rather dark in the cinema, Emily kissed me full on and placed my hand on her left Wobbly, for an almost sixteen year old this was fun.

I have read this book and thoroughly recommend it, worth re- reading, some parts more than just twice. Well, what are you waiting for, get it now, Its hot.

Goodbye Dear Rosemary. (Final)
