Sounds a brilliant event Wids.... You know Monty did have a double in the War...both were crap imo. I'm a Patten man. He was far more aggressive... even with his injured men. Wanted to carry on & finish the Russians off...declaring we might as well fight them now than later on. Think he was then sacked by Ike. ATB
Just met Monty & Eisenhower WW2 celebration in the Cotswolds. All the kit jeeps, old buses, cars, everyone dressed in 40s style. Singing the old war time favorites. Couldn't get near enough to Monty to say he was crap...lol
The original patron saint of England was St Edmund, but his influence began to wane when Richard the Lionheart adopted St George as the protector of his army whilst on crusade. Edmund was finally replaced when King Edward III formed the Order of the Garter in St. George's name in 1350 and made him the Patron Saint of England. The cult of the Saint was further advanced by King Henry V at the battle of Agincourt in northern France. http://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofEngland/St-George-Patron-Saint-of-England/ CHEERS 🥂
Tivvi01. With hindsight it's generally agreed Lehmann brothers was a bad mistake. Immediately after declaring Lehmann bankrupt the markets started to crash. Panic and lack of trust in any bank throughout the West forced a massive credit crunch. Only massive Government intervention averted a complete financial collapse. ATB
