Having just managed to put a video on my website ( for someone with my limited knowledge, it was quite an accomplishment) of 51st HD Veterans in Vught for 60th anniversary of their Liberation, in 2004. It made me wonder how long it will be before we are unable to glean any of their knowledge, memories, and experiences. I remember chatting to Robert Burns in 2000 at the Camerons gathering, he was nearing his 105th birthday and was the last surviving 1st WW Highlander. He told me some wonderful stories. There were about 20 veterans in Holland in 2004. In 1994 there were about 260. A morbid thought, but makes you wish you had listened and spoken to them more. All that information and so little understanding by the younger generation of the older. Sad really.
