    GH - Thanks for that welcome back - it was truly a great but fast trip....
    might manage another to Italy with Paul in the fall....

    Cheers


    Tom,

    I am sure that a trip with Paul to Italy would surely bring back a flood of memories.

    I hope that you make it.

    Regards
    Tom

    I thought the site might like to see this evidence of three ex-cavalry types meeting up in London for a very pleasant meal and LOTS of reminiscing.

    The bearded one is yours truly, sitting next to me is Tom Canning and opposite is Gerry Chester.

    We all take this opportunity of sending everyone our very good wishes for 2009 :D

    Cheers

    Ron
    I know this is an old thread but would just like to say how fantastic to see the three of you looking so well. Great picture.

    Lesley - it's always good to see that someone trawls back into what is a three year old thread and makes a complimentary comment - so thank you for reminding me of the friendships which both the BBc series and this forum has engendered and still lasts to this day.....

    The "three ex Cavalry types " meeting perhaps is a bit strange for newcomers to read so I would point out that Ron served with the 4th Hussars- Gerry with the North Irish Horse and myself with 16/5th Lancers..three great Tank regiments which served with distinction in North Africa - and Italy culminating in the pursuit into Austria and Germany....job done !
    Cheers

    Cheers

    Never boring Tom.
    You and the other veterans who grace this site are an invaluable link to those events and to the memory of your comrades.

    Whenever I see the lines,

    "The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die".

    I'm always reminded that each of you has carried that torch in the finest tradition.
