''The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war,no matter how justified,shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation'' --George Washington--

I FOUND A PHOTO OF MY BROTHER IN ARMS ON THE NET.
Whilst surfing the internet yesterday looking for photos of Rapier missiles, I found a photograph of two brother soldiers that I served with in the 1982 Falklands War. Sergeant Bob Pearson (Right) and Gunner Mickey Quinn (Left) R.I.P. When I went back to the Islands in 2007 I made a 2007 Pilgrimage to Bluff cove where I was to witness the biggest loss of life to British service since World War two when the RFA Galahad was hit by Argentine aircraft. Anyone who is not familiar with what happened on that terrible day can read about it in my book Watching Men Burn about the Air Defence War in the Falklands.
