Hmmm.

I’d meant to post this when it happened but was very tired and didn’t want to have a North Korean overload here at WATT.  Which, as regular readers know, is an ever-present danger. Hehe. So, I went to bed.

What happened was… shortly after posting this thread, wherein I mentioned a boyish fantasy of flying a fighter plane and blowing up some really nasty folk’s personal stuff, I was casually looking at a couple of other ‘related videos’… and this  appeared.

Now, I don’t believe in coincidences, you see… as everything is connected.

Just thought it was a mighty strange one.

An interesting piece of history.

I worked for many years alongside one of the men that was flown out of that hell on the medi-ships, the dear man known as John Lionetti. Lots of memories, although we never really spoke of the war. Was very nice to think of him again.

Peace.
