Some people are not home yet

Peter Davis

A soldier’s night before Christmas:-

But one came home in a box:-

These chaps are still there:-


  1. A serialisation of a Spitfire pilot’s story I’ve seen on TV or through text;

    “I came from the Czech land which had been overrun by Germany, and I didn’t know if my family was alive or dead. I didn’t really care. They kept asking me if I wanted coffee or cocoa, and I told them no, ‘I just want to fight.’ “I was convinced that Great Britain was going to lose this war. They gave me a plane called the Supermarine Spitfire, and a short handbook to learn for my first manouvers. I knew they were asking far too much that was possible, but I did it. I thought I would die. To my amazement, the plane reacted perfectly, it felt like I was held tightly in a cradle (That’s because the Spitfire keeps optimum wind resistance at all degrees because of it’s wing formation) and when I landed back at the airfield, I went straight to the canteen and had a coffee. I knew then, we could win.”

    An old TV program I saw years ago, please correct me on details and/or/if I’m wrong.
