Very interesting photos Mollers, thank you.

We think of WW2 in black and white, because that's how we are shown it. But the people that I knew who were there were very colourful indeed, and they tended not to have a black and white view of our world...

Not at all. Seeing as you're being unusually obtuse, I'll break my own rule and explain further:

The colour bit is obvious - we think of WW2 as B&W images. Patently those who experienced it didn't. We see WW2 footage in colour as startling, they must have found B&W as very lacklustre indeed. It's sort of back to front.

The men and women who experienced that time tended to have a fairly philosophical view of life afterwards. Had they been wasting time on here (and they might have as some pursued very narrow interests), you'd find they didn't twat on about the Germans, or immigrants or bloody rugby like it meant anything...

I think what I'm saying is they knew they had a life, because they'd fought for it and they knew what it was to take one.

Indeed, if they had a Vipermax in the shed, they'd dust it off and use it and stop feeling sorry for themselves...
