For those of us,
who have shared…..,
that uncertain moment. 
Of hostile shores, 
of unknown obstacles. 
For those…….,
that made that beach,
and beyond .
I salute you …..Class of 44!
From a world away…..
and the Class of 82.
Envy …….sometimes, 
doesn’t cover it, Jimbo. 
It was, indeed …….an adventure . 
A place in history. 
A part of something,
that only those,
that were there, will ever know. 
Momentous.
Better us…..
than the message, on the door.
“Ammunition expended,
God save the King”.
Arnhem ……..1944.

We’ve Shared Slipstream…

Everyman an Emperor.
