Here is Part 3 of 4 of the Black Horse Trail 2018. This part covers the period when 7 Field Company RE, then in the 50th Division, who were sent to rest and rebuild on a quiet part of the front in the French sector, The Chemin des Dames. Unfortunately, it was at this sector that German, General Ludendorff decided to attack on the Third German Spring Offensive. It was a major disaster for the British Army.December 19, 2018 at 10:59 am #312

Tell you what. I’ve never been a Francofile as anyone who knows me will attest BUT they do know how to protest don’t they. I remember a few years ago when they were worried about our sheep making theirs look crap. They didn’t put a lot of effort into improving their sheep as we would have been told to do were it the other way round. Oh no. They stopped all the trucks carrying British sheep and set them free and trashed the truck. There was a bit of a do over onions as well. The French simply tipped them out into the road and ran over them. I don’t ever remember reading that anyone was prosecuted and I’ll bet next weeks wage they weren’t. Now they’ve set every French city on fire because their petrol was going up a bit. Boris would have bought the water cannons back off whoever he gave them to were that to happen here. (What’s happened to that dick-head by the way)
There was a bloke on TV news this morning who advocates telling the pollies to leave the EU without any agreement. According to the figures he trotted out we will all be better off inside seven years. It all made sense to me. There were less if’s and buts in his statement than any of the others and the interviewer was left stuttering. Apparently the media wasn’t prepared for such a radical solution. I once left a yacht club by the simple expedient of not paying next years subs. I was not castigated or flogged at the whipping post. I know yacht clubs are, by and large, more important than pollies, but the principal is similar.
I’m getting pd off now by all the what ifs and pompous little pricks on tele every day telling me how lucky I am to have them batting on my side. Stand back from it all and ask what the EU has achieved in the 40 years we’ve been members. Then ask yourself could we have done it anyway and without the. We owe Europe nothing.December 2, 2018 at 10:30 am #308
Well done Chris, thanks for the update. Put it all on a horse. See you in April.December 1, 2018 at 12:05 pm #307

I have organised a wreath for Geoff as per usual in these circumstances. It will be delivered to the funeral director prior to the funeral. Is anyone from Shiny going? I never knew him.November 26, 2018 at 11:28 am #303
Andrew Jackson has asked to have this message posted on the NB:
Sadly, Geoff Voce died on 8th November in Ripon. His funeral will be held at Harrogate crematorium at 1.40pm on Friday 30th.
Geoff was Squadron Clerk for a good spell and, as I remember him, one of the squadron’s top “fixers”. He was 74 and leaves a son, daughter and two grandchildren.

Georges video of Westminster and you recollections of the day with your family highlights the importance of remembrance. I think that this year everyone has gone the extra mile, I just hope it continues in the years to come.
