Remembering The Battle of Arnhem "Open your eyes and scan the sky, where they came down like birds from on high, Those Red Berets, so courageous, without fear, who strived for Arnhem and paid so dear #lestweforget
Treated myself to something I have wanted for a long time, my Tattoos all mean something to me and this is representative of not only my own sacrifices but for those that sacrificed their lives for our freedom. It represents, my life the soldier and the son is symbolic to me from my father to my own kids, we served to protect and provide for our families unselfishly, without question or hesitation. My dad died 15 years ago when I was in Afghanistan my brother died 5 years ago when I was in Africa, gone but never forgotten. #loveamdfamily#lestweforget#fathersfootsteps#respectisearnednotgiven@thenautilustattooco
Had the deep privilege of making a documentary two years ago for the 75th anniversary of Battle of Britain day. It was a humbling experience and the imprint of the sacrifice and bravery of the men and women whom I met whilst filming will never leave me. #lestweforget
Thiepval today in glorious September sunshine. More importantly Guest and friend Jo Bayley had invited us to come to a ceremony her students from Chauncy School, Ware were holding. Jo is a history teacher and regularly brings her students to the battlefields. Today we witnessed a humbling experience. A group of young people who were engaged and enthused by the history around them. Students read out the names of men of Ware, Hertfordshire who died on the Somme, a wreath was laid, another student read the exhortation and Kohima epitaph. It is wonderful to see tomorrow's generation engaged in the history of the War and their home town. But then Jo Bayley is a special teacher who deserves credit for her work. We will remember them. #thiepval#chauncyschool#lestweforget
Today, 73 years ago, after 6 days of battle #Arnhem was evacuated. The city was no longer liveable due to heavy fighting. After 9 months people returned to their homes but found then in rubble. German troops left nothing usable. Everything they could break got broken, toilets where clogged and water and electricity was not available.
Why do we as a country (#Britain) allow those who would wish harm on the #britishpeople to live and settle among us, to terrorise innocent British people - our people - and not impose more stringent laws against the arrival of new radicals to this country, and/or revoke the citizenship of existing extremists? The liberal PC authorities, to paraphrase Ray Honeyford, use the term 'racist' in an almost McCarthyist manner when we as the British people 🇬🇧 call for the enforcement of British law against this threat. #lestweforget#immigrationcontrol#takebackcontrol#muslimagainstdaesh#muslimagainstextremism
In the @dailymail - Iraqi asylum seeker made bucket bomb and packed it with shranpnel, screws and knives, to unleash on Parsons Green commuters, due to his warped political views. Why do we as a country let those who wish harm on our #britishpeople through our borders?
