Awesome news - now can we get you to this side of the pond for a proper DTT meet-up?
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Maybe if his book takes off his publisher would send him on a world-wide book signing tour!   ;D

Wow ..... I'm truly humbled by the outpouring of good wishes from you guys [ and girls ]. I honestly DO feel rejuvenated and going to live forever - as we all think when we're 20, 30, 40, 50. 60 .......

I was given this quote by one of my good pals - you know who you are and I'm shamelessly going to steal it for myself.

" FATE WHISPERS TO THE WARRIOR ..... YOU CANNOT WITHSTAND THIS STORM ..... AND THE WARRIOR SAYS...................... I AM THE STORM".


Tim / RS - I have been thinking along those lines. As and when the Book is completed I was wondering if I could put together a tour of talks and book signings that might pay for my trip to meet you all. Barber I guess is the obvious place. To be realistic I don't see the book being published this year [ it WILL be completed ] and next year is my 3 score and 15 .... seems like an appropriate time - three quarters of a century - not out [ cricket parlance ! ] to contemplate a trip. Let's see.

Once more, my undying gratitude for all your thoughts, prayers and good wishes.

When the Reaper comes for me he better come tooled up and bring a few mates, cos I ain't going without a fight.  And if there's on thing British Infantry Squaddies like doing, it's fighting!
If it ain't broke, then I haven't been hitting it hard enough.

Cheers, Beach.  Very glad to read.
