If you are building a Spitfire and lose your mojo. Watch this. Even if you're not, watch it anyway. lol

That is indeed a rare event. I wish there were more of them out there now. That's real live history and you rarely ever get to hear about it. My grandfather was in Korea and was one of two guys who walked off a hill after a battle. He never speaks of it and I wish he would.

Listening to my dad talk about his experience as a tanker in Germany in the 70's is fascinating. I get caught up in it all.

So yeah Simon, good find.

Outstanding -- thank you! Three of my uncles served in WWII, and one remained in Normandy. I enjoy seeing "raw" footage of day-to-day events like that.

My pleasure mate, thank you for passing that on.
It was certainly a massive time in human history. Studied by generations yet, I'm sure. [smile]

Wow Simon that is a great little film,very moving thanks for sharing.

In my working life I'm lucky to get to meet a lot of senior citizens.
While most have interesting life stories it is a real honour to meet people that have served in the forces during WWII and Korea.
It can be very humbling when they open up and tell you some of their experiences.I think I am very lucky not to have had to go through some of the things previous generations did

Cheers,

Geoff.
