    Hats off to the old girl. Several veterans I've spoken to tell of her contribution to morale during the war. Hope she has a wonderful ton-up birthday celebration.

    Just saw a clip on the news of a bunch of veterans standing on top of the 'white cliffs' in a howling gale and driving rain to pay tribute to the Dame. Getting out there in absolutely filthy weather, and they were not exactly in the first flush of youth, well done lads, rather you than me :)
    Cheers
