Long struggle.

Byline: J. DAVIS

IFELT I had to write to thank Philip Solomon for his letter, suggesting a payout to all the old soldiers. It is sufficient for us to know that there are so many who appreciate our efforts.

I lost lots of pals at Dunkirk, The Western Desert, Salerno, Monte Cassino and Anzio during my time from 1939 until demob in 1946.

Looking at the trouble-spots around the world, we often wonder if it was worth all the struggle and loneliness of not seeing Blighty and our loved ones for those six years.

I think that pigs will fly before the Government gives us any handout.
