Naval nostalgia and insights

Here is a clip of an iconic boat from naval history, the MTB. I was not in the senior service, except as a junior reserve, but this video was an eye opener.


Another article that caught my eye …

There are two very unusual war graves in our village , both are doubles.

The first is father and son, with both being in the army and the son dying at something like sixteen (WW1 - training accident?), the father died in 1922 .
The second is also father and son, with the father being killed on an MTB, in 1942. Years later his son’s ashes were interred with his father, working back I saw the age of the son at the time of his father’s death as being five.
