    I believe New Zealand got whacked when Australia did too.

    England threw NZ and Oz in to block a few punches so they could get in a stiff uppercut and take the credit for the move

    Well done Barefoot, that is exactly how my grand fathers remembered it.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I'll be taking a look around France and Belgium in May. Checking out Passchendaele, Messines Ridge, attending last post at Menin Gate in Ypres which is observed every evening. We have a Great Uncles grave to find in Bancourt. Really looking forward to the visit, good enough to miss Opening Weekend for.

    In Flanders Field
    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.


    John McCrae
    ...amitie, respect mutuel et amour...

    ...le beau et le bon, cela rime avec Breton!...
