And a Chess and Draughts Champion. A very good countryman and poacher no doubt, less said probably! He was the one who bought five grands worth of good scotch before going off to war. My Great grandfather managed to drink most of it on the basis that He was drunk most of the time and wasn’t expecting His Son to make it back, considering my Grandfather was in a POW camp. Snappy these ancestors can be.
I got my Horse whispering gene of Him.
My Grandfathers undying legacy to me is never get written off. There is always a way to survive the cruelest of encounters. My Paternal Grandfather told me all his War stories too and basically said the same thing interalia. He was the one building MTBs by WW2.
Anyway, people are resilient. They have homes to go to. If the EU can make their homes safe to live in they will seriously want to be back at home. If they don’t, you have to ask why?
