I have just watched the program and a thought came into my head ,Tony Foulds has been looking after the memorial all these years wouldn’t it be a fitting tribute to him when he passes away to have his ashes buried next to the memorial and a plaque put up for him as he has looked after the memorial all these years .It was a shame that the Newscaster Dan Walker couldn’t have been with Tony as he was the main instigator of arranging the fly past .
But what an amazing story I’ve followed this from the first meeting that Dan had with Tony and some more interesting things came out from the relatives that were interviewed .

Tony did say his ashes were going to be scattered around the memorial but you're quite right, Bob. A plaque should (and I'm sure will be) be placed there

Many thanks for posting that link Mick. The full 3 and a half minute footage of the flypasts on BBC’s Twitter account is very moving.

Lest we forget.

And maybe an MBE/OBE or something of recognition from the country - plenty of people do a lot less worthy things and get them...

I have fond memories of the early 1990s in Berlin, where a local strenuous-activity-related clothing company with the name "American Sports Shop" plastered its logo consisting of its abbreviated name prominently over the side of the building it was located in.

When I lived in Hong Kong this building was known ans "The Building of 1000 A** H***es"  Probably as it was the headquarters of the HK Tax authority.  :D

Getting back on topic, I am happy that I live in Tokyo and am able to access a wide range of Assy parts for my N scale trains.

Two and a half happy hours spent in A&E yesterday.
After exercise on Friday I did I My infrequent heart rate check by the traditional method, and discovered to my dismay that out of 70 beats in a minute I could only count about 60 of them. Lots of ‘missing’ beats in worrying pauses.
Obviously as I had never experienced this before I rather panicked at first, and repeated the testing over the next hour, with much the same results.
Call 111, get advise to go to A&E, but wait 20 minutes for call from A&E assessment team. Nice doctor called James talks me through, and suggests I leave my visit until Saturday morning - it was then 11pm and a visit to A&E on a Friday night is never a cheerful prospect and fraught with long delays.
Time for a near sleepless night despite James’s confident assertions that I need not worry.
Off to A&E, time for an ECG and blood tests and another nice doctor called Omar, who equally confidently tells me all is well with my heart and blood, and that these ‘ectopic’ heartbeats are very common and nothing to worry about in my case as my heart is functioning just fine.

So, I’m happy - if a little anxious still as I get my head around feeling those ‘missing beats’ when I check my pulse - and cutting down on caffeine and a few other minor lifestyle changes to see if they will eventually decrease.

Not all heart conditions are bad heart conditions. :no:

Phew! :)

Off now to Newark to the local Railway Modelling exhibition at the Showground, with a glad, and happy heart. :D

Glad it ended with a happy outcome Daffy.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Obviously not a nice experience for you Daffy, but a happy outcome. :thumbsup:
