The Last of the Few

By johnriley1uk  
There are few WWII aircrew left, so seeing several at Elvington was a definite bonus. They had stories to tell, and it's a reminder that so many made such awesome sacrifices so that we could be free today.

All the sacrifices which were made by people such as this who fought for our sovereignty and our freedom, and successive governments since MacMillan have been giving it all away to a European Project/EU. No, I'm not doing politics, just stating a fact, inspired by this fine picture.

This is a very fine image, well composed with many components---It is the main portrait that tells the greatest story, but the accompanying "parts" complete the picture well!

Much as it has gone off track at times, the European project, which Winston Churchill supported, was intended to make the world safer from more wars.

And it was a combined effort, by all the nations, fighting an evil within one or two nations. My father and uncle served during the War, and I do not think that either of them would have welcomed the division and hatred that is happening (and not only in the UK).

Though both would have been distressed by the bureaucracy that makes heavy weather of everything, and which the British excel...

Maybe if we can unite in our admiration of those who made the world better, and their extraordinary courage and persistence, thinking of a bigger 'we' rather than 'us' and them'...
