Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Today's news, yesterday's fathers.

404 lives


From Queensbury it is 4 miles to Bradford
4 miles to Halifax
0 in between but failure.
404 lives to quell the need for revenge.

Four the rest of my life I will remember.
Naught but the loss and the heartache.
Four the rest of their lives Dad is gone.

Fore most in my mind is the sacrifice,
Naught after all is achieved.
For when I think of them, I weep.

You all know the story of Yorkshiremen loosing their lives yesterday, along with that most courageous Lancastrian.
I don't expect much review, as it is a common occurrence.
Along with any American or other coalition soldier for whom
I feel deeply.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
