Dressing up for ‘D Day’!
Posted by Big John on June 10, 2014
When I was a young kid towards the end of World War 2, it was quite normal, on seeing an American serviceman, to shout … “Got any gum, chum?”.
Now President Obama has come in for some ‘stick’ for chewing gum at the recent D Day Commemoration ceremonies in Normandy.
No problem here ! … as most of those brave GI’s would have been doing the same as they stormed ashore on those bloody beaches.
At least he didn’t turn up dressed as a general on one day and as an admiral on another, as our Charlie did, to stand in front of British veterans, with his chest full of ‘Mickey Mouse’ medals given to him by his mum …
… Need I say more ?
