The Germans are on our side.
A step towards reparation? And don't mention ze vor!
I thought their reparations were the substantial land clearing work in London undertaken by H W Goering & Co's fly-by-night operation!
Only visited Germany once , '72 on Fife we pulled into Wilhemshaven for 4 days. Dockyard was absolutely spotless with patches of green and trees everywhere , dockyard maties in smart ovies and looking into some of the workshops they were busy working.
Culture shock for you?
It may have been a revelation.
Q "How many people work in Portsmouth Naval Base?"
A "About half of them".
Went to Wilhelmshaven too. All I remember about it is they gave every member of the ships company a bottle of rum. Which I still have incidentally.
???? What was wrong with it?
He's only got the bottle. The contents went long ago.
For this lady the new year looks good.
Back to the germans, in Germany if you put on Overalls you are looked on quite differently, in England you are a dirty oily oik ,and progressive governments have made mess of the Apprenticeship scheme, you can now be an apprentice Barista, and dont start me on about the scrapping of the Tiffy/Mechanician/Sultan. Rant over.
