InOBU BS: Well done the RAF & Navy (68* d) RE: BS: Well done the RAF & Navy 04 Mar 11


Hi Chris B:

We Quakers are not big on nations getting us out of trouble, we gennerally do rather well, as we are known for our good works in places the US and Britain have, well, been less than popular.

I agree, the US is not great at evacuations, remember Vietnam? I frankly backed the other horse in that particular race.

As to British evacuations, I seem to recall British soldiers fireing at the French trying to get into the boats at Dunkirk... and showing them their bow fingers... ah well...

But as far as being evacuated by the British... well... it was rather crowded on the boats when your lot left much of Ireland... so my family decided to stay awhile.
