I thought the anniversary event held in Portsmouth yesterday was excellent.The VIPs(inc the QUEEN)made sure that they were not centre stage and allowed that honour to rightly go to the "Veterans".Made me proud to be British.
There was one veteran being interviewed who denied being a hero. "Those who didn't come back were the heroes." he said. He probably feels guilty for not being killed and has lived with that for 75 years. It makes today's problems seem rather petty.
