    Lest we forget! the more time passes the more WWII fades into the distance. Young people nowadays are not interested at all and not enough is done to make them interested. In Malta for example, the most important airfield in WWII has been turned into all sorts of activities and the cry by the aviation museum to at least leave the last stretch available for flying falls on deaf ears. i can just imagine what the people in Britain would do if they turned Biggin Hill for example into a family park. We do not appreciate anything!
