    I’d have to look through my previous eBay records but I don’t think I’ve ever done a 100% sale, so I was always expecting charges to my account. I usually put 10% towards the RAFBF whenever I sell.

    Looking back at myself in teen years, I was just trying to get away from home and a one-job village. I was raised, as most of my generation, on a diet of British and Hollywood films about war and how glorious it was. Then the ads told us all about foreign places and I was sold. On reflection, I would say that actual military active service was about 95% boredom and 5% pants-filling fear. When one of your mates is killed or injured, you don’t think “I’m going to GET them!” as in the books and movies. You just think, for one split second, “Glad it’s him and not me!” and try to put a round or two in the ones trying to do that to you and all your other mates.

    Then you try to help, if you can. The uniform looks better without holes in it.
