    I would be interested in hearing from any Veterans on the topic of compensation for wounds and/or pension benefits.

    Nothing different about this...Kiplings poem come to mind - it's tommy this and tommy that - but when the mustard hits the punka - it's Mr Thomas please....... on my medical failure for recall at Korea and idiotically enquiring about a

    pension..I was met by a great deal of laughter from people who thought that an 88mm was some kind of ice cream.......but I am still profoundly deaf ..

    Cheers

    After the Korea episode I said to hell with them as I can manage but the Suez thingi finished me off and we took off for Canada- haven't regretted a day and managed six years University and an M.B.A. and became a Managing Director -

    my eldest son was also a Managing Director - he is now a management Consultant - my Daughter is also Managing Director of a Division of an Investment Bank in London - youngest son is doing research into Genetics - I asked him what that

    was all about and he said it was study of little things but I wouldn't understand it - so I still don't know what it is - but he has three months every year to get over finding too much cancer in children.....so we truly did manage

    Cheers

    - love to the saintly one
