    Only just over 18 years until the 100th Anniversary of the outbreak of war for us in Europe.
    Sounds along way off but when I think I've been on here over 15 years it'll soon go by.

    I wonder what events will take place .
    I also wonder if I'll re-read this thread in 2039.

    To get through first ;-)

    I was thinking if they reboot Space 1999 - they could possibly do so as Space 2099 - ;-) as 2099 is starting to look not too far off now... :)

    By 2039 - there will have been lots of 100th anniversaries, as 1921-1939 was busy with conflicts. Perhaps not least the question of "when the second World War began" etc. And appeasement, peace in our time, and 20:20 visions in hindsight...

    MOD records will probably still need death certificate just in case there are any surviving 120 year old veterans out there.

    Maybe by then they will have made a dent on the backlog and got up to records ordered in 2021

    I'll only be 57. I'll make sure I take a tour of all your retirement homes to give you all first hand accounts of the commemorations........

    Twenty two years ago the Cardio Consultant gave me 20 years, I'm still here but don't expect to be in 2039.
    Nothing to be frightened of, many others have passed down the same road before.
