    Just discovered amongst my War papers, the Menu of the last 'Special' Dinner attended in the Second World War when I was at GHQ Rhine Army.

    Thought of all the RAC and Recce Corps participants who contribute to the Forum and cannot wait until the next 20th November (for obvious reasons) and decided now is the time to pass on my admiration as an infantryman to those valiant men who served in both the Royal Armoured Corps and the Reconnaissance Corps.

    Still have an extra "TOT" on November 20th to remember all the lads who didn't make it…

    As an ex-RAC man I am happy to reciprocate your fraternal good wishes by saying that as a tankie I and my comrades always had the utmost respect for the infantry men our Kangaroos carried into battle.

    Best regards

    I am sure I ate my way through the Menu, but I wish I could remember the dish Flail Flan!

    I too served in the Royal Armoured Corps and my great uncle Trevor was was killed at Flesquieres Hill Cambrai whilst serving with 'G'Battalion on 20th November 1917. I am pleased that the Tankie's are being remembered for the sacrifice they all made.

    The worst job we ever had to do was dismount and act like Infantry- fighting in Tanks was peanuts by comparison…..
