Lest the snowflakes forget

Those colour photographs in yesterday’s Mail of British soldiers on the Western Front during World War I were haunting.

The young men in the pictures were our grandfathers, our great-grandfathers, many of whom would never return. Yet in the film restored by Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson they appear jaunty and ebullient in the face of the dangers ahead.

It may well have been bravado, but contrast their good humour with today’s self-obsessed snowflakes, roughly the same age as the soldiers who served and died at the Somme.

Shamefully, the students’ union at Cambridge is trying to wreck plans to commemorate the sacrifice of those who fought in World War I, banning poppies and the traditional one minute’s silence. Spoilt millennials appear to have nothing but contempt for earlier generations who gave their lives to ensure our modern freedoms.

These pathetic, right-on, playground radicals should study those photographs from the front line and be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.

Heaven help us if we are ever called upon to fight another world war.

Sad story from my next door neighbour.His uncle went right through the 1 st WW and was due on the ship to sail home.They asked for volunteers to dig graves. He volunteered and whilst digging hit on a unexploded shell. Result is he was buried in the that cemetery weeks after the war ended.

Re: Lest the snowflakes forget

Many young men who died or were injured in that dreadful war had no idea why they were there , nor where they actually were .

Many were pressurised by a populace that used every shaming trick , from white feathers , lists of non serving men posted in public places without any note of their reasons for not serving .

Many of these poor lads were conned into the " pals " brigades where whole villages were denuded of young men , by conscription roadshows full or fife and drum and a " all be over in 6 weeks " lies .

Hundreds of men were shot at " dawn " on the order of their command , this was well known in the ranks , many were terrified and suffering severe trauma but still they were ordered over the top for up to 80,000 a day to die for king and country ,

Denigrating the young with trite " snowflake " labels is nothing more or less than juvenile carping , fit for the playground .

No one knows how the generation would respond in time of emergency or call to serve their country , least of all those in the ivory towers of the Cayman Isle domiciled Daily Mail propagandists who do not even pay income tax to the UK .

Theirs is the greatest betrayal , offshore tax and investment arrangements , starving the country of it's due .

Shaming and shameful , one thing for sure another con of the public into fightin political wars will never happen again , the internet has put paid to that .

there is no glory in war , no glory in the young giving their blood , limbs and life .

As for banning poppies , untrue completely made up by the papers .

Re: Lest the snowflakes forget

Over excited gammons with too much time on their hands seeing issues that aren't even there

It does however explain how Leave got their vote............
