    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    You're unlikely to either. They are a little high brow and thus below the intellect of the average OR.

        Hi HH,
        That's the problem.He's only an Airman. No power whatsoever. He's out on his "21" in a fairly short time and his replacement as the Curator of the Don's Museum is not in sight. It'd be a serious shame if he is not replaced...
        regards

              Its a pity that more of the curators of some of the smaller colllections are not given more recognition..kudos to one here in particular as these guys are a fountain of knowledge with access to some great items.

                    It's quite acadamic in its promotion of the study of Irish military history. (That's probably the main reason I'm not a regular member.)

                    You should have a read of their publication 'The Irish Sword' found in most good bookshops.

                    I believe officers are ordinary people too

                        Id say theyre the ones doin the typing and that, or could they be trusted!?

                        Atleast theres an RDF Officer in there, that counts for something!

                        Must i have a title/decoration/membership of an order to join such an organisation?
