@Minivanman We don't regret having visited " Wipers" in 2000 - definitely something eerie about the place and SWMBO wouldn't get out of the car at Menin arch.
Back in 1954/55 I was stationed at REME workshop in Colchester and worked with civvies in the instrument repair section. One had lost a leg at Flanders and had tin replacement and another had been gassed. Neither talked about it much.
Best not mention Roy James who also worked there and made my mum a broach.
