What a strange last three months this has been what with the Lockdown and all its effects on our day to day life and not forgetting those who have lost their lives to this horrid disease that has become a plague of biblical magnitude around the world. We’ve had anniversaries come and go and although we were able to celebrate, it wasn’t quite the same as our “normal” everyday life would allow. We have all had to make sacrifices and some more than others. In the UK we have had a fantastic response from our health service and today at 5pm we shall salute these front line workers with a nationwide applause and rightly so. But it ain’t over yet and the threat of a second wave is very real plus the number of people now coming out of lockdown only to face the reality of losing their jobs due to businesses closing or empty order books.
We are not alone here in the UK and the effects of this pandemic are being felt across the World, so I say to all of you stay safe, hang on in there and keep the faith as one day all this will be bad dream.
As for the collecting, well things have been a bit slow to say the least and I do look forward to the day when I can travel to various militaria shows again and meet up with some old friends but as to when that will be….who knows?
