True Brit 3.
65 years ago today Guy Penrose Gibson v.c. led a raid into the heart of fascist Germany (note to liberals,these where real fascists...not Bush!) Using new technology in perilous circumstances a blow was dealt that further reduced the capacity of the Nazi regime to wage war...an earlier shock and awe if you will. Guy Gibson and his comrades fought without pause to keep the democratic west free and to free the conquered nations of Europe.Gibson owned, as many pilots did, a dog...the dog in reference to its colour was called nigger...a name from an earlier age without the negative connotations of today.We are lucky that people of that era just wanted to win the war and survive...today he would have been sent for numerous career killing cultural awareness courses,his crime outweighing his prowess as a warrior. Britain in its time of need has often produced such men and still does today.Guy Gibson did not survive to see freedom triumph.
