One of Popski's lot eh? I think they ended the war in Venice, now there's a strategic objective. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

I still have my army bag (Balsak [Ball Bag] we called it) wrapped up in my garage. It's nearly 30 years old and is still as tough and gritty the day I received it.

Last year I opened it for the first time in millenia to find the old items and clothing. I gave these to the kids who then proceded to do the army thing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Makes you wonder what else the desert could be hiding...

Very interesting story... Must feel really strange reading mail from the past like that and too bad he past away before this came to light.

Thank's for posting

By the way... live in the states and no problem with video clip... used Real Player.
