100 years ago tomorrow, the First World War ended with an
armistice. On November 11th, we recall and the honour those who
died for us in that war, and in all wars before and since. Here's
what I wrote some years ago:

I know I'm being picky picky, Walt, and mean no offence what so ever
:-) ... but, why, when discussing Red, Green and Blue, do you U.S.
of A.'ians call them "colors" rather than "colours" (as a large part
of the rest of the world does) but, here, (correctly) refer to the
"honour" that is bestowed on those who fought??

      It was Wolf, not Walt, who wrote that, and he (Wolf) is Canadian.

                                         Ken Whiton

Ah!! Well spotted, Ken!! My mistake probably explains why "honour" was used!! ;-(

Do I see any 'W' attached to the "Sender" in this group to mean "WaltS48" has made the post??
