you mean you surrender?
do You really wanna dig as deep into me as to resurface my military spell at the fascist bunch of the Folgore?
Interestingly, for me, the Folgore was an Italian destroyer in WW II - the lead ship in a class of four vessels (Folgore, Balino, Fulmine and Lampo), all of which were sunk in that conflict.
Beautiful looking, elegant warships.
sorry for keep You waiting.
I think You mean "The Battle of Skerki Bank" where You Brit lot taught us a lesson or two on what is like being the ruling Nation of the seven seas. I also think it was one of those occasions where we flew the flag with decent dignity, as generally accorded with our little Navy best tradition in that pantomime of war from our fascist side.
If You entertain a little bond with one of those superbly trained of Your British Guys, you may be confirmed that the little military respect we still, somehow, hold among international professionals, largely belong to the traditions carried on by those guyshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paratroop ... de_Folgore
unfortunately, they also carry on with a steady nasty obsession with the most fascists tradition (should have saw my dad face when I announced I signed to serve my draft there! a typical youthish overflown of testosterone)
Overall, as much as I love to share our mutual interest on historical talks, I would strongly suggest to spin it off to Danny's off topic section, before a few livers start to implode and jump on "my usual desire for hacking any football"
thread with personal, irrelevant comments.
