Watched the medias take on his life last night. About 4 hours I reckon .. means he is/was considered an important bloke.
He opened Melbourne Olympics and visited Australia more than 20 times. Reckon he like this place. Vale Philip Mountbatten (aka) Prince Philip.
Hope The Queen is doing okay
. she must have been very aware of her hubbys condition.
Ah well ... such is life .. or death!

All a bit sad this. All those years, where, in the R.A.N, we always 'Dressed Ship' on our birthday. I doubt whether they will carry it on just for my benefit. Never mind. It was nice while it lasted.

The end of an era.
