: : A great deal is now out in the open of young footballers’ being sexual abused. The whole show I believe is a large can of worms waiting to burst open and expose those who are alleged to have been the abuser of young men. A very dear friend of mine on his death bed said how he had been abused at 17 ½ when we were stationed in Shorncliffe. I know who that abuser is.
: : To know as I do, how my dear friend suffered throughout his adult life and never telling anyone, until he lay on his death bed, he was in tears and he wanted to share this burden. I made a promise and I will keep that promise. It broke me and has made me very angry.

: Well said Tony, it is the most ghastly and horrifying experience that you could ever wish on your fellow man. Because of our very close comradeship and friendship as soldiers, we hear more about the problems that our fellows have suffered, but who really listens?
Quite often a good listener is better than a good talker.
