    The attendance of Ambassador Renato Carlos Sersale di Cerisamo at this funeral is a very welcome gesture which we should all applaud.

    there's a documentary called “Falklands Combat Medics” that, roughly, outlined the activities of Surgeon Captain Rick Jolly during the Falklands War. Captain Jolly's actions should surprise no-one as they were mirrored by all the members of the British medical team. And those actions were, as they say, in the best traditions of the British armed forces. For anyone interested, it may be worth searching to find out whether the documentary can be obtained. It's worth watching.

    @PH Just click that “report abuse” button on Hepatia / whatever name they are using today. It saves so much time rather than arguing with them.
