    Be who you are and say what you feel...
    Because those that matter, don't mind.
    And those that mind, don't matter!

    There was one guy from the medical world who, if he couldn't get the kit, improvised and saved a lot of burns victims and major wounds injured. He was slated by the powers to be (civilians) as this was not the way we did things (on civvy street)" but I wasn't on civvy street" said he," I was in the middle of battle, operating in a sheep shed with the enemy trying to stop operation with bombs and bullets not red-tape and staffing problems". His innovative ways are now used regularly by the NHS and all he received in way of thanks was to be shunned and his ideas passed over to professors in nice clinical theatres. The surgeons name? Rick Jolly.

    I heard that any wounded personnel who made it as far as Rick Jolly's shed survived.

    Rick Jolly has gone down into the history books as a fine, dedicated and skilled Surgeon to whom many owe their survival. He is also a good spokesman for servicemen & women. As for the tossers who criticised his methods...who ever heard of them again?

    He's far to much a gentleman to even worry about them who knocked him. "I was there to save the lives of young fit healthy servicemen not worry about what people thought or said about me". That sums it up!
