Honoring the N.F.S.

    I guess that most of us in the US heard a bunch of 9/11 related songs on the air yesterday. One that struck me as very good celebrated the bravery of the firemen. That bravery has been celebrated in song and with plaques and statues; there is even a "commemorative painted figure" holding, for some reason, the U.S. flag.
    My dad was a firemen throughout WWII in a heavily bombed area close to Hastings in Sussex. He saw daily, dangerous duty for years, when he was in his forties, and a number of his mates in the NFS (National Fire Service) were killed or badly burned, but I have never heard a song about his and his mates' heroism, never seen a statue or even a figurine in their honor. It would be great if someone could make a WWII British fireman bust with a standpipe, bar and keys around the base. Thank you, and please put my name down for an advance order. ;)

    Thanks for the link Roger. I hope that they are on the Cannon St Station side, so that they can see the river.
