The Quest for Hiraeth November 2013

In November 2013 I returned to Wales for two weeks specifically to see my family and to attend the Armistice Day Service in Mold with my late cousin, Colin, formerly of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers.
I dedicate this video to the memory of Colin and indeed to all my Haywood family.
I also express my gratitude to my good friend and old comrade at arms, Fred, for its production.

The Australian community is in for a world of long overdue pain. It is wholly its own fault for which I have nil sympathy.

Thanks indeed for the comment. I do agree that we badly need to 'clean out the swamp'. Trump certainly stirred those fetid waters.

I agree with the general thrust of your comments but the Australian community believes the governments can deliver without pain and there will be a lot of pain up ahead.

Nice job on the essay John, but regardless of his positions, Dutton is too much a cretin of the past, he also looks like the walking dead. We don't need more career politicians, we need a Trump.
