    jagdpanther44 just added the third continent to our Forces Postal Service. Coming from the gorgeous beaches of Mauritius, he sends a message sure to engender envy in all forumites. This one is going to be tough to match.

    But what it doesn't have is - militaria !

    Poor old John - I just know he'll be desperate to get back to the UK ; what's a bit of sunshine when you can enjoy queuing outside a Fair in crisp, bracing Winter weather...?

    Blimey that postcard took long enough to reach you. I've been back home for over a month now!

    My wife and I had a fantastic holiday on the island of Mauritius, even if there weren't any places of WW2 relevance to see. :grumble:

    Believe me when I say that my Budgie Smuggling swimming trunk days were well and truly over many years ago. These days it's just plain old swim shorts. :D

    The majority of the locals on Mauritius are of Hindu faith and, as most of you will already know, the swastika is an ancient sacred symbol in their religion.
