My paternal grandfather, being an Austrian, was not living in an allied (with Britain) country during the First World War. My father, being five years old in 1918, probably only had an opinion in so much as the part of Austria that was his home was given to "victorious" Italy and the family moved lock, stock and barrel across the country to start life anew. My father then became a refugee in 1938, his parents having been murdered by the Gestapo and he himself imprisoned as an anti-Nazi, joined the British army as soon as possible and fought for the duration.

I am bored to tears by cricket and football, if anything, would rather Wales than anyone won the rugby and find the waving of the Union flag or St George's cross crass in the extreme. As a child I was just as pleased when Germany or Italy won the Nations Cup in showjumping as England and have had no reason to change my mind since. I love Elgar, George Butterworth, Benjamin Britten the English and Welsh countryside and am a Russophile.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it Norman.
