We should all do our bit!

Appreciated. Fingers crossed I manage to sort many more meetings.

I've been recording the audio of our conversations, so they can be stored on both a computer and mobile phone.

That's an interesting idea that I will keep in mind.

I've still only met three veterans since starting to work on this. I've put out various feelers some of which might come to fruition in the next couple of months.

If anyone reading this knows of anyone, please do let me know.

Bump for anyone else who might be interested in following the project.

First couple of posts are now up.

She's done that too now for when she next goes there. Have you read the others in the series?

The Shadow of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, at my girlfriend's request.

The writing is brilliant, though I'm not fully following the story, but I guess that's what happens when you choose to read before sleeping. I'll probably read it again once I finish.

Would recommend.

There are perhaps just under 500,000 left worldwide of all those who served. Of course many of those 500,000 are incredibly frail, and hundreds are dying every day.

One of the chaps I met a few days ago will be 100 in a few weeks and looked and sounded about 20 years younger.

Ever since I met the D-Day veteran from Haverhill I've wanted to meet more of those who served. The stories I've heard so far are fascinating.

Haven't watched it yet but I've got it on record!

Good idea. I'll change it on here. The avatar you are looking for says 'VETERANS PROJECT 1939 - 1945' on a khaki green background.

I've just created a new Instagram page @veterans_project where I intend to share the stories of as many Second World War veterans as I am able to locate and arrange meetings with.

I've so far carried out three such meetings and I will begin to post about these soon.

If anyone is interested in following the project then please head over and follow the page.

5 or 6, younger, top Championship level standard signings, who will either be able to step up a level with KMc's coaching, or help us to be next season's 'Leicester' should we go back down.

Plus a couple of older players with Prem experience.

Sarmiento and Hutchinson on loan.

For those unable to attend tomorrow...

Seriously debating standing somewhere on one of the busy approaches to the ground with a sign asking if anyone has a spare ticket.

Worst case: I look silly but people forget about me 30 seconds later, and I don't get a ticket.

Best case: I get a ticket.

I was thinking about doing this! Might look a lemon but you've got to do what's necessary.

Is tomorrow (or any next resale; I'm not sure whether 'tomorrow' is official) only for people who are both members and have purchased two or more tickets this season?

I'm not a member so I wouldn't qualify if so and would need to find someone else to try to help.

Does anyone reckon there will be any point in getting to the ticket office early on the day on the chance that any tickets have been returned would then now be available?

Also to purchase directly through their website you need a purchasing history, as I found out a couple of days ago.
