    Default The Atom Bomb

    With the conflict in the Ukraine at the present time, turn the clock back sixty years and the Cuban crises. American satirist Tom Lehrer recorded these two songs which are still appropriate today.

    My Uncle worked on the Atom bomb at one stage, during the second world war, no idea what he was doing. He had a police guard outside his house 24\7. He was wounded in the leg in the first war so it was surprising to me now that he would do that kind of work. My Aunt, his wife and my two cousins were killed by one of the biggest bombs dropped during the raids on Swansea. When he died the Queen sent a coach and four black horses to carry him to the cemetery, where only men were allowed to see him off, my Dad being one of them.

    Go out to Maralinga here in Oz, you can still see what is left of the testing site.
    It was abandoned after the testing and looks like a town would after the bomb had been dropped.
    Woomera is no different
    Happy daze John in Oz.
