    Eh lads, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini just signed a "Pact of Steel" in Berlin. Wonder what this is all about.

    Wouldn;t worry about it too much - sure they have to get past Britain to get to us.

    The failure of the Stresa Pact... maybe the Brits and French should have turned a blind eye to Italys invasion of Abyssinia. They didnt stop the invasion and have now pushed Italy into the German orbit.
    Or maybe they should have given the Italians a bloody nose. Might have made others sit up and take notice.

    Adolph isn't looking himself there.

    In the paper this morning Hitler says he wants to move into Poland. Thought he was finished after the Sudetenland shenanigans last year. Could be an interesting summer!

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!

    All this talk of war is ridiculous, France could finish Germany without any help from Britain or anyone else. If Hitler steps out of line, he will be crushed in a matter of months.

    (well 69 months anyway)

    A suspiciously precise prediction.
    Not so much crushing - more like erosion.

    P&T to combine the telephone and the wireless.



    Simply ground your portable telephone umbrella antenna, using any convenient lamppost, turn the handle and speak to the operator.

    You can even listen to your favourite musical record disc on demand.

    Remember to earth yourself properly to avoid risk of electrocution.

    Yeah, not even the Germans are mad enough to go after the Maginot Line, it's near invincible. Think that keep Germans at bay alright.

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!

    They are going to steal France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Yugoslavia, Albania and Greece.

    Funny though, since the Belgians have declared themselves neutral the French have suddenly realised that there is a rather large gap in their defences. The Maginot Line only goes to the Belgian Border. To be fair though, the impenetrable Ardennes should keep the German Army bottled up in time for the French army to mobilise.

    Hitler is an honourable man, he is NOT going to invade France. As for Poland, all he is requesting is a small bit of land to reunite Prussia with the rest of the Fatherland. AND i've heard that the Poles are persecuting Germans in the Danzig Corridor

    There's a film coming out called The Wizard of Oz. I think it's going to be a big hit.

    Stalin has a tough job considering how many of his closest aides have just disappeared off and left hm short handed.

    Both the US and Japan hate communism.

    If Stalin tries anything they'll kick him from behind you mark my words.

    Eddie and Wallis: Did you see the state of that brazen American hussy in the latest newsreel? Just who do the think they are jetting around the world like minor film stars? Will this be the end of the royal family and is it all her fault?

    The Emergency Thread I-XXV. Later to be followed by The Emergency Forum, which will bring us such highly debated threads as:

    To Gas Mask or Not to Gas Mask?
    Can we please have some fcuking control on fighter jets from high risk countries invading our airspace?
    Will the Brits ever piss off and stop asking for the use of our ports?
    Do ration coupon cheats cheat us all?
