Unlike Fairygirl no one has to be rescude from a Hampshire heath?
Chicky well for two weeks whilst stationed in Bordon we were on that heath rescuing people from fire. The fires would creep underground then suddenly burst out, we had to get people out fast as the winds fanned the fires. They were on all parts of the heath, we would be dropped off and digging fire breaks then it would be behind us. We slept were we could, ate when the cook wagon got to us or else wonderful people fed us. I learned to fear fire and also it was unstoppable in some cases, one minute all calm next the mouth of hell.
there is always some danger Chicky.
