    Cinders, thanks Mate for the wiki link. I didn't know that the balloons actually got as far east in the USAicon as Kansas. That is significant.

    Gil, I'm with you - Thank God they didn't. I'm surprised they didn't since the Japaneseicon had been using POWs as human guinea pigs at their bio-chemical warfare lab in Manchuria.

    Paul,
    I respect them as a nation, but they have always been to anal for me. If you have been as many times as I have, you will understand what I mean.
    Everything has to be so "regimented and to the exact time" even their trains. The last time I was there they "profusely" apoligised for being 2 seconds late on the platform, where the train doors stop exactly on the marks.
    So in short, I think it was an absolute miracle, we in the west did not find ourselves at the end of one of their surprises!! which could have meant surrender

    'Tonight my men and I have been through hell and back again, but the look on your faces when we let you out of the hall - we'd do it all again tomorrow.' Major Chris Keeble's words to Goose Green villagers on 29th May 1982 - 2 PARA
