Land of the Flat Water
When someone was about to say "People who live in glass houses.."
someone else would quickly respond "should not undress in the

Each grade number corresponded with the year in the fifties.
lst in 51, and so forth.

Yep - I was the other end of the War - just after it started, so you can't blame me!
