Subject: RE: Greenfields of France parody...
Well, up to a point I agree with you, but....

If you read, for example, the Wipers Times, you get lots of jokes and parodies about WW1, some of it is very dark humour indeed and some of it is roaringly funny. The difference is that the guys who wrote it were part of the bloodbath and had every right to write whatever they wanted to.
We, on the other hand, owe them an unrepayable debt to these guys and to take the piss when we have cannot even begin to imagine the sufferings they went through is just a bit much for some of us.

Well, thats what I think anyway...
