Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round Up – November 7th – 13th 2022 – Remembrance,1940s hits, Tony Bennett, Foods ‘K’, Far East 1946, Podcast, Book Reviews, Health and Humour


Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.

I hope you have had a great week. I know that some of you in Florida and adjacent states have been in the path of the latest hurricane and that caused extensive damage along the coast. Hopefully you have not suffered too much damage and that there is some respite from the weather fronts. We have had extremely high winds and torrential rain this week but we are lucky to only get the tail ends of the big storms across the Atlantic here on the East Coast, whilst those in the West of Ireland get the brunt of them.

The annual remembrance services have been held this week in the UK on November 11th and today with Rembembrance Sunday. Around the world veterans and those who did not return are remembered at different times of the year. My post this year is a tribute to an extraordinary marine who I was honoured to interview a few years ago. His story and those of the many thousands of wounded servicemen and women is one that needs to be told and thankfully there are some amazing charities who support them as they face the challenges of returning home with life changing injuries of the body and mind.

Remembrance Sunday and Veterans Day – For those who died and those that returned
