I tried, I really tried.

A couple of weeks ago, while watching Atlantic Convoys on Channel Four, I found myself distracted by a beard and ended up thinking about Captain Haddock.  I have subsequently given this some thought and have come to realise that this wasn't entirely appropriate and that I needed to watch this fascinating series a  little more respectfully.  The heroism displayed - on both sides -  in the Atlantic during World War II is both unimaginable and inspirational; I was doing those brave men a disservice.

Having admonished myself I settled down to watch this week's episode more reverently, and dutifully.  Then this happened.
