    We used to do close protection on that floor to prevent him being sprung by neo-nazis. A company of infantry did the external perimeter cordon. This also meant escorting him when he exercised on the hospital roof, which had a 12 ft chain link fence all round the edge of it to prevent him topping himself. given a choice I'd have let the shite jump. He never renounced anything the bastards did and still revered Adolf till the day he finally did manage to top himself!! complete cwnt with everyone he dealt with.

    Are you 100% sure he topped himself? There is a lot of info out there that suggests otherwise....

    Re: Where's your favourite ever place you've been

    I'm lucky enough to have visited some stunning places in the world and have just returned from a cruise where we called at two places which are up there with the best. Kotor being the first with the latter Kefelonia. Having said that Krabi in Thailand is the most fab place we have ever been to. i'll never have any money as all mine goes on seeing this fantastic planet........life's too short.

    Still on the bucket list is:

    Lots of places in Canada
    Hawaii
    Barbados
    West coast USA and parks
    Alaska

    and top is a return to Oz, having left there in 1977.

    One Day.................................

    Ive always had great times in Bangkok and never felt under threat except for a birthday trip a couple of years ago when I ended up in hospital but that was my fault

    The only areas I can think where visitors might feel in any danger are;
    Khaosan for yuppie backpackers getting ripped off by the locals and the not so locals

    And Nana when consuming too much beer could possibly lead to you making the biggest mistake of your life. Going back with a gorgeous girl to find out she has a pair of bollocks as well might be a life changing moment

    Symi is a very peaceful, tranquil place to sit and chill and watch the boats pass by. I was reading a book recently about the SAS and there was once a serious bit of fighting there which when you see it now would never be thought possible!

    Here is a bit about it on wiki - in the book it went into a lot more detail which was fascinating having been there and seen what a great place it is.

    Dowlais Top, near Merthyr, is a wondrous sight especially by moonlight.

    From a vantage point of the village's Spar shop one can admire a derelict public urinal and some abandoned tyres.

    Cheers Maccy. Wish I'd known more about the history of the place before visiting years ago.

    Put it this way, he had been trying and failing for years. When the Soviets took over the guard on Spandau they stripped everything out of his cell and left him with the bare things that his sentence dictated.

    The Brits let him have books radio stuff like that and he had a workshop like a man shed in the grounds. Lets be fair he had a whole fecking prison to himself.

    The yanks gave him anything he wanted and left him to his own devices apparently. I personally got the opinion theie average soldier had no real idea what he had been part of and how high up in the thing he was. But each time he had tried previously it was when the Americans were on guard duty. And so it was in the end. I believe he hanged himself with electrical flex but he shouldn't have been left alone long enough to get access to it.

    The French were just useless.

    you might think it was better to top him and someone did it, but his death raised a problem no one wanted, which was where to bury him without it becoming a shrine to Neo Nazis. It was a very serious consideration at the time.

    People always said the Soviets wanted to keep him alive so they had reason to station Armed troops in West Berlin, but that was plain bollox, the duty was as much a pain in the neck to them as it was to everyone else. It was the politicians driving it. And from my observations it was the Brits who wanted him alive the most!!

    It's funny, living in Toronto it's nice to see so many consider it their favourite place and it makes me thing I should explore my own city more. If I asked my Canadian wife she would say Cardiff / St Davids, I suppose we don't fully appreciate where we live sometimes!

    Re: Where's your favourite ever place you've been

    Been many stunning places in the world - including a number of those mentioned here - but if 'favourite' is measured in terms of happiness, relaxation and peace with the world then it has to be West Wales for me.
