Yes we do and it is a shame more of us don't know more about it.

Myself included. I could probably give you a more detailed account of ancient Rome or Egypt then I could of the first 100 years of this nation.

I try to learn what I can when I can but we need to change the way history is taught in this country.

And Go to your local War Museum everyone. These people fought and died so we could sit on our Duffs and argue hockey on a computer in peace. It is a great place to start learning about our rich tradition.
