  1. Is Joan in the hands of Tupperware now?
    She quipped: "I've had so much plastic surgery, when I die they will donate my body to Tupperware."
    All I can tell, this lady had humour!

    1. No problem.

      Rees is certainly more inspiring than Walker! If you're interested, go the the Telegraph obits page, there was at least one Colditz 'old boy' there at the moment.
