Service personal were not demobbed for ages after the official ending of the war. Just checked dates the first official demob was 6 week after VE Day (18th June 1945) Personnel were still being processes a year later. Apparently 4.3 million were demobbed. But you still have conscription from 1946 to 1963.
You also have to add 48.000 Bevin Boys and 80.000 (Women's Land Army) and Lumber Jills. Never realised they were conscripted from 42 onwards.
Also 950.000 women worked in the munitions factories.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
