Nice to know you t-man!
I did sort of the opposite only earlier. Born in the US but lived in 'Blighty from 1981- 96 (not military) before coming back to the US, mainly for the dosh (which could still be made, at the time)
You know what they say about England,... you curse it while you are there but miss it when you are away.
However the folks I know (still there) tell me to definitely stay away! smile
