Press on Regardless

Press on regardless: unofficial motto of RAF, meant to show "keenness" to fly through adversity to the target - often stupid advice. Many men died "pressing on regardless" of severe icing and "duff" engines and died because of it. Often used in an ironic way to show resignation to keeping on with a task no matter how ridiculous or unpleasant. Also used as an expression to "buck up" those who were depressed about something.

It is hoped that pressing on regardless may at some point lead to some blogging again!

The post on "Press on Regardless (POR)" by .THE CELLARER AT 23:33 was copied directly from a site about the RAF. This is discourteous at best and at least unethical. This should have been cited.
