Remember the war? Reader shoots down Independent splash headline on woe of being 18

A reader has answered the question put in the Independent's splash headline on Monday: "Who would want to be 18 today?"
Peter Newton, of Honington, Suffolk, responds on the Independent's letters pages: "Who would want to be 18 today?" (16 August) the answer is "I would!" If you had been 18 in 1942, as I was, you would not even think of asking such a question. Cannot you sometimes be a bit more positive?"
