As a very young child I used to believe that the Army, Air force and Navy all fought each other for a living. One day while visiting an Air Force base, I was shocked to see a lady wearing fatigues, I assumed she was in the Army, and I expected some of the Airmen wearing blue to attack her.

After the Gulf War, I thought that wars were regularly occuring events, like the Olympics or something. I remember asking my mom, "When is the next war?" like it was already planned out.

I used to believe that during the war and before that, that TV and cameras hadn't been invented and I used to be confused when I saw photos of Hitler. I have no idea why.

I was young during Desert Storm, but I still remember hearing the the newscasters talking about Saddam Hussein... only I thought they always said "Saddam, who's saying.."

I used to believe that wars lasted for five minutes and can remember, age 5 or 6, being totally shocked when I realised that they could last for years and years.

i used to think that wars began with a bunch of guys lining up for two teams and that each side would chose one at a time, like sports, and that brothers would kill each other if chosen by opposite sides. also every one would only attack when news cameras were there.

I used to believe that wars were spectator events, held in front of audiences sitting in bleachers. When it was time for someone to die, they'd randomly choose a seat number and then you'd walk out to the field and be shot or decapitated or something. Weird.

I was about 9 when the Gulf War started. I remember thinking that it was a really stupid war because I believed that it had been started after a leader of a country (can't remember if I thought it was USA or Iraq or UK) had lost a game of golf with the other leaders!! I still think war is stupid though......

When I was about 6 or 7 in around 1977 I always thought that everyone over the age of 20 had been involved in the Second World War and would often ask my parent's friends if they had ever killed a German.

I thought the Falklands war was taking place down the road. We lived in Wheatlands, down the road was Pennylands. Naturally Falklands must be next to that.

Way back when, I thought that the Second World War was decided on a football match between England and Germany. Of course, it wasn't.
