    Re: decade

    Could it be that "Ra" is an acronym for Regular Army?

    The 1920s

    Armistice was signed on 11 November 1918. With the end of the First World War, a new era of peace and prosperity was envisaged. Most people had high expectations of the 1920 and although the decade did not turn out to be as idyllic as they hoped, definite improvements were made in areas such as health, education and the standard of living.
