Hope yo all allow me as a para and Afgan veteran to extent my congratulation to :
Lance Corporal Josh Leakey awarded VC for valour. The actions of the PARA who singlehandedly prevented considerable loss of life during an assault into a Taliban stronghold in Afghanistan have been recognised with the highest military honour. Read the full story:http://bit.ly/1AN7Ijcpu
Man you made me proud of serving with such men in my military life.
Embrace the wind.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Hear, hear! And one of a handful who earned the VC without dying in the process.

I do love your sense of humour. They wouldn't have me cos I'd hang em all, especially the speeders!

Yep hear, hear! Saw it on the news and was quite moved to a little tear or two when he was given that big hug.
