Stories and anecdotes from part of my life in 2 British police forces, years in saddles of motorcycles - and other places I've blundered into ©
"You're in our thoughts"Yup
It is amazing how that conflict touches all of us. I have a brother-in-law out there regularly and this week the Polish plumber, who is in doing a grand job in giving us a well overdue new bathroom, has his son returning shortly, to his obvious relief, from a stint out there in the equivalent of the Polish SAS.Brave men and women - all.
My Nephew is out there on deployment, I am just keeping my fingers crossed as he is a driver with the logistics... and I can't help but be worried... for them all
The finest that we still have to offer.God bless 'em all!
Noddy, Blue, Sage and Dickiebo: Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I echo Noddy's sentiments; something of the `Six degrees of separation` about this.Dickiebo: True. When I went to see him during their infantry training at Catterick I couldn't help but think how young and gutsy they were. I recalled some of the off-duty antics I had to jump on during my time in the job, especially the first `run ashore`, post Falklands! We all cut them loads of slack then and it remains much deserved.I'll be writing to him. If I get anything back I'll post it up, but our guy isn't one for in-depth communication.
