    Nice to see Jerry but sadly the RWF badge in a beret like that always reminds me of Feb '79 when Lt Kirby RWF was shot dead by a Republican terrorist gunman on Abercorn Road, Londonderry.

    It does help fortify the memory (which is good as the memories should be kept alive) and I thank you for that

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    I didn't serve for medical reasons, but remembering those who did, especially those who fell protecting our freedoms are two of the reasons I collect.

    I did try to enlist at age 15 into the junior leaders for which I was accepted, but becauae of deafness in one ear I was denied the opportunity to do my bit. The funny thing is I wanted to go into the welsh cavalry and probably would have lost it anyway....
