Thank You SR.

I am not ashamed to admit that brought tears to my eyes!

Have linked.

It did me too WfW, that's why I struggled for ages to publish it. Sky don't make it easy.

Such loving care from the military. At least we still have one public service which knows the meaning of the word respect for your fellow man.

Brought a lump to an old cynics throat. Perhaps I'm not beyond redemption?

I should think few are beyond redemption after viewing that scunnert.

Rosie,

I hope this also answers the question you asked on my blog re the repatriation ceremony and regiments etc.

I feel that RAF Regiment Warrant Officer goes home at night with many a tear in his eye.

Yes it does LotF, thanks. I just came across it when briefly watching the news yesterday afternoon.

I would think it affects many but they get on with the job. No matter how well trained anyone is some must go home at night thinking 'There but for the grace of God go I'.

SR, I know that you publish this issue in what is now becoming a gastly regular slot. In the begining I commented on it but recently have remained silent as you know my views and I don't want to keep boring regulars with them. It does not mean that I do not care and frankly I'm pleased that you continue to post this as it acts as a reminder to us of the price demanded by the vain and being paid for by our sons and daughters - and their familes. Keep it up please because one day soon this bill will have to be paid and I don't want the families of the dead to think they are alone in their anger.

subrosa said...

Thanks Dram. I intend to continue to record every death and anything I find which would be of interest to me.

It's very difficult for families. You have to let your children live their lives their way and if they want to join the forces then a good parent wouldn't stand in their way. That's how I see it.

The grief they suffer, especially mothers and fathers, must be horrendous. It's bad enough someone dying a natural death other than being blown to pieces for the lie that they were protecting our streets. The lie angers me - all the time.

Indeed!
