I like @RAFairman – an enthusiastic and very friendly tweeter. He is training ready to deploy to Afghanistan in a Joint Organisation with the Army in 2011. A pleasure to host his piece – but I have extracted only the first paragraphs because I would like you to go to his blog to read the rest of it!
It’s Remembrance Day. At 11 am on the 11th Day of the 11th Month we come together to remember the fallen of all wars.
Today, as I am working with the Army right now we paraded in the local church for a short service of Remembrance. And of course during this service there was the two minutes silence. And during this I remembered.
I come from a military family, I am a third generation serviceman. Myself and my brother are/were in the RAF, my dad served in the RAF and my Grandfather served in the Army. And he served in the First World War. Fortunately he made it through the war, but died in 1956, years before I was ever born…
And, on 11th November Oedipus Lex was a guest on my blog with a strong piece of writing.
