Many thanks Sammy,
I shall be sure to pay my respects to our 14/20th fallen comrades and those who's names are only burned in our fragile memories having found no piece of stone worthy of carrying their names.
Having served under five cap badges and having had several attachments it will be a busy and moving day.
thanks also for the offer of bash down Deansgate, not been there for a camel's age, but my location and timings are unfortunately not compatible. Do give my best to all who are able to make it, who knows, one day, one day.
