Corporal Danny Winters had his funeral on Friday.

I just wanted to stick this link on here and send my condolences to his family.
I knocked about with Danny during my last couple of years in the Corps at 45, He was in my memory the best run ashore oppo bar none and a hoofing kareoke partner.
Keep up the good work to all the boys out in the Ghan especially the lads in MMM.

Rest easy mucker.

I've just read this; http://www.stockportexpress.co.uk/news/s/1096284_violent_thugs_cash_in_after_hero_soldiers_funeral

THE family of fallen Royal Marine, Danny Winter, have blasted cowardly armed thugs who tried to cash in on the heroic soldier’s funeral.

A gang of three masked men struck at Marple Forces and Social Club, on Lime Kiln Lane, on Monday (February 9) just after midnight.

They repeatedly smashed club steward Al Stonall with a hammer before leaving him unconscious in the snow with blood gushing from his head.

Both the club and Danny’s family are convinced the gang deliberately targeted the club just two days after it hosted his wake in the hope of making off with takings from the hundreds of mourners.

Danny’s mum Carolyn Hughes and step-dad Jez Arthur said: "We think it is deplorable. It was the wake for such a brave man and a fitting tribute for a man who laid his life down.

"So for a bunch of cowards to go up and take the money is disgusting. It has left a sour taste in the mouth because the steward had done so much for us, the staff up there were excellent.

"If anyone knows anything we would appeal for them to come forward because Danny put his life on the line for people to be decent and upstanding."
Bloody sickening.

It makes you sick thinking of our finest losing their lives so scum can roam free to do this sort of thing.

You only have to watch Crime Watch to see the scum perpetrating these crimes are from the very countries our lads and lasses are fighting in.

Sorry - Rant over.
