In light of the tragic news once again of another Royal Marine killed yesterday in Afghanistan, categorically no apologies for "bumping" this thread.
All donations, however small, to this worthy cause are very much appreciated.
The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund
The RM Charitable Trust Fund exists to maintain the efficiency and 'esprit de corps' of the Royal Marines and to provide support for those in need. In addition to benevolence work, there are many other calls upon this fund. These range from the provision of wreaths for Remembrance services, support to veterans reunions and the RM Museum to the construction and maintenance of war memorials.
Many thanks Nobby on behalf of the charity, a very decent gesture.
I'm staggered the amount of support that is out there, the RM Charitable Trust Fund has reached 177% of the target for this particular venture set by Ian as you can see here: http://www.justgiving.com/ian-hardcastle0
The long haired Sarnt'major has banned me from contributing for a while, I'm sorry. Please pass on my regards.
