Can someone please explain why the RM Band concert in Merseyside, this Saturday, commemorating the end of the Falklands conflict needs to be in aid of charity?
The British public donated some £18M via the newspapers to help those & the families affected during & after the conflict. All the pay-outs were taken from the interest on those donations and the remainder was divided between the service & civilian charities. Twenty-five years later, the primary "customers" interested in attending this concert are those same people either involved or affected, so why are KGFS cashing-in on those that served during the conflict or their surviving families? It would be interesting to see how many "dignitaries" attend on a free ticket.

Fair call Davy, maybe you're right. Yes, I have a bee in my bonnet about it as all those chasing Honours are busy raising funds for charity from those that may need it. I'm probably out of order mate.
