Nijmegan Marches

#1
A certain Submarine was entering a team into Nijmegan this year which i was part of. This is the first time a boat has ever entered a team and the lads have put in a lot of effort with training and getting us all ready to go. We had to qualify at RAF Cosford which we had to march 50 miles in 2 days. We took the land sponsored trophy which was for the best Army team. We were the smartest team there by far and we felt really proud to of completed it and was looking forward to the big one in Nijmegan. The other day we had a team meeting and was told that we would not be going because the Army had put us on the reserve list. The whole team is gutted as we know we are better than any of them and we all feel well seen off. We think this has been done out of spite. Thanks alot pongos.

Would it be possible to fill us in with more details, including you boat's name? The reason for asking is that those of us who are long ago retired are in a position to write to our MPs about this. It may to too late to help this year but it may ensure that this situation does not repeat itself! Then there is the press...
