SPB I think it was given to me so he would not be tempted after a few sherberts to crack it open so I dare not raffle it and Mrs F and I do our best where the RMBF is concerned. Having said that another one may be coming my way in a couple of months or so and it would be a cracking idea.

It is with sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that Marine James Robert Wright, from Juliet Company, 42 Commando Royal Marines, serving as part of Combined Force Nad 'Ali (North), was killed in Helmand province, southern Afghanistan on Friday 5 August 2011.
The financial value is utterly irrelevant and the Royal who gave it to me is not back yet along with many others and I do wish that you should have thought more carefully before submitting your post. :cry:
I am well aware of the latest tragic loss see 'In Memoriam'.
