    Royal Marine George 'Sparky' Sparks

    I read it this morning in the hard copy Telegraph. Some bastard was smoking nearby.

    The article does the Corps, the author and Marine Sparks proud. Georgie will be the second Marine Sparks to pass into Corps legend.

    Was not the first one a 'Cockleshell Hero'?
  4. Chris Terril is a true friend of the RM and a deserved honoury wearer of the green lid who has stood side by side with the lads in Afghan.
    Im so glad he wrote this fantastic article for his friend Georgie Sparks.
    Another fine Mairine who makes me proud to say I once was a serving bootneck just like him.

    Rest Royal.
