The Portsmouth News has been carrying stories about the Falklands 25th anniversary. FVF applied to the Lottery fund for monies to help build a refuge in the Falklands, but they were refused. However the Lottery fund has granted Â£346,000 to The Portsmouth Counselling Service, which helps asylum seekers and other foreign nationals settling in the city. Mr Plank (Twigg) was in Gosport today to open a new section of the Armed Services Personnel and Veterans Pay, Pensions and Medals office. He wouldn't talk to the local press or even acknowledge the actions of the three services twenty five years ago. He did however receive from Dusty Cole an application for funds from MoDs Veterans Challenge Fund. Let's hope it is successful. But IMHO the man is a cretin. Semper Strenuissima.
