Welcome Home

Jamie and Ben
After six months we can rest a little easier now as my Brother-in-law has been in Afghanistan. Each and every time there has been bad news in Afghanistan over the past 6 months it has been a fraught time in the house as we wait to here what has happened.

Tomorrow we will welcome him back to RM Condor in Arbroath, but sadly not nine of his friends and colleagues who gave their lives serving our country. In addition there are a number of others who have been injured, some seriously, who we should not forget however hard this government tries to hide the true facts of the cost to our forces of the war in Afghanistan.

Please pass on mine and my family's grateful thanks to your brother-in-law for his service. And I would also add my condolences to all those family's who have lost loved ones or who have men who have been injured.

They will not be forgotten.

Bruv, if you had followed the link on the photo you would have seen it was a photo from 2 years ago. He didn't arrive back in the UK until the day after the post. He did have a good tan!
