    It is during these few days that we particularly remember families that we had the privilege of serving at this time last year. All had military connections, and so please hold in your thoughts the familes of;

    Shaun "Chalkie" Elliot RM Ret'd
    Michelle Hewitt RN
    Capt. Carl Manley RM

    They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old.
