Thread: Giving back to those who gave so much...

    Giving back to those who gave so much...

    A picture of a group of Royal Marine Veteran's after a cheque presentation, it was taken just after luncheon which is put on by Peter Theobald and his wife Fran.

    The cheque was for 112.00 raised by my wildfowling club, last year the club was looking for a new dog training area, I asked Peter if we could use one of his fields " help your self was the answer"

    The gentleman with the sticks is 94 and bright as a button, there was a moment when the photographer asked the group to move back...
    I said to him ( so all could here) Chris!! Royal Marines don't go backwards!! Only forwards!!

    With that there was a big cheer and stick waving....!! Two other members joined me with the presentation which went very well...

    They all filled back into the other room for tea and I would guess a nip of something...

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    Well done Tim,

    We had a funeral of a ex serviceman who had no living family members that we could find, so my niece's husband Steve in Doncaster posted a wanted add for some people to turn up at his send off,

    There was about 150 people from all walks of life turned up to the service and some very nice donations where made, so a big thanks to you and to my niece's fella Steve,

    Well done both

    Bob.
