Kirsty with her contacts with F Company managed to borrow a bearskin as they wanted to see me in one, so here I am!!
As Harry Belafonte crooned “ I am sad to say, I am on my way, wont be back for many a day”. I leave the Charity in 10 days time so the festivities started to day at a lunch in the Guards Museum, somewhere I know well. I was kindly presented by the trustees this amusing cartoon which shows me jumping a fence at Cheltenham or somewhere on an unknown horse. Mr Stitch says it certainly isn’t him!!
Tremendous to see the Soldiers’ Charity poster back up on Waterloo Station. This is part of the marketing for the Soldiers Challenge due to take place on sat 19 May when we hope to have 2000 young supporters careering round London in aid of the charity. The poster which is enormous will remain there throughout March, April and May.
