To day I went to the London Scottish for the Veterans Aid AGM and this picture is of Jonathan Fullan and Hugh Milroy who runs Veterans Aid.  Jonathan was in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and served twice in Northern Ireland and once in Bosnia.  He subsequently spent 3 years in the French Foreign Legion, no joke that!  But after this things went badly wrong and he went to prison after an assault. On release from prison he was homeless and Veterans Aid came to the rescue and with the The Soldiers' Charity help with a bursary he went to college and is about to be qualified and full time employmentt is assured in July.  He spoke without a note to the AGM and was an admirable example of how Veterans Aid with our help can save a life.  Meanwhile Andy McMenemy is pounding around Worcester on his 35th consecutive Marathon.
