That would make me and many thousands of other falklands vets as well then. Lets face it he went there but there wasnt any fighting so a poor headline even if the story was a nice one!

Why does every military funeral these days turn into a pseudo hells angels sausage fest ?

**** knows but it's very crass.

If any of those motorcycling cnuts rock up at my funeral I expect my NOK to lay a snap ambush and string piano wire at neck height across the road.

So should there be a gamekeepers branch where we turn up blowing hunting horns and wearing tweed? Unneccesary show offs!

I like the story and the thought behind it. However, the sad thing is, for every "Jimmy" there will be thousand of others (ex military or not) who will have a "paupers" funeral each year, attended only by the presiding minister and the coffin bearers. Twas ever thus and no amount of hand wringing will change that.

Im confused by the story, on one hand it says he died alone and nobody knew him, on the other it says he was known as "Jimmy" and drove a bus.

He was SBS. special bus service. No one knew him because he always wore a balaclava or black nasty.

Did he retire as a driver with a conductors pension?

Your not wrong, I don't see the whole point of rocking up with a crappy chrome tractor at a servicemans funeral. I guess it's one of those 'Look at us, I'm a cowboy, a steel horse I ride' affair....twats.

I'm a member of the RLBR and my branch is the riders branch but I have never and will never attend a ride / meet due to the whole Harley wankinson attitude.

And who was the ****** in blues with the gold over blue hackle in his beret. Looked like an old RCT badge, but couldn't make it out.
Notwithstanding that, he looked about 19 and I'm sure he was (brace yourselves)......................GINGER.
