A Quiet Toast...

#1
is one I'll be calling for at the next mess for those few exceptional types who have been granted the ultimate in accolades from the Queen and Country..

2006 marks the 150th anniversary of the Victoria Cross

and despite whatever ranting and raving is going on over the justification for war in various parts of the world, those that rose above the call of duty and selflessly accomplished a great task in defence of friends and fellow soldiers deserve a moment of quiet reflection and acknowledgement ..No fancy medal will ever be enough to convey the awe and respect for their effort, but it will be a symbol of their valour and for that alone it deserves a drink to its own place in the hearts and minds of military types..
