Play nicely, everyone.

Sorry to jump into this post so late, been away for a while - would one of the Admins please pm me ref the Op Banner site, cheers.

Also if anyone has any queries regarding the Fallen of Op Banner, please pm me. I would suggest a look at Ken Wharton's two books as they have the most accurate and up to date RoH - accurate as far as has been possible, anyway. Like everything it is on-going work.

A SOLDIER who survived a tour of duty in Afghanistan has been killed by a POTHOLE.

Captain Jonathan Allen, 29, was cycling home from his base when he swerved to avoid the 15ft-long 'crater' and collided with a lorry passing alongside him.

He suffered multiple injuries as he was crushed under the front wheels of the HGV and died at the scene on the A338 on Salisbury Plain, Wilts.

The gaping hole, a mile north of Tidworth, was filled in by Wiltshire County Council workmen on Friday — 36 hours AFTER the fatal accident.

I agree, I have been in contact with Ken as I was put in touch with him via a mate of mine. For those who don't know he has put together three books that are accounts from soldiers of their tours in Northern Ireland. The first one was 'A LONG, LONG WAR' then 'BULLETS, BOMBS AND CUPS OF TEA,' followed by his third book 'BLOODY BELFAST'

He is releasing his forth book 'THE BLOODIEST OF YEARS, 1972' next year.

In the back of each book is an upto date list of the Fallen. If you know details that are not on it his contact details as there and he is very grateful for all help.

He is an ex - Green Jacket himself

As a schoolboy in the mid to late 60s, with a father serving in the army, I read in the papers about the losses in Aden.
They now lie far away in Silent valley. The gravestones can be seen here:

I am sorry it is a long list.

RIP. You are not forgotten.

Hi all

I am a new member and this my first post. To add to my woes, I did not serve in the ARRmy, so flame away. Even worse, I belonged to a grey suited flying club so had no military experience!

My wife's Uncle, Ben Medhurst, died on Sunday just short of 90. He was a tank recovery commander, landed in Normandy late evening of 6th June 44 (or possibly early next day). I believe that he was only 19 y.o.a. and was definitely a Sergeant.

He had a harrowing time in the hedge row battles in Normandy for a few weeks or months and had to do some pretty gruesome stuff. Hence, he only ever talked about it to me. I believe he was in Churchill tanks.

He is to be seen off on the 28th Oct in the Bexley area. Not sure exactly where yet but will find out.

I know that the Army sometimes like to send someone to give an old soldier a salute. PM me if you want further details.

Cheers
