Yes I did. Good on them. I felt a bit sorry for his Doris though, the whole bloody family away in a oner, it'll be a tough tour for her no doubt.

I know quite a few fathers and sons who are currently serving together and have done so on Ops. I also know of five brothers who served together in the same Regiment.

Anyone else know or have served with any fathers and sons or bands of brothers? :D

I saw the article too.Apart from the R Anglian connection,the sappers get a look in too,and one of the sons appears to be recently commissioned in R Anglians.A formidable family indeed!

The interview was very interesting. I loved the 10 second pause after the interviewer asked "Do you think the war is worth it?" (Referring to him and his 3 sons deploying).

I know Danny Mackness well as my old QM, he was a real character and did alot for the Bn.

Good luck sir and your sons stay safe and look out for each other
