I want to let all ARRSE members know about the effort to raise funds for the horrifically wounded soldier, so shabbily treated by the Government. We all remember Ben Parkinson, the RHA/PARA and the poor compensation payout he received from the MOD. His local newspaper, Doncaster Today (doncasterfreepress.co.uk) are running a fund to raise money for him. If anyone would like to contribute they can send cheques to: Benjamin James Parkinson Trust, Yorkshire Bank, PO Box 17, 19 St Sepulchre Gate, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, DN1 1SJ Cheques should be made payable to 'Ben Parkinson' or 'Ben Parkinson Trust'. I feel sure that some will want to help this unfortunate soldier, whose life has so dramatically changed for the worse.
