Hence the company's annual Christmas donation of bikes to the children of troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and its contributions to the tsunami and Katrina appeals." The Indy has an interestnig article of the future of Big And Expensive (ooops I meant BAE) in the USA. But what struck me is that it seems to give free bikes to the children of deplpyed US service personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. Great, I have no problem with that...but do they do the same to the children of British personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan...? I am not aware they do, but I hope someone will post a reply saying that they do. Remember the B in BAE stands for British.
