Ok, Aunty Stella and I recently went on the annual pilgramage to Arnhem the goings on were documented in the NAAFI. There was of course a far more serious aspect of the visit, one that plays very near and dear to my heart. The old boys will not be directly funded for another visit to pay thier respects to thier fallen comrades and close muckers. The Glider pilot regiment association has no 'young blood' obviously it was disbanded many many years ago. While the other regimental associations such as the Parachute Regt and the AACA thrive the GPRA needs all the help it can get. Aunty and I took upon ourselves to try and raise as much money as possible to ensure as many of these brave men could return next year, if only to lay a wreath or a card on thier friends graves. The sight of them in the cemetry was truly gut wrenching, with tears of pride welling up from all involved in the service. These fellas deserve help. They fought like lions, out of thier depth and massivley out numbered. Each man an emporer. Anyone wishing to help please get in touch via PM...... it is our aim to raise another Â£10,000 to add to the Â£2430 already raised and try and get every surviving member (who wants to go) to Oosterbeek next year. I won't post on the matter again, and this isn't a post begging for money.... but should you wish to contribute, dive in.
