Received this via Email & it struck a Chord: Take 30 seconds of your time. Nominate Private Thomas âTommyâ Atkins for the Great Briton 2006 now, and prevent some faceless, self-satisfied, smug public figure walking away with it! There is another Great Britons award scheme underway. As usual some overpaid, overexposed, "celebrity" will probably win but I think it is time that we recognised the unsung heroes who make us proud to be British. I'm referring to the British soldier serving his country in the most dangerous parts of the world with seemingly no thanks from anybody. He is called Tommy Atkins! What a scream if he were to win! If you agree go to: www.greatbritons.org And nominate Tommy Atkins under the Public Life section (although campaigning might seem more appropriate - this would be lost on our civilian friends).
