Very moving to see it set out like that.

Such a shame nobody bothered to proof-read it - one entry about an RAF Regt SAC refers to him as a Pte who joined the Army. There are other little things in it too.

Well done Guardian, nevertheless.

Somebody probably did proof read it. They didn't ask me to, and I might have spotted some of the bloomers.
But you know, it is really hard for people with no idea of the military to get titles/ranks right. On Telic 1, a Corporal of Horse I wrote about became a Corporal, and when he saw it in the Guardian my guts were garters. No-one had heard of a CoH before here and he had his rank stripped by a sub-editor who didn't know.
So, forgive the mistakes in it, maybe, and admire the sentiment. It took forever, and so did the spread in the paper of the 179.
