I've spoken to my SSM about attending a Remembrance Sunday service at my local war memorial next weekend and while he's happy with the idea has asked me to put the request into writing. I normally go back to the main Nottingham service on the Victoria Enbankment but this year is holding a special place as I've been invited to attend the opening of the memorial garden around the new war memorial in Clifton which I helped raise money for by walking the length of Hadrian's Wall. I need to write this letter over the weekend so I can leave it in his in-tray Sunday due to me going on a 3 day course Sunday evening. I've been on a course all week so have been unable to ask for help from anyone from my troop but have had a complete brain fart as I've sat down to write the letter. Good people of ARRSE could you give me some hint's and tips as to how to write this letter, it's been a long time since I've had to write a letter like this and I really don't want to f**k it up (new SSM and I'd like to make a good impression).
