Won't be around tomorrow and 64 years on, its fitting to raise a glass the former Corps members and Ancestors involved in Operation Overlord. In particular Operations Tonga & Mallard (but in no way belittled other efforts) which saw the GLider Pilot Regiment placed firmly on the map. S/sgts Wallwork and Ainsworth being the first allied soldiers to land on French soil, albeit it slightly ungracefully, but after a truly legendary peice of flying. 92 further gliders took part in Operation Tonga..One of the 'ninety-two' was flown by S/Sgt 'Jock' Bramah and Sgt Ron Bartley. They and their two medic passengers both survived a 100mph (160km) crash into an orchard with nothing more than cuts and bruises. The medical jeep, had to be abandoned. (Pretty f**king ballsy? ) Feeling immensely proud that our Guidon carries the Glider Pilot Regiment battle honours, tonight I'll be raising a glass in thanks, and in tribute to those who gave their today.
