Today I got my seasonal package of bumph from the Regimental Association. Included was a request from the Colonel of the Regiment on behalf of Brigadier DRAC (who was a sprog 2Lt in C Sqn IIRC in my day) begging me for money because: Note that DRAC has successfully managed to get Â£9M out of the Lottery Fund. And there he is, not a lesbian, ethnically-diverse, physically-challenged single parent (unless he has had the mother of all makeovers since I knew him). Shirley it must be a worthy cause. Obviously, this request was specifically aimed at LD and forebears, but other regimental association newsletters are certain to follow suit. I have posted this for the benefit of anyone not in a Regimental Assocation. After all, you wouldn't want a superb new Tank Museum to appear to have been largely funded by and therefore attributed to a bunch of Norvern Munkeys and you missed your chance, would you? ;o) Note to mods: maybe you want to make this a sticky? ps Apologies in advance for any typos I may have introduced: it was transcribed by hand, head down, with about four fingers.
