  1. Hi Everyone.

    Mike Walsh, a good friend and benefactor to the Ammunition Technical trade and an honorary member of the Association of Ammunition Technicians (along with his brother) is 47 years old in April. To mark this occasion, he is attempting to lose 47lbs in weight in 47 days and then walk 47 miles in 47 hours carrying 47 pounds weight, eventually ending up at the summit of Snowdon. Once he has completed his challenge he will celebrate by consuming 47 units of Alcohol! All money raised will go to BLESMA.

    Please see his just giving website detailed below and donate as little or as much as you can to support limbless service personnel. Your support will be very much appreciated and will help change the lives of our many limbless service personnel and their families.

    Mike Walsh is fundraising for British Limbless Ex-Service Men's Association (Blesma)
