#1
RIP to jozsco...franky..barber , and the 2 blackwatch lads casper + jamie kerr

i deployed on the start of telic 10 straight from training.. something i'll remember for the rest of my life

A Parade and Memorial Service will be held to mark the return of 2 R WELSH from Op TELIC 10 in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff on Tuesday 11 December 2007

The Battalion will form up outside Cardiff Castle at 1000 hrs and will march through Cardiff City Centre, preceded by a Warrior AFV, to the Millennium Stadium. A medals parade, attended by some VIP’s, will commence at 1100 hrs followed immediately by a musical interlude (Morriston Orpheus Male Voice Choir or Katherine Jenkins). The choir will also perform from 1015-1045 as guests and members of public take their seats. The Drumhead Service will take place from 1150 to 1230 hrs.

Any members of the Regimental Association who wish to attend as members of public will be most welcome but must be seated at the Stadium by 1015 hrs. Whilst lunch will be provided for members of the Battalion their families and invited guests, it is not possible to provide this for those who wish to attend. There is however a vast range of suitable establishments in the City Centre.

The event will finish at approximately 1230 hrs.

Entry to the Millennium Stadium will be via Gate 2.

Now that is the way to bloody well do it!

Hope the day goes well [esp if you get Katherine Jenkins] for you all.

Cymru am Byth!

It was a great day. The crowds in Cardiff were in their hundreds and the lads had a fantastic reception.The Welsh Assembly Government and the Millenium stadium staff really pushed the boat out. It would have been nice to see some of the other parades throughout the UK as well supported and funded. And considering they had one day to put it all together the RSM and those involved should be congratulated on a job very well done.

I know you're all gagging to get on leave but is it too late to ask you to leave 15 blokes behind at the stadium to take the place of those muppets we sent to France back in Sept? Red jerseys will be forthcoming.
