This Is My Personal Tribute To The Great Courage & Professionalism Of Our British Armed Services.
I do hope that when you have read this that it will inspire you to do what ever you can to support the Help the Heroes British Armed Forces Charity
Our British Armed Forces Have The Proud Reputation Of Being The Very Best Throughout The Entire World.
Our brave soldiers have fort so hard & died on more foreign battelfields than any other nation on earth, King George the 5th once said that ''our dead British soldiers if lined up end to end would circamnavigate the entire Planet''. Our troops have planted our flag over a quater of the Earth's surface as well as been responsible for defending over 458 million of the worlds population. Our servicmen have been on active service almost every day since the end of WW2. I think that it is time that we as a nation showed our respect & thanks for their great achievments by doing something really special for their wounded who have returned home from the living Hell of Southern Afghanistan with the loss of their arms or legs & in some cases both as well as other very serious injuries.
They do say that if you ever get to meet an ex Para who fort at Arnhem that you should buy him a drink. I think that should now extend to include Northern Ireland, The Falklands, The Gulf War & Afghanistan
The photo below is of my 20 year old son who I am very proud to say is serving in the Parachute Regiments Special Forces Support Group, God Bless him!
This is living poof that no other regiment in the British Army can march as well as the Coldstream Guards. This link is the welcome home parade of The Coldstream Guards after their tough tour of duty in Southern Afghanistan. It is very moving as it clearly shows the love & respect of the crowds for our very brave soldiers returning home from a mission impossible situation. The Coldstream Guards are currently on deployment in Southern Afghanistan.
The Mighty British Empire, Now Called The British Commonwealth Is Made Up Of 54 Countries From Around The Globe. We Should All Feel Very Proud That Our Queen is Head Of State To 16 Countries Including The Worlds Second Largest Country Canada, As Well As Australia, New Zealand & Tasmania & Other Overseas Realms. Her Majesty Is Also Head Of The British Commonwealth & Still Carries More Political Power Than Any President As Her Majesty Has The Power To Declare War Without An Act Of Parliament Being Passed. Our Queen Is Widely Respected By Many Other Heads Of State For Her Great Wisdom & Experiance. Her Majesty Is Also Defender Of The Faith & Head Of The Worldwide Anglican Christian Church Of England.
You have to remember that it was British soldiers who built the largest empire that the world has ever seen by their true grit courage against sometimes impossible situations.
Please remember that they have given their day for our tomorrow
British Troops Have Set The Bench Mark For The Rest Of The World To Try & Match
Please go to this link below as it's a great tribute to our brave heroe's who have been killed in action out in the Hell hole of Southern Afghanistan. You will see one common feature in all their faces & that is the love for their freinds, family as well as the soldiers next to them in battle. As for the Taliban who were responsible for their deaths, if it were possible to see photos of the Taliban fighters you would be able to see their intense hatred for our free Western,Christian world based on love, forgiveness, freedom & democracy
Please visit The Help for Heroe's Website below. I would respectfully ask you to donate whatever you can afford to this charity as they are doing a great job in helping to rebuild the lives of our returning wounded war heroe's. I am going to continue to support this charity as I really belive in supporting these very brave soldiers.

This is my tribute to The Royal Armoured Corp & the Challenger 2 Heavy Battle Tank
The British Challeger 2 heavy battle tank is the most powerful & most deadly tank in the world, no tank has seen such a level of superiority as this since the German King Tiger tank of WW2. It is also the fastest off road tank ever built as it can achieve a top speed of over 40mph over rough terrane without it's rifled 120m/m main gun ever going off target. when in combat it can hide itself in a cloud of thick white smock generated by it's very powerful V12 engine. Not a single Challenger 2 has ever been lost in action in either of the two Gluf wars or any other action. Only another Challenger 2 has achieved this in a friendly fire engagement. In the Gulf war one Challeger 2 was hit at point blank range by over 60 RPG rounds as well as anti-tank missile but none inflicted any damage due the the top secret Chobam Armour. The Challenger 2 is now classed as the best heavy battle tank in the world. The tank crews who opperate them are just so very professional as in the Gulf War one crew destoyed an Iraqi tank at a range of over 5000 metres as its 120m/m barrel is rifled & deadly accurate.
