Remembrance Day: 11-11-11-11

The Royal British Legion: Shoulder to shoulder with all who serve

11th Hour. 11th Day. 11th Month. 11th Year.
For Them. For Now. Forever.
Please remember our nation's brave Service men and women.

Today is another day when I am stopping my blog, and only one story will be running on it for the whole of today. That story is Remembrance Day.

Lifted from a letter from The Royal British Legion:

Many people associate Remembrance Day with the heroes of D-Day, or the Battle of Britain's Spitfire pilots. Some people think of the deeds of the SAS during the Falklands conflict. Or, of course, Flanders Fields from World War I, carpeted in poppies growing where so many men lost their lives.

But in the last few years it's also been about the nation showing its support for the soldiers returning injured and traumatised from current conflicts. If any of them are hurt out there, they're going to need the support of charities like The Royal British Legion.

I know that times are hard. But, if you can spare some money, please do consider a donation to The Royal British Legion. It will make a real, immediate difference, helping brave men and women who may be at their lowest point and in desperate need of your support.

Follow the link to find out more and to make a donation:

I always practise what I preach and put my money where my mouth is. I have made a donation - join me if you can!

All donations will help The Royal British Legion continue to provide serving and ex-Service men and women and their dependents in need with practical, financial or emotional support and will help them to make a real difference to the lives of many serving and ex-Service people and their families.
