    Just a gentle reminder to our UK members that it is the annual Poppy appeal and as buying a poppy in the street/shops seems to be impossible these days, there are other ways to support the appeal such as with a poppy wallpaper for your mobile and/or desk top. Please visit http://www.royalbritishlegion.co.uk/ and make a donation, no matter how small. With our soldiers being wounded and killed on an almost daily basis in Iraq and Afghanistan, the legion needs the money more now than it has done for many years.

    Indeed, Well done lads.

    Having lost my father, Grandfather, three Uncles and a step Uncle, in the numerous wars, WW1/WW2 Falklands, Sierra Leone, Kosovo and Afghanistan. I support these 500% and urge every single one of you to donate, £5. The price of two pints of beer.

    It's much needed to look after the vets which are living in inadaquate conditions, after defending our country, to give you a better life.

    Just Had To Say Nice To See People Appriciate A Topic Like This On A Car Forum,i Think The Job People Did N Still Do To This Day Is Amazingly Over Looked & I As Many Others Definately Wear My Poppy With Pride As A Mark Of Respect,to Me The Teaching About Romans N Vikings Etc Should Be Phased Down N Children Should Be Taught About More Up To Date History Which To Me Seems More Important & Close To Home Ie Ww1,ww2 Etc
    So As Above I Wear Mine For My Grandads Etc Who Didnt Die In The War But Fought In It & Everyone Else Who Has Or Is Part Of One
    I dont work here for the pay,or the enjoyment,so why do i work here

    I pay money out of my wages every month to the British Legion. It's only £5 but you don't pay tax on it and the government adds a little on top (which makes it doubly good ).
    I'll be at church on Sunday, all dressed up. Then it's back to camp for a curry and some drinks
    Ex Golf GT TDi 150. Then an Evo 8. Then a Honda S2000. Now an Evo 5 (and a little pug 106)

    WORD - british legion n RNLI each month, both vastly under supported causes in our tin pot country
    You may think I'm being helpful yet sarcastic, this is only because I feel I need to help you to help yourself in the future

    This is something I do every year without fail. When I was in the RAF, we were expected to attend if not on essential duty somewhere, but now as a civilian it is out of choice.

    I will be at Lincoln cathedral on Sunday in my suit, poppy and campaign medal (Air Operations over Iraq). This is the one day of the year where absolutley everyone in the country should stop, reflect and thank the hundreds of thousands of those brave souls who fought, flew and sailed to defend the country but did not come back.

    And, I always make a point to speak to as many of the old boys as I can on the day, as there numbers are getting smaller every year.
    Boys never grow up......their toys just get more expensive!!!!
