Judge, thanks for your support mate, in fact thank you to everybody who supported the March. It was an excellent day and we're doing it next year - just in time for my legs to stop aching!

I'll speak to the Team Captain about a link/donation avenue. ZUJ.

We will remember them

In memory Ben and of the 14 men who's lives were lost 3 years ago today on the 2nd September 2006 when Nimrod XV230 exploded over Afghanistan.Also thinking of the sadness within their families today.

How often we hear aircraft, soaring overhead
How often we think of those 14 men, now that they are dead.
Every day , Every day.

How often we hear their voices somewhere far away
How often do we wish we had never seen them
Walk away , Walk Away

Those 14 men, that band of brothers took from us that day.
Who's last words which will always haunt us all.
Mayday . Mayday

The date, 2nd September, is fixed in my mind as much as every other personal anniversary in my life. The date and the names of those guys will never be forgotten.

Sincerely

Had a quiet night in last night - just a few beers and lots of happy memories.
Still thinking of you guys, and it still hurts.
RIP

Crew 3, 120 Squadron

We both attended the short service at the Arboretum yesterday and left some flowers for all the crew on behalf of those that couldn't make it (we are fortunate in being less than an hour away). Three years on and it is still difficult to come to terms with the loss. It is sobering to see how many names have been added since the inscriptions for crew 3 and 2009 names have yet to be added.
Best wishes to all our friends, stay safe.

I had the privilege of attending a memorial service yesterday at the base that the crew took off from on their fateful mission. Virtually everyone on the base turned out, despite the heat, and it was a touching and fitting tribute to their memory. RIP.

Stood at the grave side of four brave men, at Kinloss on 2nd Sep. It was raining; tears from above.

I can't believe that it has been 4 years. I'd just pranged my car and got to the pub late for lunch. I walked in to see Mrs SMT writing down the names as she got the call from her duty people. Still such a shock to the system.

Leigh, our course print has pride of place on my study wall. You were always a gentleman, and always better at golf than me!

A week ago, I was hunting through some old photos from my teenage "spotter" days and came across a photo of XV230 overshooting at Turnhouse. It brought tears.

Rest well,

SMT
