Hello

I booked the ferry this evening, going there alone. Young TEDDY couldn't come with me.
So, see you all in two months.

sincerely

Sue & I spent another lovely day at the NMA today.
We combined a picnic with a little bit of work - the benches were both sanded, brushed and repainted and the Memorial was given a good buffing.
We were delighted to meet the lovely Amanda Green, granddaughter of the late Arthur Green, No3 Comando. Amanda also visits the NMA on a regular basis and, when there, tidies up the area around the CVA Memorial.
Thanks Amanda.

:shock:
Ummm, something has just, this very minute, cropped up - which means I'm probably never going to Alrewas again! In fact, I'm never going to leave the house ever again...

But then I can't wait to see the Memorial Walls...

See you all there,
Nick

Well done Nick and Sue on an excellent job. Nick you thoroughly deserve what Geoff has promised. I hope someone gets a good photo when it happens so as it can take pride of place in our gallery
