Yes its not the size that counts but even had we hit everything the guns saluted we certainly would have managed to carry them all home. That is unlike the big herds of red deer in Scotland, estimates on herd sizes ran from 180 to 250 head and that was just in our part of our glen. Not to mention the little family groups of Roe dotted about just about everywhere, hillside as well.It wasnt just Red Deer or even Deer that we saw, plenty of birds of prey and some lovely hares;
I was here instead of at Croydon for a parade as the works rep, I think next year I will if I am still working there attend but make it more formal.
As pointed out by others it is nice to see so many youngsters here, not that long ago I wondered if it would all fall by the wayside but thanks to New Labour we certainly seem to have a need for more names to be added to the memorials.
