I'm not a part of the 3rd Battalion, or even the Army, but I'll show up in my RAF Blues to cheer on our Tri-Service lads.

I am immensely proud of our Military both male and female. My grandson James Cooke passes out at Catterick Garrison on Friday one day after this event he will be inducted into the third Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment. There will not be a prouder family than us there on Friday. I will be in Barnsley tomorrow to support our Soldiers I fly the Union Flag proudly in my garden in honor of all our serving Soldiers. If anyone objects to this they can always leave our shores. After all this is Britain. Dave Bogg
