A Sad Day – But One Of Honour

the glorious dead

Today, a grim milestone has been reached. The British nation has now lost 200 of her best and bravest to the war in Afganistan. The figure was reached by the loss of a soldier of the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Welsh, who died of his injuries in our very own Selly Oak hospital. Let us take a minute to remember these men and women who have given their lives for their country.
