Armed Forces Day, Stoke Park, Guildford 2015

All set - bring on the public!

OK Chaps, all set – bring on the public!

This is not a complete picture of all that went on in Stoke Park but from the perspective of a mere ‘minion’ I would like to thank folks for their good humour, support and charity.

It was made possible by the great organisation of Guildford Borough Council. It was free and family friendly. The park and ride worked a treat.

Enjoy the pics and I’ll add words of thanks to all concerned with the PWRR  [Local Regiment] later. But thank you to all who donated time, food, and the rest free of charge. You turned in a great performance and made a real difference to a lot of good people.                                           THANK YOU.

Man sized portions of cake thanks to the 3rd Btn PWRR chefs and Lynn and Lucy. Mmm. A pasty, a carrot cake and a brownie and you wouldn’t need to eat for a week!

Many choirs amuse the crowd and one chap in particular.

Surrey Police kept us all safe.

It would be remiss of me to fail to mention Lynn Smithwhite of the PWRR welfare and benevolent fund the Friends of PWRR and teh 3rd Btn chefs who worked additional hours to get the cakes ready.

Also thanks to Greggs, Tesco’s emporium , Bridor Ltd, Sainsburys, West Cornwall Pasty shop, and Baco South East for everything they so generously donated.  And a mention in dispatches for the Arundel Brewery’s ‘Sussex Tiger’ beer.

The next big thing is the ‘Tigers Ride to Recovery’ launching this Thursday 2nd July. See you there?

Sergeant Johnson Beharry VC British Army was awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest military decoration for valour in the British and Commonwealth armed forces, for twice saving members of his unit, the 1st Battalion Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, from ambushes on 1 May and again on 11 June 2004 at Al-Amarah, Iraq. He sustained serious head injuries in the latter engagement.

    Competition for Magna Carta? No, but it was great to be there to assist.
