Newsletter 6 November 2014
As we approach Remembrance Sunday and pay respect to the fallen, the injured and veterans of all wars, it’s important to ask ourselves “where would we be without them?”
That’s why we’re asking you to keep an eye on our poppy sellers. Unfortunately, there are those people who want to verbally abuse poppy sellers for whatever twisted reason but this year things took a revolting turn with a fire attack on a young cadet in Manchester. There’s no need to stoop to the level of those who abuse poppy sellers, but verbally standing up for them or threatening them with the police will often diffuse the situation.
We hope that you have a calm and peaceful Remembrance Day and get the respect that you deserve- let’s work together to make sure these incidents become rarer by the year.

Former Para & Royal British Legion Member Nearing Title
The Monarchs Way foot path Warwickshire was certainly Paddy Doyle’s toughest cross country record to date. The former Para and 4th Dan martial arts instructor had to endure steep muddy inclines and ankle high waterlogged paths to clinch the Guinness World Record cross country marathon carrying a 40 lb pack, finishing in a new World Record time of 5 hrs 32 mins 07 secs.
Doyle said “My support team were great, however speed marching a full marathon over a tough arduous cross country course made me focus more, I did not want to snap my ankle on this difficult and mentally testing Monarchs Way path”.
He also set three records on the day which where 8 miles cross country 1 hr 34 mins 03 secs. 15 miles cross country 3 hrs 03 mins 28 secs and 20 mile cross country 4 hrs 27 mins 06 secs.World Record official commented “Paddy is well on his way to clearly surpass the 350th record milestone and may possibly achieve 355 feats of physical endurance challenges on 6 December.” Doyle currently holds 220 strength speed stamina feats and has achieved a career 352 titles.

Joke: An engineer in hell
An engineer dies and goes to hell. He’s hot and miserable, so he decides to take action. The A/C has been busted for a long time, so he fixes it. Things cool down quickly. The moving walkway motor jammed, so he unjams it. People can get from place to place more easily. The TV was grainy and unclear, so he fixes the connection to the Satellite dish and now they get hundreds of high def channels, although they still cannot watch Breaking Bad on AMC.
One day, God decides to look down on Hell to see how his grand design is working out and notices that everyone is happy and enjoying cool drinks. He asks the Devil what’s up?
The Devil says, “Things are great down here since you sent us an engineer.”
“What?” says God. “An engineer? I didn’t send you one of those. That must have been a mistake. Send him upstairs immediately.”
The Devil responds, “No way. We want to keep our engineer. We like him.”
God demands, “If you don’t send him to me immediately, I’ll sue!”
The Devil laughs. “Where are You going to get a lawyer?”
