May the Fourth be with you (sorry, couldn't resist!).
This bank holiday weekend not only saw the usual crazy mix of weather – do we expect different?- but also the 100th Army vs Navy Rugby. This grand old tradition is such a great occasion to celebrate the fitness and sportmanship of our forces, always a credit to all involved. As ever, the teams had Royal support with Harry there to represent the Invictus Games. It was the 61st time that the army have taken the title but the navy fought hard. You can read a round up of the match here.
We're keeping out of politics for now but please do feel free to share your thoughs (in a family-friendly manner if you can) over on our Facebook page!

You could be eligible for a university degree in management
A university degree in management can lead you into a worthwhile second career. Your rank could make you eligible for an online MBA at a prestigious UK university. Even if you have a specialist skill, a university degree in management is particularly relevant as your next career path should take you into management.
www.onlineuniversitymilipol.com works with military and ex-military candidates worldwide. We pilot you through the university acceptance process by turning your Services experience into ‘academic points’ so that you are offered an online university place with LSM (distance learning associate college of Anglia Ruskin University). There is no charge for this work, as it is paid by LSM, so you can find out if you comply without obligation. We remain with you throughout your study and will even attend the graduation ceremony on your behalf if you are abroad.
The cost of online study is significantly less than that of attending university and, more importantly, you do not need to stop working whilst gaining your degree.
One of the big advantages of online study is flexibility, particularly when you are unable to commit to a fixed weekly schedule. You might even finish earlier than an attending student if you are able to put in more time but your qualification and benefits will be exactly the same. Additionally, you can start after acceptance rather than waiting for the next year like an attending student.

Joke: The Programmer
A wife asks her programmer husband to go to the store.
She asks him, "Can you go down to the grocery store, and get a gallon of milk, and if they have eggs, get 6."
Later on he returns home and she looks at his purchases and says, "Why in the world did you buy 6 gallons of milk?"
He responded, "They had eggs."
