Newsletter – 25 April 2019
April 25, 2019 Newsletter
It's been a great week for forces past and present as we celebrate a number of important events.
This week has seen the 93rd birthday of HM The Queen, the head of our armed forces and a great advocate for and supporter of servicemen and women. Happy birthday, Ma'am!
Today is ANZAC Day, which marks the 104th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings of 1915, in which thousands upon thousands of Australian and New Zealand troops suffered devastating losses while landing on the coast of Turkey. The date lives on in the national psyche of both nations to this day. If you'd like to take part in commemorative events, you'll find a useful site here.
Finally, a belated Happy St George's Day, which we marked this year with an unseasonably sunny and warm day – we hope you had a chance to celebrate. Please enjoy this British Army video on "How to kill a dragon" as our gift to you! The video is part of a fantastic series being produced which really showcases the unique sense of humour of the military. If you enjoy the dragon slaying, you'll love "how to wear a kilt".

Joke: Cold Water
A man went to visit his 90 year old grandfather. While eating the breakfast of eggs and bacon prepared for him, he notices his plate isn't clean. So he says, "Grandfather, are these plates clean?"
His grandfather replies, "Those plates are as clean as cold water can get them, so go on and finish your meal."
That afternoon, while eating the hamburgers his grandfather made for lunch, he noticed many little black specks around the edge of his plate so again he asked, "Grandfather are you sure these plates are clean?"
Without looking up from his burger, the grandfather says, "I told you those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them, now don't ask me about it anymore."
Later that day, they went out to get dinner. As he was leaving the house, the man's grandfather's dog who was lying on the floor started to growl and would not let him pass.
His grandfather shouts, "Coldwater, get out of the way!"
