Hi folks, Hard to believe that we’re already in August! We hope you’re having a great summer, enjoying the sunshine and taking care of yourself during the occasional heatwave… Another month, another completely new government under PM Boris Johnson.

Hi folks, With the news thoroughly full of the Tory leadership contest – was Rory Stewart an MI6 spy or not is about as thrilling as it gets – it seems like a great time to look away from the news for a bit. Luckily, we’ve been busy putting not just great jobs but also […]

Hi folks, With President Trump making most of the headlines this week, it seems appropriate to cover his presence at the D-Day Landings commemoration in Portsmouth yesterday.

Hi folks, We don’t ask for much but this week we have two favours to ask you. Firstly, some poor veteran out there, or their family, is missing some hard-earned medals. We all know how much awards mean to our forces and their loved ones. If you’re in the Derby area, can you identify this […]

Hi folks, Another "fascinating" few weeks in politics again. As ever, we'll rise above it all and look at some of the lesser known and more heartwarming news.  Last week saw the Soldiering On Awards, which celebrate the achievements of the military community, by honouring serving and retired personnel, veterans, their families and organisations that support […]
