It's always great to see a hero get the send off he deserves, so a huge thank you to everyone who attended. Elsewhere, we have some really interesting comparisons for […]

Hi folks, Wednesday saw the 40th anniversary of two of the most notorious events of the Northern Ireland Troubles. On 27 August 1979, Lord Louis Mountbatten, the Queen's second cousin, and three others were killed after a bomb exploded on his fishing boat in County Sligo.

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, We were really fascinated by this story about the current provision for mental health in the Armed Forces. Following huge investment and better understanding of mental health issues, serving military personnel are reporting a very low rate of mental ill-health – averaging at 2.7%, compared to 4.4% among the British public. It’s clear […]

Hi folks, Last weekend saw Armed Forces Day marked across the UK. It didn't get a huge amount of mainstream media coverage but we did find these great pictures of celebrations.  It's genuinely fascinating to see which events and stories do get picked up by the media. It's even more interesting to look at how […]

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. We hope that the coverage today will reach more people than ever, giving them a valuable chance to gain more understanding of the Normandy Campaign, which marked the turning […]
