Dear Martin
No doubt others have thanked you and your riflemen for parading at Milton Keynes last week, but thanks from me. I was impressed by the attention to detail and glad that you are keeping some of our traditions alive.

I didn’t ask whether you are walking to Corunna in January?

In the meantime, good luck to the 1st 95th Rifles!

Simon
