    NIVA Poppy tribute to be placed in Prague 11/11/2014.

    Hi all.

    I am delighted to reveal I have the great honour to represent the Royal Tank Regiment with dedicated wreath at the British Embassy arranged Armistice Day ceremony in Prague city cemetery CWGC plot this year on behalf of their fallen buried within.

    During my placement, I will also place a NIVA poppy tribute at the Cross of Sacrifice on behalf of all those buried or commemorated within likewise. Hope OK.

    I have also arranged for a NIVA poppy tribute to be placed at the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing on Armistice Day likewise.

    Last but not least, I wish all NIVA members a most respectful Armistice Day wherever you are!

    Lest We Forget

    Chris.

    Be who you are and say what you feel...
    Because those that matter, don't mind.

    I think that it is very fitting that today on 7's Sunday Night show they showed one of our VC awarded soldiers from Afghanistan, they had helmet camera footage of him running out 3 times to draw fire away from some blokes looking after a wounded mate and giving a chopper a chance to come in for pick up. He was one of those that was invited over by the royals and the showed him and his missus meeting the Queen.

    Cheers Switches. Then again, we have come to expect no less from a stalwart like yourself.
    Hope the lager in Prague was up to standard.
