Thread: Cpl Ian Henry Armstrong 14/20th Kings Hussars

  1. #11
    Hi, i would like to thank NIVA for a beautiful service at the arboretum on Saturday. My father Cpl Ian Henry Armstrong was one of those that lost their lives in Northern Ireland and on Saturday his name was called out. Myself, my mum and husband were very happy to hear his name mentioned; it made it even more special because it was the first time my mum had heard her husbands name called out. After the service we were able to visit the tree which is dedicated to him and leave a poppy to signify our visit, and that we are thinking of him. It was a lovely ending to our summer holiday as we had been to Tidworth barracks where my dad was laid to rest.

    Thank you for the beautiful service we very much look forward to our annual visit.

    We are getting a bit long in the tooth, those who still have some, we limp a bit, groan about our aches and pains but will never forget our fallen.

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