Just a small sample of our 2019 season. It seams like it's been a long winter. Hoping for some sun in 2020 and clear skies so we can get some more jumps in while promoting the good work of the Royal British Legion.

So, the season is over for us. Its been another fantastic year and the entire team are due a rest. We have plenty of plans in place, so watch this space for some subtle changes to the team image next year and we look forward to displaying at a venue near you while supporting the Royal British Legion in everything we do.
Have a great Christmas guys.

We won didn't we Sarge?

That's it lad, you can go home now
The fightings done and we won.

It doesn't feel like we won Sarge
What with so many young men and women dead.
So many lives ruined.

No lad, it doesn't
But we survived, so we won.

What'll I do now Sarge?

You'll be fine lad
They're making a land fit for heroes back home.
They'll take care of you.

But Sarge, my mind's a mess and my body sore
I really don't know who I am anymore
How will I survive the peace?

Don't you worry lad
You've done your duty
They'll look after you.

Hello Sarge it's been a few years
We've shed a few tears
And time has passed,
But we're still here eh Sarge
We won.

How you keeping lad?
Did they keep their promises
As you kept yours
Fighting in their wars?

No Sarge, I sleep rough on the street
And my mental health isn't good.
I have to beg for help
But you know Sarge, I don't like to.
But we won though, didn't we Sarge
Just they forgot to build a land fit for heroes.

Aye lad, we won.
Here's five pounds
Go get yourself a coffee lad.
There's no more I can do.
Since I got back home
I've been just the same as you.

But we'll get through it won't we Sarge

Of course lad, we always do.
We have to
We owe it to our fallen comrades.
They may forget us and the promises made
Leaving our heroes on the street.

But we never forget.

No lad. We never forget.

#neverforget

Team member, Fire Fighter and Reservist Dean Hoskins is busy trying to raise funds for one of the Swindon Pumps (Fire engine for us lesser mortals) to be wrapped in time for Remembrance Sunday.
Woudnt it be fantastic to see this vehicle out and about the local areas while attending local emergencies. Especially as many of our Emergency Personnel have close connections to our Armed Forces and The Royal British Legion.
Please do consider donating to this worthwhile project.
