support your Band Service Charities!" Make a donation to
Jamie's "Thrash for Cash" ride!
"I had an idea…..!"
To combine and realise four elements of my life so far neglected, passion,
obsession, ambition and motivation.
• Passion: - Motorcycling! Can't get enough of
it. (Just like making love but the joy of it lasts a lot longer!)
• Obsession: - To complete The Ironbutt Association's
"Saddlesore Ride" - 1000 miles in 24 hours. Starting from
Gloucester on 1st October 2004.
• Ambition: - To include a visit to The Royal
Yacht Britannia now berthed in Edinburgh, (I made a lot of noise
on her way back in the early '70's.), and attend the Band
Reunion at HMS Nelson, Portsmouth the following day.
• Motivation: - Enter - The Band Benevolent Fund
and The Band Service Amenities Fund. What better cause of motivation
do you need?
"What can YOU do?"
• Bring loads of cash/cheques to The Band Reunion!
George Tate, The Corps. Bandmaster (Hope I got that right George?) has
agreed to arrange for a collection vessel to be on hand at the reunion.
All donations on the night will then be handed over (To The P.D.M. possibly?)
and allocated to the two funds. Unfortunately, at the time of writing
this I don't have an address for postal donations but if you ring The
Blue Band on 02392726173 or George Tate on 02392726161 I'm sure they
will provide the relevant details.
Thankyou all, in anticipation. See you in Pompey!
(Ex RMB 4053)
Be safe and see you at the reunion.
