The Forces March

This is the exceptional events I ever take part in, firstly because it is in aid of The Veterans Charity plus 2020 represents the 9th occasion and I know I will see many of my lifelong friends there year after year. In addition, with no cut off the mental enjoyment level is increased.
I fix the into my diary on repeat.
