    Our Brave Soldiers *****recived as an email****

    Last week somebody was in West London attending a conference.

    While in the airport, returning home, they heard several people behind beginning to clap and cheer.

    They immediately turned around and witnessed one of the greatest acts of patriotism I have ever seen.

    Moving through the terminal was a group of soldiers in their uniforms, as they began heading to their gate everyone (well almost
    everyone) was abruptly to their feet with their hands waving and cheering.

    When I saw the soldiers, probably 30-40 of them, being applauded and cheered for, it hit me. I'm not alone. I'm not the only
    red blooded Briton who still loves this country and supports our troops and their families. Of course I immediately stopped and began clapping for these young unsung heroes who are putting their lives on the line everyday for us so we can go to school, work, and enjoy our home without fear or reprisal.

    Just when I thought I could not be more proud of my country or of our service men and women a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old, ran up to one of the male soldiers.

    He knelt down and said 'hi,' the little girl then asked him if he would give something to her daddy for her.

    The young soldier didn't look any older than maybe 22 himself, said he would try and what did she want to give to her daddy.

    Suddenly the little girl grabbed the neck of this soldier, gave him the biggest hug she could muster and then kissed him on the cheek.

    The mother of the little girl, who said her daughters name was Courtney, told the young soldier that her husband was a Corporal and had been in Afghanistan for 5 months now.

    As the mum was explaining how much her daughter, Courtney, missed her father, the young soldier began to tear up.

    When this temporarily single mum was done explaining her situation, all of the soldiers huddled together for a brief second.

    Then one of the other servicemen pulled out a military looking walkie-talkie.

    They started playing with the device and talking back and forth on it.

    After about 10-15 seconds of this, the young soldier walked back over to Courtney, bent down and said this to her, 'I spoke to your
    daddy and he told me to give this to you.'

    He then hugged this little girl that he had just met and gave her a Kiss on the cheek.

    He finished by saying 'Your daddy told me to tell you that he loves you more than anything and he is coming home very soon.'

    The mum at this point was crying almost uncontrollably and as the young soldier stood to his feet he saluted Courtney and her mum.

    I was standing no more than 6 feet away as this entire event unfolded.

    As the soldiers began to leave, heading towards their gate, people resumed their applause.

    As I stood there applauding and looked around, there were very few dry eyes, including my own.

    That young soldier in one last act of moment turned around and blew a kiss to Courtney with a tear rolling down his cheek.

    We need to remember everyday all of our soldiers and their families and thank God for them and their sacrifices.

    At the end of the day, it's good to be an Englishman.

    RED FRIDAYS

    Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday.

    The reason?

    Englishmen and women who support our troops used to be called the 'silent majority'.

    We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for Country and home in record breaking numbers.

    We are not organized, boisterous or over-bearing.

    We get no liberal media coverage on TV, to reflect our message or our opinions.

    Many English people, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of Britain supports our
    troops.

    Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday and continues each and every
    Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that every Briton who supports our men and women afar will wear something red.

    By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make Great Britain on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football team

    If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family, It will not be long
    before Britain is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once 'silent' majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.

    The first thing a soldier says when asked 'What can we do to make things better for you?' is...'We need your support and your
    prayers'...

    Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example; and wear something red every Friday.

    IF YOU AGREE -- THEN SEND THIS ON

    IF YOU COULD NOT CARE LESS THEN HIT THE DELETE BUTTON.

    IT IS YOUR CHOICE.

    THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED---- SO WEAR RED! ---

    Lest we Forget.

    im english and id have to say lots of things are better in scotland...their legal system is more flexible, and their troops are mental! :thumbsup:

    Thats a good story, an old one but a good one

    English are clearly the best also think that this is a good idea (the email) and definitely should go ahead, i know somebody that was in Afghanistan and has been injured, he had to have his left leg amputated, aged 21, and his best mate (only met him once before he went) was killed by a land mind, so im totally up for supporting the troops

    err....

    did anybody else click on the thread thinking this was a joke thread?!

    load of cr*p. When I was in the Army my ID card said British Army. Stop the pointless bickering about which part of the UK is best.

    lol changed it from melbourne to london

    More accurately, you tell your kids daddy is coming home and he does not … More accurately, you tell your kids daddy is coming home and he does not and is delayed and ends up on the doorstep at some ungodly hour weeks late, the kids don't know as you daren't tell them incase it changes oh and then they get dodgy looks for being in uniform and mostly don't come back through public terminals.Well meant but meh, not accurate.



    Sounds like the BNP trying to use public support for the armed forces for their own aims......a couple of generals have already written a open letter complaining about the BNP using British military symbolism for their (BNP) political purposes.

    .........and then the soldier got court martialed for loosing his walkie talkie....

    maybe the little girl was black!

    the BNP have no shame using these kind of tactics to win support

    What a load of sentimental twaddle from the OP.

    "The first thing a soldier says when asked 'What can we do to make things better for you?' is...'We need your support and your prayers'.."

    A likely request from a squaddie, would be more like "give us the kit to do our jobs" or "pull us out of this non war", or "wheres the nearest pub"

    The OP appears to support the BNP hotukdeals.com/ite…ime

    So their motives for posting this may not be to show support for the armed forces but more likely political reasons.

    More likely to have said "this bloody thing doesn't work - give me your mobile....... "


    PS can someone (or a Mod) explain to me why this site treats F-R-I-G-G-I-N-G as a swear word when censors on films replace the other f word with this one?

    exactly, they signed up to goto war, they get paid to do it, yes we should support them but i think this post is a load of mince

    My 7 year old would have known straight away that he was bluffing and asked to speak to me.

    No it's not at all, it's a spoof email that has been reworded probably … No it's not at all, it's a spoof email that has been reworded probably hundereds of times, even in that one sentence they use both the terms English and British so no real biggie just another oversight in a very inaccurate well false account.The army is the BRITSH Army and the Royal navy, Royal Air force, Royal Marines are British services, some people have read far too much into this tbh.Erm it's true and I know for the same reason I know your op was a load of crap personal experience



    well as stated its an email i did not wtite it. also i have friends in the army who openly support the bnp and i accualy asked him about it and he said a lot of them do. geuss what? he is still in the army hasnt been kicked out.

    anyway i dont want this to turn into a giant argument.....

    Even if "your mate" exists, he'll only get kicked out if he is a member of the BNP, which is different to voting for them or supporting them

    do you agree with the BNP long term goal of kicking out all non white people from the the UK?
