The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Parade

Nothing to do with toy soldiers, more to do with real ones!  I've just got back (yes at gone 1am) from parading down at Windsor in front of Her Majesty.  Quite honestly this was one of the greatest experiences of my life.  I am incredibly proud to have been one of the 2,500 Service Personnel parading today.  In the end it was absolutely worth the 4am starts, chaffing, dehydration, sore muscles, hours of uniform prep, questionable food and a total of something like 24 hours spent on coaches; absolutely and completely worth it.

If Facebook is to be believed then I made the cut on TV and I'm going to have to get the cakes in at work next week!  In the meantime I think that I need to consider some Albertine Forces under the command of the then Princess Elizabeth.

Anyway, it's time for a very much needed shower and some even more needed sleep!  Normal rambling about models and painting will resume soon.
