Today we would like to salute HM Royal Marines in their 350th year.

In 2014 the Corps of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines celebrate their 350th anniversary.  To commemorate this date, Royal Marines Commandos ski,'d, sailed, cycled, canoed and ran 6656km (circa 4136 miles). The aim was to encapsulate the Commando spirit and Corps values in a significant physical and mental challenge.

Today, we'd also like to salute

20. JOHN PEEL The man, the myth, and the song
Sidney Cole

D' ye ken John Peel with his coat so Gray
D' ye ken John Peel at the break of the day
D' ye ken John Peel when he's far far away
With his hounds and his horn in the morning

Twas the sound of his horn brought me from my bed
and the cry of his hounds he oft times led
For Peels veiw, hol-loa would waken the dead, 
Or a fox from his lair in the morning

A Cumberland Fox Hunter (No Horses or Toffs like the English) distantly related to my wife
