Thank you to our armed forces yet again.

The armed forces have been decimated over quite a few years. This cud be a wake up call.

You are a great bunch! Don’t forget the TA they are in the front line too

When you're looking after other people please don't forget to look after yourself and your own families

Government needs to remember this when this is over, they need to stop cutting the forces and do a big recruitment drive along with better training and equipment. They always turn out when need no matter where or what they have to do for very little money. Stay safe

Stay safe , make sure yous have the proper PPE , yous all matter xx
