    Hi Neil

    all the times we have attended St David's day the association has provided a coach from Maindy barracks to convey members to wherever the Bn were as B K is no longer around and using the chain of command so to speak and this has not been mentioned to date am I jumping the gun and things are in hand or is it not it would be a pity if this facility was withdrawn if I remember rightly we paid £5 Per person to help with the cost of the coach., this is done on a first come first served basis with numbers and vehicle registration for parking within Maindy barracks through branch secretaries then would forwarded on to B K but now it would be you or Mal but perhaps Martin could help as he his based in Cardiff but this would only be so should a coach be provided.

     

                                                                           Regards Larry

      Larry, no reprimand intended, in fact I was laughing too much to type properly.  There is a lot to do, and to be very honest the records and SOPs are not well documented, so any prompts and advice are most welcome.

      My response was tongue in cheek Larry, absolutely no upset or offence taken in anything whatsoever (don't think you could upset me if you wanted to :P)

       

      I never shared an office with BK and probably only met him about ten times since I've been in the job (since January) and then probably for a maximum of 2 hours each time and as you quite rightly say he was not particularly forthcoming with information and this event is no different!   

       

      Mal & Neil have their work cut out, with no handover (or notes) whatsoever and very little "on record" stuff to refer to, they have a mountain to climb which will be made all the more easier with the support of all of us and the wider WGA.

       

      But, with the recce yesterday and decisions now made and two top men (Mal & Neil) steering the WGA ship, I am pretty sure St David's Day in Brecon next year will be an event not to be missed (and pretty sure there will be a coach from Cardiff :wavegif:)

      That's the  Spirit, Onwards and Upwards. and lets make it as Martin said an event not to be missed:salute:

    Nick, whilst going through the AGA office in Cardiff yesterday I came across a CD from the CWGC with 2 spreadsheets giving the name number cause of death, cemetery and plot details for all WG WW1 & 2 casualties buried in Commonwealth war graves.  I though they may be useful to you.  Do you want me to send them to you?

     

    Kind rgards

      Hello Jenks good to hear from you.

       

      Can you, or anyone else please put me on the route to a Wreath for Sunday? IF possible please?

      Kind Regards!

      Alan.

      @Alan Speake I will be in Maindy tomorrow morning around 11am if that is any good to you? Or I can leave a wreath for you at the guard kiosk to collect at a later time?  Brian Keane never mentioned anything about wreaths.
