Congrats Uncle Robert
While looking through my emails, I found one from my mum sent last week which I should have read more carefully when it arrived. Unfortunately, however, things are just too hectic at the moment.
In the email, mum says that her younger brother will be receiving his CBE on 22 June 2005 from the Queen at Buckingham Palace in recognition of his role in the largest re-equipment (or something) of the British Army in recent times.
This will go nicely with the OBE he received as the British Colonel responsible for UNPROFOR logistics operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina during 1993. Anyway, congrats Uncle Robert. Not that you probably read this blog...
