... Comments

On the 4 November 2010 four teams of serving and ex-serving individuals from each of Her Majesty's Armed Forces will begin an epic 'March For Honour'. 

Starting in four separate locations across the UK, the teams will dedicate and speed-march a mile for every British military life lost on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. Wearing military uniform, each team will march an average of around 30 miles a day and a total distance of up to 250 miles, carrying forty pounds of equipment.

The teams will unite along the route before marching into London on 11 November to deliver the Book of Remembrance to the Royal Albert Hall for The Royal British Legion's National Festival of Remembrance. Their target is to raise £1 million for The Royal British Legion who work so hard to support the welfare, interests and memories of serving and ex-serving forces, and their families.

The four teams will unite at Wotton Bassett on Sunday 7th November. They then march to Newbury on Tuesday 9th November, with an overnight stop in Newbury, before marching on to Windsor Castle on Wednesday 10th November.

They deserve our support please give generously by logging on to:
