Holidays!

Many of you will be on holiday over this end-of-year period and so will we! We’d like to take this occasion to wish all our readers a Happy Christmas for those of you to whom it means something and Happy Holidays for those of you to whom it doesn’t.

To all of you we wish a peaceful, healthy and happy 2016. We will be back on 4th January and meanwhile my ancestry comes to the fore on these occasions and I couldn’t resist this photo I found on the British Army’s Facebook page of a “Tommy” with his can of Christmas Pudding. I’m off to cook mine!
