  • Cav Charity

    62nd Cav on Grafton St and at the Spire today with a couple of panards collecting for charity!

    fair dues!

    do any other units get involved in this type of work?

    * a passer by commented that they should use the money collected to get decent armoured cars!*

    The 2nd FAR did it a few months ago with help from the 62 FAR, storied from a good source say that a tree hugging hippy was really offended that the army was collecting for just 1 charity and why they weren't collecting for the people being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, some people are just nuts

      Gun Pushes have always been popular for charity.

      Panhard pushes however are more necessity than novelty..

              Yes, there is a DF charity, called the Defence Forces Benevolent Fund. This is used to
              assist former members of the DF who have fallen on hard times...

                C Coy 56 Bn IN Boyle did a stretcher run around Co. Roscommon last year and raised over 10k for telethon. One of our Lt.s (the organiser) from the coy was interviewed on the programme on telethon night in fact he was in DPM uniform with a Sgt and were the only military on programme that night!

                    Not one of my best I am afraid but at least it tells a story. Now that is not the actual group involved in the run however. The chief did not come with us. All in pic are or were in our company or its predecessor prior to re org.

                          None taken of course thats the answer! But what I really meant was well done and you did something I would never think of Google. Adds the bit of class to disc. Well done mod.

                            Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
                            Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
                            The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
                            The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
                            The best lack all conviction, while the worst
                            Are full of passionate intensity.
