Lieutenant Colonel James Coote, commanding officer of 1 PWRR, said: “Despite daily danger and deprivation the men and women of the Afghan National Police have made a most significant contribution to transition. “We respect their courage; we admire their tenacity and we value their hospitality, generosity of spirit, friendship and, above all, ubiquitous sense of humour.” Regimental plaques were exchanged between the commanding officers of both regiments to mark the hand over.
The rest of the battalion, with the support of members of the Light Dragoons and Queens Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment, will be advising and mentoring police on the ground as Police Advisory Teams (PATs). It will be the second tour of Afghanistan for many of the regiment. Back in 2009, the Welsh Guards were involved in ferocious fighting in Operation Panther’s Claw, which was aimed at rooting out the Taliban from its strongholds ahead of the Afghan presidential elections. Two further companies from the Welsh Guards will also have a ground-holding role to allow governance to be put in place.
Rachel Bywater, Community Liaison Oficer is holding a launch day on 29th April at their new gift shop based in Market Mall, in the Pavilions Shopping Centre, Uxbridge. Topping the bill will be Mr John Miller (nephew of the late great Glen Miller) and his Orchestra. Art Forces Art UK will be the leading fundraiser for the Appeal with a target of £1 million to wealth fare for injured troops.
The new gift shop displays decor themed to the war years and the blitz, complete with sandbags and the wail of distant air raid sirens, and is packed with books, posters, replica ration books, photographs, newspapers of the time as well as period clothing. Senior shoppers can take a trip down memory lane, whilst the younger visitors can gain an education in history, following the life and times of their own grandparents.
Gift ideas include 1940′s kitchenware and shoppers can enjoy home baked cakes, afternoon tea and freshly made sandwiches in the Tearoom. All served in mismatched bone china just like in the war years! Three years after its launch in summer 2009, the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal is re-mobilising in anticipation of the Welsh Guards’ return to Afghanistan in March of this year. Much has been done to date to help Welsh Guardsmen and dependants in need of support, but we know that another tour inevitably means that others will need help, both for the short and long term.
Like any professional military unit lst Battalion Welsh Guards will face the challenges of its forthcoming operational tour with confidence and we can be sure that they will serve with distinction. While doing so they will take comfort from knowing that a truly effective support network is there for each of them and their dependants if needed – the Appeal is designed to help ensure that they get all the help they need.
Battalion Headquarters, Number Two Company and Support Company will all be training and mentoring the Afghan Police as the Police Mentoring and Advisory Group (PMAG), which will be commanded by the Commanding Officer, Lt Col Bossi. Attached to the PMAG will be D Squadron, Light Dragoons, and Number 1 Squadron, Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment. Elements of Headquarters Company, with Attached Arms, will run the Lashkar Gar Training Centre, which trains Afghan Police Patrolmen and Non Commissioned Officers.
How to cope with pain after losing someone loved
Life is a different experience for everyone, some might barely feel any pain while living, while others only know of that singular feeling. For those who have lost someone loved in their life, the second case might be much closer to the reality. However, you shouldn't allow yourself to cope with inner pain too long, and find something in life that will lift you up and help you get back on your feet. One of those things could be some adult entertainment, which would, for sure, make you happier. However, one cannot always just start having this kind of fun and feeling this joy. First, you will need to find a lady from a Sex Zürich scene that will give you all of that.
Support for families of dead soldiers
No one deserves your gratitude more than the soldiers who fought for your country and saved it from the enemies. Unfortunately, many of them lost their lives, but in those cases, it is their families that deserve your gratitude. A wonderful lady whom you can find on the Sex Zürich website AND6 will be more than happy to help you to show your appreciation. The Welsh guard Afghanistan appeal is just one of the organizations and ways to do so. A little adult entertainment wouldn't be minded, as well, so share it with whomever you can.
At this moment there are thousands of injured soldiers all over the world. Some of them may not even be able to work and keep caring for themselves and their families, but you can help them. An escort from the Sex Zürich platform would be interested in this, as well, so make sure to include her in the program. It is not financial support that these families need, but the help to cope with the pain after they lose their loved ones. Make sure to be a part of that process and help them deal, because you will have their gratitude. The Sex Zürich niche might not be the best place to take them, but it is always a good place for you to relax or even come with the pain.
