Quote of the day:
"Today provides an opportunity for thanks, and a recognition of the dedication and risks faced by those serving our nation. We also have cause to thank veterans, who continue to contribute to our way of life, long after they leave the Armed Forces.
"Having had members of my family serve in each of the Armed Services, I know only too well of the pride service personnel take in their duty.
"As your Commander-in-Chief, I send my warmest best wishes to you all, your families, and the entire Armed Forces community."


HM The Queen

Joke of the day:
A pirate captain is about to pillage a Royal Navy ship.

He calls to his aide, "Bring me my red coat!" When the aide asks why, he says, "If I get shot, the men won't see it and will keep on fighting." The aide praises the captain's intelligence and fetches the jacket. Then, as soon as they are about to attack, a lookout yells, "Captain, we just realized that there are in fact 20 enemy ships!" The captain suddenly goes very pale and calls, "Bring me my brown pants."
