Thank you for all your hard work Mark.
Just one correction. "Footy" is never a term for rugby.
Footy refers to the lesser sport of football, where overpaid prima donnas ponce around with a ball and scream if another player touches them.
Whereas Rugby is the name of Gods own game, where hard men engage in robust physical contact with other men.
Reading that last sentence back, it could easily be taken two ways.
A bit like footballers really.
Oh my gosh, one of the Queen's Guardsman, his mother is only 42 years old. 18 years old, has a role in one of the most historical events ever, and then he drops dead. I probably saw the kid on the Tv watching coverage of the funeral. I would like to know what happened to the one Guardsman that passed out on the platform while actually guarding the casket?
Interesting the UK seems to fail to report age in their obits. Is this normal?
