As we all sit down to our Christmas dinner I think we should all spare a thought to the family, friends and comrades of the Royal Marine who died last night in Afghanistan last night.  He, like thousands of others have given their lives so, we in Britain, can sit down to turkey and sprouts every year and live out lives in peace.  My prays, thoughts and heart goes to all those brave boys and girls who put themselves in harms way for this Country.  God bless you all.
