HIGHWAY OF HEROES.

 

 

A country road upon which the bodies of repatriated soldiers begin their final journey could be renamed Highway of Heroes if a petition succeeds.

 

Hundreds of people regularly line the streets of Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire, to honour the soldiers brought to the town along the A3102 from RAF Lyneham.

 

The petition on the 10 Downing Street website, set up by ex-Para George Ryan who wants to re-christen the route, has more than 750 names.

 

The soldiers who fell in Iraq and Afghanistan are taken along the three-mile road into the town where residents, shopkeepers and members of the British Legion pay their respects.

 

The petition proposes to "rename the stretch of road (A3102) between RAF Lyneham and Wootton Bassett Highway of Heroes to honour all those of our military who have given their lives in the service of their country".

 

The idea originates from Canada, after a road between an Ontario air base and Toronto received the same title last year..

Done.

Excellent idea.

 

i dont get this country. we seem to be one of the few countries that dont really seem bothered about respecting our military, or honouring anything they have done.

It's about time it changed. If our government deem it necessary to send them in the first place, then they should bloody well deem it necessary to look after them when they come home ( alive or not ).

Sorry about the lecture folks, but this is a subject close to my heart, cus my Dad ( god bless him ) and his four brothers all fought in ww2, and apart from medals, got stuff all else for the honour.


Please note that although my advice is offered, you should consult your legal representative before taking ANY action.

 

 

have a nice day !!

I have no legal training and the advice I offer is a matter of support. Before you commit to any Legal action you are advised to contact a qualified legal practitioner.

------------------------------------------------

Bank charge successes:

Halifax - Full settlement incl interest.

HSBC - Settlement, goodwill no admission of liability about 75% of claim.

RBS - Settlement, goodwill no admission of liability about 70% of claim.

2 ongoing claims for bank charges with HSBC with more to come. (Supreme Court ruling could have upset these claims) They did :mad:

PPI Successes

PPI 4 settlements on 9 loans. FOS involvement on 7 added on the 8 % Statutory interest another 30% to both.

2 claims settled in full with LV without FOS involvement.

2 claims settled in full with HSBC without FOS involvement

 

PPI Claims ongoing with:

Cap one Now with the FOS

Barclays. Paid up today 24/04/10 cheque received for over £4,500 and in the bank.

LTSB still have to decide on this as their SAR production was abysmal. Papers data mixed up documents missing etc

 

1 Complaint not upheld by FOS they said it was ICO issue. Complaint upheld by ICO. See this..

Post 290 from

***RBS PPI Claim Long fight but, WON***

 

Please do not PM me for advice as it may be sometime before I can respond.

 

Keep at them. Do not give way and do not accept all they tell you, they will delay and stall for as long as they can to prevent repaying you your mis-sold PPI.

Sorry, but I can't sign. It's not that I think the military do not deserve such a thing, merely that it sounds so, well, American and superficial.

 

We already have a central memorial to which we pay tribute to those who have died - the war memorial in London. We also have many such memorials around the country.

 

I think it would be far more fitting to ensure the covenant between the military and government is respected - namely by the government. Military training is being sold of to private consortiums at huge cost and detriment to the military - effectively privatisation in the name of "bringing jobs" to south wales (which it wont) and of cost effectiveness (which it isn't - the cost of the deal has been far exceeded before anything has even been signed).

 

More decisive decisions and petitions need to be made than the renaming of a road in my view.

I think enough is enough, I am heartily sick of seing our boys being brought back draped in the union jack...most of them young men and theyve given thier lives...what for? I think it is time to cut our losses.....withdraw after nepalming all the poppy fields and let the Afghans and Iraqis get on with it...obviously they dont want our help why force it on them?

 

I know that is probably a very simplistic view but how many more of our young boys must die and to what end..its not like we are still winning hearts and minds over there?


Advice given is my opinion only, I am not a legal or financial expert (far from it).

Bump it up, and for god's sake, PLEASE get a petition going to give troops the equipment they need to do the job asked of them.

 

That way, we may not need to have a road to carry so many casualties.

 

One of my best friends is serving in Afghanistan. If he's coming home in a body bag, I'd rather it be due to him doing his job than because the vehicle he was traveling in was inadequate against the weapons used over there.

 

That is his own sentiment. He actually said last week to his family and me:

"I'd rather be shot defending people from d***heads than be blown up by those d***heads [Labour / MOD / government] who can't be arsed buying some decent APCs"

Btw - APC I believe means Armoured Personnel Carrier (tanks to thee an me). Read a few back issues of Private Eye, they tell everything without the political bias.
