A Short Life Well Lived -- Update on A Hero

The funeral for PFC Stephen Bicknell, 2 Btn, 505 Regt, 82 AB Div., was held today. It was a fine ceremony. I wish I had pictures of the numbers of people lining the funeral procession's route to the cemetary. Most of the town turned out to bid him farewell, waving flags and doffing their caps. The odious insects from Westboro Baptist Church failed to show, which was a wise move on their part.
