Good evening everyone,

I'll start tonight with two bits of news, the British Legion in Neley has closed and is up for sale, there is a memorial plaque or tablet in there that I haven't been able to see as it is boarded up, I was able to get hold of a representative of the company selling it and inform him of its presence and if possible save it, well unless its already been moved.

The other is the D Day memorial in Royal Victoria Park has been vandalised by people using stone to carve there names into the slates, I am not an expert but there appeared to be damage to the slate due to this. A local Parish councillor who I have just been talking to has just gone to the police station to report it as neither of us could get through on 101.

Other than those bitsnot a lot has been happening. Tomorrow I aim to get Netley Military cemetery done and out of the way, that will be Hampshire nearly done, oh, and I found another gold postbox in Hamble-Le-Rice :)
