My wife and I spent a really pleasant afternoon today with friends who we had not seen for a good dozen years at least. We had been friends throughout much of our army careers sharing highs and lows.
From the moment that we met it was just as if we had never been apart and I think we all realised what a unique set of experiences we shared in the army. It brought people together and forged a bond which stands the test of time.
I know that it won't ever again be a dozen years!
