Re: preston march past 12/7/15

Final word on this so that everyone understands the situation. 1) It was the Colonel of the Regiment's decision to close down HHQ (N); 2) Steve Penkethman has done a great job keeping it open so far; 3) The press article omitting any reference to 1420H was issued by the Army Press Office; 4) The Lan...

Re: preston march past 12/7/15

If they received the information from Fullwood Bks, then it is a fair assumption thatthe info would have come from the assassin, sent in to shut it down so not to be trusted.
