    True Expression of Brotherhood




    Moving testimony to the British army's loss of life in Afghanistan
    The promise I had to keep: to wear a dress at my fallen friend's funeral

    Three years ago, they had agreed that Delaney would wear a dress – the brighter, the better – if Elliott was killed in a action. Their unusual covenant would be realised sooner than either could have expected; private Elliott died last month the victim of a Taliban ambush in Afghanistan.
    Dead soldier's friend tells why a funeral dress was the only way to honour him | UK news | The Observer

    A greater respect cannot be shown than to honor a promise.

    Silence is better than conflict in this type of thread, I think.

    I have three times started longer posts in this thread and lost them so I will keep this one short. Why would there be conflict? The sentiment behind your post is understood wWe just do not go on for mawkish sentimentality that's all. No one would have said anything to elliot and anyone laughing or making comment would have been told. Quiet anger and pride is how most scots view their soldiers, anger at the situation they are in and the pride has always been there.

    At least no one pointed out the pall bearers wearing skirts as well.
