This is the first time I've managed to apply to do it, last couple I've either been out of the country or unable to get leave.

I'm buzzing for it, can't wait!

I was the same mate. Always seemed to come at a busy time.
I managed to take a season ticket while I was at Lossie, but all my other posts where too difficult shift wise or honking to travel from.

I'm considering Lossie just for that reason mate, :D I'm at Brize and it's about 7 hours drive (worth it, but it's still a trek).

You getting on the pitch or just in the stand on uniform? Was lucky enough to get to do it two years running and never felt so proud to be a member of the forces.

Enjoy your day, Armed Forces day at Ibrox is one of the perks I still miss from the RAF.

I'm doing something at halftime.

I'm looking forward to it. What did you do in the RAF?

I've said this before. But here goes, please Rangers, no more appeasement of the haters and denying our brave servicemen and women the opportunity to walk on to the hallowed turf. The adulation we have for them should be displayed for all to see.

They are heroes and deserve a heroes welcome.

These days have been some of the best days at Ibrox - yet we have succumbed to the republican filth that hate this country and our soldiers so much.

Ignore Alex Thomson and the anti-British Scum, I hope our Board take note. A handful of representative heroes will not suffice. Whether it's a dignified march around the track or on the pitch - our soldiers deserve a heroes welcome.

We are back and we are The Rangers. No more appeasing the hoardes.

I remember posting the following on the old board. 6 or 7 years ago. Can hardly believe it was that long. But I kept it for sentimental reasons:

My youngest wrote a story that I just read tonight.

He never told me about it - but I discovered it in his work book at Parent's Night. I nearly cried when I read it. He's been an ST holder for over 5 years and I never thought of the impact this day last year had on him until tonight.

Not word perfect - it was very short, but it went something like this:

_____________

My Dad and I went to Ibrox. The soldiers were on the pitch and they came down from the roof. We clapped them and were quiet for the ones that didnt come home. We got our photo taken with them.

They are the bravest people I have ever met and it was the best day of my life.

___________

We will not let this legacy end.

What are the plans mate. Is there anything pre match and/or a military band at half time?
There is the RAF and central Scotland pipes and drums performing outside megastore before the game and at half time, Military stands and vehicles will be at fanzone prior to game.
RAF abseil from roof and get match ball.

At half time there will be a banner display by members of the forces and the pipes and drums,that's pretty much it.
