  1. The Royal Hospital is a great place for former soldiers. They get companionship and good care, and more importantly, respect. I am very glad that it is still going strong, and making places for veterans of more modern conflicts. A very moving clip Sarah, modest and unassuming men who had seen the terrors of WW1.
    Best wishes, Pete.
