Please take a few minutes to read the following, I am in the Army and work in welfare. My Regiment is currently serving in Afghanistan, and I received the following message on Saturday morning on the way to Wembley.

On Friday 25 May a vehicle that was protecting a combat logistic patrol in Helmand Province of Afghanistan was involved in an explosive incident. The commander of the vehicle, Corporal ‘Shaggy' Selvey, suffered a fracture to his lower right leg and the driver, Private David Poole, suffered a fracture to his lower left leg.

Corporal Selvey and Private Poole were moved by helicopter from the scene of the incident to the field hospital at Camp Bastion. I am delighted to report that all three soldiers are doing well and remain very positive – they are a credit to the Regiment and we are all tremendously proud of them.

Corporal Selvey and Private Poole returned to the UK on Sunday morning where they are being assessed at the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine (RCDM) Birmingham.

Corporal Selvey is from Taunton and is a dedicated Bristol City Fan. He is expected to remain in hospital for at least the next ten days or so.

Private Poole is from ulster and a dedictaed Manchester United Fan, he is expected to remain in hospital a bit longer than Corporal Selvey.

I will be visiting Private Poole and Corporal Selvey this week, if any of you would like to send a message of good luck please leave it here, I will print them off and pass them onto him.

Thank you for taking time to read this, and your nice words are very appriciated.

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

much love from the north of scotland
