My nephew came home from Afghanistan yesterday, safe and sound. He never needs to go back.

Thank god.

In fact, below is an e-mail my sister has just sent me. I think once you've read it you'll understand why she got teary.


Oh, I'm a very proud and emotional mummy today! Toby got home about 7 last night, loaded down with stuff. He has a medal with his name and Afghanistan on and a tiny one which the army gives to children of serving soldiers which made me cry, it's got the logo of his regiment (11 in Roman numerals and a tiger) and "my daddy is a hero" on the other side. He's got a shield which the batallion leader had made for all of them and also has a citation which is the equivalent of being mentioned in dispatches! He's the only junior NCO in this entire tour to get it! No wonder I'm tearful. He was promoted while he was away, he is now a Corporal, the next step is Sergeant.
