Quotes

Royal Marine sergeant and founder of Nowzad Dogs, Pen Farthing, said: "When you're on the ground you're part of a bigger picture that you don't always get to see when you're in the thick of warfare."
He said: "I know people see us in our full leathers and think we're an intimidating bunch – but really we're just a group of old men and women doing what we can to raise awareness of the centenary year."
"But to the Government it is just numbers and they don’t care. All they have sacrificed is money."
He said: "We seek permission to appeal on the grounds the conviction was unsafe by virtue of the possibility he was convicted by a simple majority verdict."
