Quotes

"It was a good field this year, and it's always good to beat the best guys."
"I started by getting in touch with the Place Names Committee and at their request I wrote them a screed about who Jack Ross was" Nicholson said
His handler Pony Major Corporal Mark Wilkinson said: "Cruachan IV prefers his pal to be with him. We had both on the opening of the General Assembly. The old fellow could be heard "neighing" for his pal a quarter of a mile away during the parade."
...It says: "This NCO showed outstanding bravery and devotion to duty... His courage and leadership were an example to all ranks. He rallied a large number of the men of his Company when the officers were wounded and in spite of very heavy enemy fire pressed home the attack to a successful conclusion."
