Military Picture of the Week

Four teams of former and current Service (UK) personnel have begun the 'March For Honour' to pay tribute to those lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. The teams have all begun their marches from different areas of the UK in honour of every British military life lost on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. Wearing military uniform, each team will march around 30 miles (48km) a day and a total distance up to 250 miles (400km) carrying 40 pounds (18kg) of equipment. The teams will unite and march into London on 11 November 2010 to deliver the Book of Remembrance to the Royal Albert Hall. They aim to raise £1m for the Royal British Legion.
