More news, no ads


A band of brothers from Whaplode are set to take their place in British Armed Forces history on Armistice Day tomorrow.

As the country observes a two-minute silence to commemorate the end of World War I, Sam (33), Jack (24) and George Fowler (22) will see their younger brother Joe (20) presented with his Green Beret and officially qualify as a Royal Marine.

The brothers, all of them former University Academy Holbeach students, will become only the fourth quartet from the same family to "pass out" in the 356-year history of the elite Commando Force, which is part of the Royal Navy.
