Everybody loves a man in uniform

The Household cavalry has celebrated its first gay wedding.

One groom wore ceremonial uniform with his Iraq medal, the other morning dress with an orchid. Surrounded by silverware and paintings commemorating great battles, Lance Corporal James Wharton, 23, and his new husband enjoyed their first dance to Tina Turner in the warrant officers’ mess of the most prestigious regiment in the land.

RIP Iain Elliott

I didn’t know Iain all that well, so feel underqualified to say anything directly. However, a lot of the people I care about are affected by his passing, so it seems fair to say that we’ve lost another of the good guys.

I believe there are going to be charity collections held in Iain’s memory. I shall be helping out at them as much as I can.
