Happy St Patricks Day, to my family, friends and colleagues born in Ireland.
The rest of you, be away with yourselves - Plastic Paddys indeed!
To have the honour to be invited to the Sergeants Mess of a battalion of the Irish Guards today, is a supreme test of one's endurance and capacity for drink !!!
I can hear my father now whistling or humming the first three tracks - Let Erin Remember, St Patricks Day and Old Comrades
