Respect to you young lady, you are a credit to your sadly departed husband, your family & the Parachute Regiment

JJ ...
Nice one Jay

RW ...Very nice one Jay

From Major General (Retd) Chip Chapman CB

"It is typical of Jay Hyrons, and the '100 Year Challenge Initiative' that the wife of a decorated fallen hero from Goose Green in the Falklands war, does not merely sit on her hands, but seeks to do something positive and to triumph over her own adversities for a philanthropic purpose for the greater good. Please support her work that mirrors the Airborne Initiative shown in action by LCpl Gary Bingley MM."

From Lynda Bellingham RIP

"I want to add my congratulations to Jay but also ask that everyone remember those wonderful people who gave their lives. Be it 100 years or a thousand years they will not be forgotten ever. Kind regards."

Today was Jay's continued pursuit of 100 miles walking renown Airborne training routes. Today the canal and Long Valley incorporating the infamous Engineer bridges and Mile Hill. Rounded off with a curry and a pot of tea. Bearing in mind Jay flatlined and had to be zapped to bring her back less than six weeks ago, this was a remarkable achievement

Thanks to the lovely Lonnie & Mo Donoghue

Run across the top girders, monkey swing underneath, run back to camp soaking wet. Great days.
