General Sir John Learmont KCB CBE, QM-General of the Army (rtd)

‘It is a great honour to be invited to be an Ambassador for the Pilgrim Bandits Charity. I have nothing but the highest admiration for the courage and determination shown by so many of our badly wounded servicemen and women. For me this is exemplified by the spirit of adventure and refusal to give in to adversity shown by L/Bdr Ben Parkinson, whom I have been privileged to meet and whose CO in 7 Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery was my youngest son James. I salute Ben and all who are members of the Pilgrim Bandits Charity and marvel at their exploits.’
