WHO DARES TINS:  SAS hero Andy McNab backs the Sun’s Pounds for Poppies appeal

Andy, who was a sergeant in 22 SAS Regiment and is now a best-selling author, met ex-Royal Marine Commando Harris Tatakis to show why you should back our appeal.

SAS hero Andy McNab believes our Pounds for Poppies appeal deserves top honours.

What a brilliant idea to raise money to help armed forces veterans and their families through hard times.
By dropping an old quid into a collecting box you can help the British Legion help veterans like Harris.

Andy McNab talks about one of the most defining moments in any soldiers life.


It’s not about Andy McNab and it’s not a recent video. But I just came across it and it’s so moving that I do still want to post it.

You see members of the 2nd and 1st Battalion Royal New  Zealand Infantry Regiment perform the ancestral war cry to show their  collective grief at the deaths of Corporal Luke Tamatea, Lance Corporal  Jacinda Baker and Private Richard Harris. They were killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2012. R.I.P.

The haka is a traditional war cry or dance  originally performed by Maori warriors before battle and is characterised by  vigorous arm movements, stamping of the feet and rhythmically shouted  accompaniment.

Today, haka form a crucial part of ceremonies  for dignitaries to create a sense of occasion.
