Colonel Tim Collins has joined our #IRemember campaign with a moving tribute to the SAS Trooper 'Legs' Lane, a member of the famed Bravo Two Zero patrol who died while trying to evade capture in Iraq in January 1991.
 
Col Collins, best known for his 2003 eve-of-battle speech in Kuwait, shared his memories of Trooper Lane, whom he had served alongside earlier in his career.
 
"We were the same age and we both had young sons," said Col Collins. "It's hard to believe the years have gone by."
 
If you'd like to join our #IRemember campaign in the run-up to Armistice Day you can post brief tributes to relatives or loved ones who served our country, using the #IRemember hashtag on social media. 
 
They might have seen action in either World War, they might have served in peacetime, they might have been killed in action or lived a long and happy life after leaving the forces; they might not have served in uniform but supported the war effort in another way. It's up to you to remember whoever you choose.
