Baxterbear waves goodbye to the Coldstream Guards at Wellington Barracks – Buttons in Twos’

coldstream guards 21/01/2010 BUTTONS IN TWO’S FOREWORD “It has been an honour to have Baxterbear join us on our monumental march from Coldstream to London. His support to soldiers is ‘second to none’ and to us who marched it brought us closer to our brother Coldstreamers who are fighting in Afghanistan. The support that Baxterbear has given has a direct effect on those who are injured or affected by war through ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and other service charities. We all carried a small Baxterbear on our day-sacks throughout our march to show our support to him. We were delighted to see that many children, most whose loved ones were serving abroad, had also decided to carry them on their schoolbags. “In a similar way to Baxterbear, I am amazed at the incredible things that people can do when they believe and trust in themselves; but more importantly when it improves the trust and belief that one can have in others. ‘Buttons in Two’s’ tells the tale of physical adversity, friendship and trust with our fellow soldiers and of course Baxterbear” J W COLEBY Major Officer Commanding Number Seven Company Check out the BBC New story here. _AAA8614_2
