THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON!

Ram British Army

‘Lance corporal’ Derby the ram, the regimental mascot of the 2nd Battalion The Mercian Regiment, who attended parades, fundraisers and recruiting events as part of his duties, has finally died, and will shortly be ‘formerly’ cremated in a manner that befits all ex-army mascots. Delivered to an army cookhouse, the ram will prop up an assortment of mixed vegetables and slid into the oven on gas mark 6. And that’s how the British Army treats ex-soldiers!
