On behalf of the MOD’s LGBT+ Network, and all MOD personnel who marched, thank you for your support to our participation in Pride In London this year. The support that you and your colleagues gave in transporting the marching band to and from London (and within the parade area) was invaluable. I would especially like to thank your driver on the day, Martin, who was exceptional. Martin was absolutely unflappable despite all the pressures of navigating road closures, revellers and other (less patient and professional) drivers in a busier-than-usual central London. He was courteous, personable, and accommodating and he kept in close touch with us throughout to reassure us regarding drop-offs and pick-ups. In short, both his driving and his client-facing skills were first-rate.
