This retirement lark's not easy
There's no gain without the pain
It can't be (golf) and (gardening)
Your knees won't stand the strain

JB c 2004


You're not the retiring kind
This is just the beginning
Of a new and exciting chapter
May it bring greater personal fulfilment
Than you ever thought possible

Have a very long and happy retirement


You earned it
Now enjoy it


On your well deserved retirement

And we wish you happiness in the years ahead

Let the bugle blow
Let the march be played
With the forming of the troops
For your last parade

Let the bugle blow...
Fire the evening gun...
Slowly lower the colours...
Your retirement has begun
