Fortunately, I have a few photographic memories I can fall back on from last year, supplied by a brilliant Estonian photographer, to keep me in fighting spirit until next year.
Unfortunately, as I used to be in the SAS and I used to be a terrible liar, the regiment have asked me to protect the innocent by masking a few key identities in the photographs below:
