Lions ready to roarMillwall's first team will this afternoon pay a unique tribute to all the men and women who have, and still continue to, lose their lives in the service of this nation and its allies.
The Lions team will be wearing a unique commemorative camouflage kit (see above gallery), sanctioned by the Football League, for this Sky Bet Championship fixture with Brentford. Many fans in the stands will be sporting similar replica kits too.
The beneficiary of funds raised from sales of this kit is the Headley Court Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre in Surrey.
Millwall chairman John Berylson said: "I am very proud that we are able to support members of the Armed Forces who have put themselves on the line in the call of duty. Anyone who saw the video ('Millwall Football Club Remember' on youtube.com/millwallfcofficial) cannot fail to have been moved by it, and I know our guys, Alan Dunne, Lee Martin, Scott McDonald and Angel Martinez were in awe of the individuals they met on their visit to Headley Court." Captain Gary Wallace, Headley Court's Senior Military Liaison Officer, added: "
As I come to the end of my 18 month tour as the Senior Military Liaison Officer at Headley Court, I am constantly reminded of the high level of generosity and support shown by the British public to our injured service personnel being treated at our rehabilitation centre.
"It is personally very rewarding for me that Millwall Football Club have produced such an original and fine example of public support to all our patients by wearing the Headley Court shirt the day before Remembrance Sunday."
