100 Days toi the Lymbic Games - The Woodentops Horseguards Photo


Mrs S. pinged this on the Army facebook page today.

I'm looking for some indication of how it plays with everyone else.

My immediate response was in 2 parts:

(a) I bet they spent chuffing hours practicing for that pic. Time that could have been spent substantially more valuably (assuming that is possible for a public dooties mob garrisoned in The Smoke.

(b) It's not a bad looking publicity shot, though.

(c) But they coulda done it with 3 blokes in uniform, and Photoshop.

(d) But then they would've devalued the photo . . . maybe.

Still can't make up my mind. Interested to hear other reactions (even if they include **** off, you old fossil)


Holy Jesus, what an utter waste of time, energy and pixels. How many man hours were spent in producing that piece of dross? Which licker of Coe's Olympic rings came up with the bright idea? Was it someone at Princess Productions? They have form for crap ideas.
If they are putting all these extra soldiers on duty for "security" who in turn is going to provide the extra policing for when they go on the inevitable "oooo we're in london" olympics piss ups?
I think they do their fair share.
You misunderstand me. I'm certain they do their share. I respect their competence and I think they have better things to do than spend countless hours bulling, shining and polishing in order to stand in nice shiney patterns at stupid o'clock one grey dismal morning.

I thought it might have been a scale model done by some Asperger's suffering OCD military modeller. It isn't. The horror.

How many Ruperts are in that?
