A-Walting I will go

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by whiffler, Aug 4, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Chasps

    It's that time of year when Whiffler & a couple of colleagues hit the continent for prolonged intake of beer, food, beer, bizarre conversations, beer, food, beer and beer.

    Last year (early Sept) this ritual coincided with several bands (all playing Highland Fcuking Cathedral) from france, wales, essex, US Navy, Belgium and hordes of WW2 military vehicles. A range of enthusiats, veterans and walts were in evidence and the weather was hot, hot, hot - to which the answer was beer, beer, beer. During one said beer found next table was occupied by members of the Belgian Military Band (formerly Mil, now mostly civvy attached), including Adolf Hitler on trombone. Maybe it was the beer, but 'next time' there'll be photographic evidence.

    Considering doing the same again if the event is on in the same place, understand it was formerly based at Béthune but now Souchez (nearer to Vimy).

    If anyone knows more details I'd be happy with a PM if you don't want to draw Walt-flack.
