Any idea who this is

I regularly do both of those too, but often take a short cut via Klan Lane and Lynching tree Avenue.

Ah, yes, up by Burning Cross Green.
 
At the attacks on police at the cenotaph this afternoon.

Very suspicious photo.

Assuming that he’s wearing his own uniform, I’m going to posit that Cpl Hockley is a VM, Storeman or possibly metalsmith. As pointed out upthread, only R SIGNALS wore nametags, and the particular one he’s wearing is from the German supplier. There were only two, and they used different what we would now call fonts on the tags. Lancashire Pleating Company in UK made the UK-based ones and the PRIs in Germany had a contract with a Boxhead company. His tag is of the latter type.

He probably served with a R SIGNALS unit at some point, and the RSM made the LAD wear nametags. Clearly he’s also been to an AAC unit or REME Ac Wksp. We had our own “tels techs”, so he’s not one of those, and R SIGNALS LADs would have no use for any kind of Air Tech.

All of which surprises me, because if he’s been to a R SIGNALS unit, he’d have been well-versed in ironing JHWs, and those shoulder pads are in fvcking rag order, as is the rest of the jersey.

As an infantry unit we at one time had name tags. Fashion and the CO.

He hasn't ironed his combats. A ******* disgrace of a soldier.

I wonder if his porn collection is in his placky bag?
Ironing combats? Were you a Scaley?
 
Ffs...you are all missing the point...

He is a Gwaaaar.

He could be wearing The Household cavalry's finest rig, bulled boots and...a fecking tiara but...

There would not be any point in the exercise...

Piggy eyes, negligible eyebrows, pink skin, lack of wedding ring ...

No wonder he kept hold of his daily working rig...

What a shower of shit but....

He's your shower of shit :)
 
There's a brief interview with this clown somewhere in the press.

He hadn't been drinking, that's not his can. He's holding it for a mate, and it's empty.

He didn't want to chuck it on the floor (what with all the blood, snot and broken glass that was likely to be littering the place by the end of the day) so he was marching with it until he found a suitable bin.

So there.

That's the problem with you lot.

You just jump to the conclusion that he's a dickhead.

No explanation for the fancy dress outfit though.
