  1. Good Afternoon,

    I work with a theatre company and we are putting on a production of Shakespeare's Henry V. We are setting it in a desert warfare setting. We are looking for a company that hires out SA80's, some pistols and maybe something bigger.

    Does anybody know of such a company?

    We have tried Howarth Wrightson Ltd who cannot help us on this occasion.

    Any help would be very much appreciated


  2. You know they didn't have any 'SA80's in the 1400s don't you?

    They were still using the Martini-Henry back then and good examples are a bugger to get hold of. Pity, cos any of us could have nicked a few SA80's for you.
  5. Will David Cameron be able to sort this out??

    Can I be the South African geezer who turns out to be a kraut?

    I like the name Quayle.

    Edited to add: Actually scratch that, which one gets to knob Sylvia Sims in the end? I'll be him.

    Don't invest too much money in production costs - it sounds totally shiite........

    I think it sounds quite jolly.

    Brigadier James Chiswell: If little faults proceeding on distemper shall not be winked at, how shall we stretch our eye, when capital crimes, chewed, swallowed and digested appear before us?

  12. No it sounds shiters Dukey - it's all wrong acting it out in modern desert camo etc. After all Henry V depicts a popular, winnable war...

    He wasn't actually a saffer though was he? He was a kraut pretending to be a saffer. It's perfectly conceivable that a kraut could get to England in 1400, especially a **** off huge nails one like Quayle.

    I'm still confused though?

    Am I gonna get to rattle a blonde nurse in the back of a horsedrawn cart or not?
  14. Prithee good sir Ravers, we have been waiting for a horsedrawn cart of nurses from ye Rinteln since 1356 and the Poitiers post-op piss up...
