I just knew I wasn't storing them in vain! Can I wear my steel lid, S6 and separate-hood OG Noddy suit?
My tin of cheese isn't looking too healthy - it's kind of, well, expanded quite a bit. No problem, though. I've got the grid reference of a tin that I dropped in 1980. Think of it as pre-positioned rations.
Anyone want to form a clan using Larkspur and that Amber 1, Amber 2 stuff?
That's it, then, the 42nd Old Farts Brigade vs the might of 3 Shock Army. Checked out the attic and found:
1 OG Shirt
1 Pair twists for tucking the trousers in.
1 Pair, slightly mouldy and green, Boots DMS (worn down at both heels and no laces)
1 Set very crinkly combat waterproofs. No chance of sneaking up silently with that lot on.
1 Norwegian shirt, ripped down the middle and fraying at the cuffs.
1 Beret without capbadge (must have shrunk over the years as it no longer fits - stinks of mould round the band)
1 very worn and frayed stable belt (R Sigs) with leather side buckles (one snapped)
Oh aye Herfie 40 pflegs a bottle give me time to lace me db's up and I with you.
Funny old thing I was on the Costa del dole on holiday mit missus and bin-lids last year and ended up on the piss with some Ukrainian punter who was Motor Rifle in the 3rd Shock Army and we agreed no doubt we were probably pissed up on either side of the IGB at the same time funny old small world
