Beating the Retreat!

#1
Just watching it on BBC2.Absolutly brilliant bit of Military music & ceremony (even as it's the Marine band)
In my opinion,us Brits do the 'Pomp & Ceremony' bit better than any other armed forces in the world!
Bring back the Royal Tournament!

Oh, I missed it. I remember being dead impressed with the Royal Tournament, went we went there as a school trip in the 1960's. ( Have seen it on tv since), but when was it stopped?

Would it have been the Band of the Royal Marines that I watched practising on the football ground that I could see from the window of the nurses' home in Commercial Road, Pompey, in the early 1970's?

It was 'dropped' about 3 years ago by the MoD despite calls for it not to be.My Step Brother was on it in the mid 70's on the RN Gun team.

Chanced upon it whilst surfing to get away from the 10mins or so ITV News dedicated that fcuking non-story about that old Northern gimmer who saw the 7 July bombers leave their flat.

Noticed that the RM bands have girlies now. How long do you think it'll take the booties to realise that they actually have a second hole (this one being around the front) for poking?

Nice little get together though. Who's Trooping their Colour on Saturday?
