  2. Maybe not in my lifetime but one day Rooshia will join NATO to combat their real enemy on their eastern border.

    Most impressive to see the Guards on Red Square.
     
  3. If they find the time they could compare notes since their hosts have a bit of Afghan experience too.

    Cold, grey, forbidding country, hairy women... that must be why they sent the Welsh - they'd feel right at home.

    Video of the rehearsals here.

    The Taffs come in at 49 seconds. Now, I'm a stupid civvy, so what's the RSM shouting - sounds like 'Jackie Toe'? Is he talking Welsh Welsh as spoken in Welsh Wales?

  7. Who'd have thought we'd one day see that news that the Russians would get hacked off with a Labour government and look forward to establishing cordial relations with the Conservatives? Remember the good old days when Moscow delighted in getting socialists into power? :)
     
  8. There is a sartorial irony about Redcoats in Red Square. :D

    Those Guardsmen must be very proud to represent HM Forces. They look magnificent in their drab surroundings!
     
  9. Guardsmen always look magnificent. Part of being a Guardsman!
     
  10. -- Got to agree with that, Boris! :)
     
  11. Watched it on RT this morning, looked impressive.

    T 34s that can still work after how many years?
     
  12. Or is it a case of T-34s that HAVE to work after how many years?
     
  13. Don't. You'll lose.
    Poles fought on the same side as the USSR in the Second World War. In fact, all those former Polish military and gendarmes who were imprisoned in the Soviet Union were granted their wish to form Polish units and fight Hitler.
