Yes he did (noted here in NZ) as for why; perhaps its a Crab thing, sort of a YMCA dress up in a military style? Anyway what does it matter if he jumped through the hoop again he garuanteed his pension rights
He's got no business inspecting anyone else, pocked tucked or not, the nob and I think he's realised his sunglasses are stupid as he's making a grab for muckers Rayban's. Not sure guy in between and behind is too impressed either. Cnuuuut
Why? Is he an Honorary Colonel or some such? In which case lose the bar-codes when dressing up as a Sapper. Is this something to do with the runway repair outfits, like the one at (I think it was) Leuchars?
