Celebrity Walts!

#1
Dr Gillian McKeith: Gained her doctorate online
from an unaccredited academic insitute.

Jeffery Archer: So many lies, so little time to expose them.

Field Marshal Montgomery: Wore a RTR capbadge but was a
Royal Warwickshire Regiment officer for most of his career.
Somebody might educate me why this was the case though!

Liam Gallagher: For telling the world that a load of Italian
Mafia banjoed him and knokced his teeth out when the truth
was that it was a German (a big lad though to be fair) computer
programmer did it and sorted out his bodyguard as well.

The England cricket team. Been walting away about their prowess
for the past year until they boarded the Qantas 747 to Sydney.

Montgomery was sometimes ungracious, but he was able to painstakingly articulate a vision for victory and couple with it a good sense for publicity (the use of his distinctive black beret with two badges, for example).

I can't remember the exact details but I think Monty was on his way to address some troops and discovered he had forgotten his headdress. Instead of appearing bareheaded, he borrowed his driver's who was RTR. It was the realisation that it made him stand out from the crowd in the eyes of his men that made him carry it on even after he was reunited with his own titfer. He was also pictured wearing a digger's hat covered with loads of badges.

Makes you wonder if the entire course of the war would have been altered if his driver had been ATS.

The story I heard was that he was visitng an RTR Battalion (as they were then known) but couldn't get in the turret with his SD cap on. The RTR beret naturally fitted under the cupola, so he borrowed one and put his badge in it so that he would not be improperly dressed (he was a bit like Nelson in that respect).

After that he made a habit of "borrowing" headdress from units he was visiting and sticking his badge alonside the one that usually lived there.

From the Tank Museum Website:

Credited with driving Rommel back across the desert, his command secured the first major British victory of the war at the battle of Alamein. This crucial victory is noted for bringing about the turning point in a war that had seen the Allies suffer one defeat after another.

To command this set piece battle, Monty joined the crew of a Grant tank and adopted the traditional headgear of the Royal Tank Regiment (RTR), the black beret, to which he also attached his General's patch (pictured).

Always something of an eccentric, his choice of headgear was slightly unusual for a General of the time. The double badges on his black beret became a `Monty` trademark, making him instantly recognisable in the photographs circulated by the world's media.

He continued to wear the black beret for the remainder of his military career.
So there you go. Well done Big D.

Dermot O'Leary. SAS: Are You Tough Enough? No, and neither are you, but at least I got out of the Landy a few times, you lady's front bottom.

PS Don't look now, but the RTR Historical Society seem to have wandered in by mistake.

Met 'im in a club in Neath once, He is a right short arrse, and an arrogant prrick too. Tried tappin up the bird I was with at the time, she told him to foxtrot. Unfortunately too many bouncers around him for me to administer some discipline, Did chuckle a week later when a bird he did pull was plastered all over the sundays saying he had a maggot willy.
