...has a very charming article, with lots of pictures, on the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment, currently galloping about in Norfolk.

(and an article about keeping wallabies to mow one's lawns)

A snip at £3.20

£3.20 for a wallaby? I just steal mine from Derbyshire...

Fcukin' wallabies, I hit one on the drive up home a few months ago. The bloody things are everywhere!

(for those that don't know, wallabies are like short, fat kangaroos)

Here you go - keep the grass neat and make your Aussie neighbour's feel at home.

It's rather nice that there are a few of the 'old' traditional things like this still allowed in today's army. But I worry that exposure like this might make an minor-civil-servant-bean-counter-type question their validity.

Some cracking photographs with one or two of them being almost typecast for silly caption competitions!

1. The shot of Captains Charlie Meredith-Hardy and Tari Mundawarara (? good old Anglo-Saxon name....) saluting to the right whilst jumping a fence in unison is a corker. Terrible salutes though - badly cocked wrists the pair of 'em.

2. The shot of the back of the 'Team Photo' is amusing too. The mounted chap on the right (of the picture) looks like he's holding a windsock instead of a lance or ensign.
