Festival Of Remembrance

#1
Now I know that quite a few have mentioned this in the last few days, but I have just watched it on Beefbers. I have to say that it nails me every year, however when Sue Amer, the wife of Sgt Matty Amer Coldstream Guards was introduced and did her "piece to camera", along with his oppos, I was mullered, there and then. It never gets easier, and nor should it. Nuff said.......R.I.P

Where does Prince Charles get all his medals from ?

Is he a Walt ?
Hmm, good point.

The one that really peeves me though is Edward, check him out at the cenotaph today, all done up like a dogs dinner (including medals??). Erm, am I not correct in thinking that he bailed out of his RM basic. WALT

As it's Her Majesties Armed Forces, any Royal it's their train set to be honest, and can wear whatever they want. That said how they can do it without feeling like a fraud is beyond me.

Well one of them is the Royal Victorian Medal which the Queen gives, it's her medal she can give it to whoever she wants. The rest are free from Esso

Exactly. I have absolutely no issue with Phil the Greek, Charles or Andrew. Am I wrong in thinking that Ann also served in the RN. It just really P*sses me off that Edward, who lets be honest couldn't hack it gets to dress up in the uniform of the Wessex Yeomanry. Is this not a bit of an insult to them. I wore my uniform with pride, I worked for it, and earned it. Surely Edward MUST feel a bit of a TW*T (or WALT). To be fair there is a long and distinguished tradition in the Royal Family of service to the Country, and long may it continue, but TBF only wear it if you earned it........

I don't think I could get too excited about this. It is part of the protocol and has been for generations.
No doubt Edward feels a little undeserving and uncomfortable at times but is in a poor position to object.
Whether we like it or not the next generation of royalty is likely to bring considerable change when the succeeding reigning monarch takes post.

We should really be thankful we were not born into such a position. I cannot imagine a more restrictive and controlled lifestyle and one from which you are not permitted to retire or resign without massive fuss and bother.

Not really, we quite like Edward. He's been a good ambassador for us, he always remembers to wear our tie and having him wear our uniform at such a high profile event as remembrance sunday will hopefully remind people that there are TA lads & lasses who should be remembered as well.

A friend was with the war widows group that came on, she was with her son who lost a leg in Afghanistan and her husband was 3 Para killed in Northern Ireland. Had to bite my lip at that part of the proceedings I can tell you.

"He always remembers to wear our tie" .... Fucks sake, if thats the only thing he has to do then sign me up as the honorary colonel to a few prestigious and elite units. I promise that I will remember to wear your tie.

What the fuck has he done, apart from "Its a Royal Knockout" and dropped out of RM training? Why could he not, at the very least, have stuck at the RM training until he qualified, then said that service life was not for him? Its not as if they'd have kicked him out during the training if he had shown a willingness to stick it out to the end of the course.

Numerous of the Royals have actually earned some respect ... Harry for instance, or Andrew, who flew choppers in the FI. Edward has done nothing to earn any respect and is not a credible Colonel in Chief.

Grrr.

To fully complete your transition to 'complete gayness' please don a pink mac, adopt a permanent Kenny Everett type facial expression and give a gentleman oral pleasure whilst he stands in a carrier bag in a public convenience before the end of play today..

EH? Call me naive, but WTF does standing in a carrier bag in a public convenience achieve?
(So Ive heard) It's a common practise amongst the more daring of the homosexual, by standing in a Tesco carrier bag with your back to the door, you can allow a man of similar persuasion to swallow your offerings whilst in the seated position. For the uninitiated and the toilet attendant, a cursory glance under the cubicle will reveal a simple pair of feet fencing in a bag of shopping.
