Flag Kissing - New Drills?

Either I missed something when I was in, or they've rewritten the manual since I got out. Either way I can't remember ever doing flag kissing drill. Help me out.

There is of course another possibility, he's just coughed up twenty pints of stale Guiness and a manky kebab all over the colour party's best boots and is now wiping his gob! I think I prefer this option, it fits in with our traditions.

It looks suspiciously like creeping septicism to me.

From the article;

The top U.S. commander in Iraq, General Ray Odierno, noted that US troops would "stand shoulder-to-shoulder" with the Iraqi people and the Iraqi Army, as they "continue to stand on their own."

How does that work? :?

Clearly. Unless it's a phrase borrowed from GWB's "Big Book of Mangled English"

TBH it looks like he is wiping his mouth and it was all he could find
 
If that really is a white hackle I can see, the flag's probably soaked in glue and he's taking a deep breath.

Spot on it's a white hackle so he's probably cleaning his mouth after a chip supper! This kissing flags stuff is a bit Naff.

Looking at the smirk on the porridge Jock's face it'll be April 1st then...............
