Guardsman faints, stabbing himself with bayonet

#4
Poor bugger!

Wonder if he'll be charged for being idle on parade?
Given that comment in the story about the loss of blood I wonder if his mates were afraid to go to his aid. Knowing the G.G. he would tend to stop everything and order care be given (if he saw it)

G.G.is a good man. When Obama spent Christmas with hs family in a beach in Hawaii, H.E. David Johnston was in some hellhole in Afghanistan spending Christmas with Canadian troops.

Don't worry. The BBC refers to them as the Royal Anglicans as well, even when they're sober and sat at a desk.

Classic comment from 'DougieD' :lol:
'I don't think it's unusual for people to pass out while standing at attention. I did a short stint in the Air Cadets when I was a teenager and seen it happen a couple of times. There were no injuries.'

Looking through various comments, there's one that suggests that the route should be changed and another that hints that the Guard should walk around the manholes. Haven't they considered the simple expedient of resin-bonding some grit to the cover and frame?

Or rubber bayonets?

Some one put the above comment on the article, priceless.
Could that be OUR random_person?


I read the first and last pages of this post. Absolutely hilarious and sick. I laughed until I cried, and I haven't done that a lot lately.

By the way, I'm an American.

Which would explain the spelling of bayonette. But walting as a Grenadier??? What's the point?




Answer: The stabby bit at the end of the bayonet.

Many moons ago at HMS Ganges, there was a lad in the guard that fainted and managed to stab himself in the chin.
