  1. I know there's probably as many versions of an Infantry Prayer as there are Infantrymen, and that's not including the ones in a prayer book.

    Have to say one of my favourites, and one of the shortest, was usually fallen back on during long tabs when your feet were suffering:

    Dear God, My feet hurt, but if you can keep picking them up for me I can manage putting them down again.

    Any other favorites out there, as religious or witty as you like, but keep it clean(ish) eh?

    Edited to say that Yes I know this should really have been under Infantry thread and I'm really sorry Mr Mod Sir. You can move it if you want. It's not my fault, Mummy dropped me on my head at the age of 2 (and then again at 3, 4,5 ....... maybe she was trying to tell me something!)

    "For what we are about to receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful."
  6. Sir Jacob Astley's at Edgehill 1642, "Oh my lord God, thou know'st how busy I must be this day. If I forget Thee, do not Thou forget me!"
