No-one would want to be late for "Double Dildo Shove Fest II" that nobby says he'll be putting on at 8 sharp!.
It did actually... honestly... with flashing lights and everything...Bambi said:And I bet it had a bar.....with a one armed bandit machine....frankie said:It was the Corps Blimey, mate.maxstrammer said:
Carton de Wiart was my military role model, which was probably why I baled out as a wise-enough-to-bale-out-before-offically-classed-as-passed-over major. He won his VC at the Somme as a brigadier for walking accross no-manÂ´s land tossing granades at the Boche from a satchel slung round his neck. I believe that by that time he had already lost an eye and an arm. He wrote an autobiography called Happy Oddesy. If anyone can get hold of it, itÂ´s well worth reading. My favourite quote: "I failed the Staff College exam gloriously". My type of officer.RogerOut! said:Ritchie
Isnt that the famous and well known Lt Gen Carton De Wiart VC KBE CB CMG DSO Late 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards on your avatar?
I remember in 1996 hosting a group of Polish officers as part of a CFE armour count in Barker Barracks. The count was over very quickly and with time to kill I took them on a tour of our WOs and Sgts Mess, boring them to death with tales of derring do associated with the Regiment. The RM major who was accompanying them was translating and everything was going really well. But they were trully bowled over when they came across a picture of the great man in the mess and exclaimed in unison CARTON DE WIART!!!!!!Ritchie-Hook said:RO
