The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
I now its gone but can't we have a little fun
Of course - you may have as much fun as you wish!
Just please try not to let the rest of us get bored to death
Plus I was wondering how many would realize my avatar isn't RGJ
Before the thread was deleted did anyone see if they (cheech and chong) replied to the fact that they were one and the same???
They may of course be two personalities in one body.
That is possible in general, but probably not in this case, as there was no discernable personalit at all......
I propose a LONDONS group hug. All cap badges, all shapes, all sizes.
C'mere, doan be shy, your mothers weren't.
Right, now we're here, someone tell me what polar's avatar is.
no! but you can nearly work it out .. its a REng cap badge. Can u do text even smaller?
yes - you can disappear up your own ARRSE!
Not without using other software...but me missus told me size wasn't an issue
Seriously, that cap badge has got to have links to the rifles. Apart from the RGJ battle honours, all its missing is the naval cross (and the "Royal Green Jackets" running around the boss, obviously).
Polar's Badge? The 7th Bn, I think.
His location is a bit of a give-away!
Nearly 100% of the TA has links to rifles inc London Scottish 'Rifles', Hallamshire 'Rifles', Leeds Rifles, Robin Hood 'Rifles', Chatsworth 'Rifles'
The battle honours are Boer war and probably WW1, like most they adopted a Rifles badge. I think many dropped the 'Rifle' title when they were forced to become a TA bn of a regular regiment in the 1900's. Derby used to have a very good (Sherwood Foresters?) museum on this subject, the change was hated. Nottinghams Sherwood Foresters museum is also a goo d one for the old volunteers history.
and here's me thinking that you liked parading around in tights
Except all the bits that aren't. Like all the Yeomanry units.
So what weapon do you shoot your APWT with ?
