I'm torn on this.

Half of me wants to go, the other half shudders at the thought of it. All I can think of is Puttees and Battledress and I'm not sure that's how I want to celebrate TA100.

Will it have an eye to the future?

Does anyone know?

After visiting that website, I've just bought a TA100 hoodie. I'm now going to go off and have a word with myself.

I'm so ashamed.
I'm really surprised you didn't go for the wooden pen! - class.

Will it have the same coverage as yesterdays event?
Nowhere near as much!!!

Its another excuse for a few G&Ts and back slapping. Don't worry though, the various playlets are all being done by actors.

No irony there then.

21st June 2008 | The TA100 National Pageant will be a fast moving and highly visual performance, involving battle re-enactments, a parade, military bands, historic vehicles, and a tribute to those Territorials who have given their lives and who have won gallantry awards.
Sounds just like the War and Peace Show 80

Oh nooooooooo playlets done by actors. Are these actors the re-enactment wierdo socially dysfunctional walts who like dressing up in uniform.

I remember a never-repeated battlefield tour where we had some german uniform wierdo walts doing stuff who then wandered round the bars in Oosterbeek in ss uniform. Nearly got lynched. If these actors are those people I am boycotting the whole thing.

Apoligies overdose of Lemons today.

Liking the Poppy Ball idea :D

Veterans Day in Birmingham should be good, last one was a success and they appear to be building on that, so well done all.
