I saw no Pith helmets today, were any Marines present? I saw RN ticktocking out of step as per though, was this the total naval contingent?
Just remember that unlike the Army which has loads of blokes on shore in UK who can be pulled off other duties for this sort of thing (necessarily, because UK needs a reserve of bods in case something unexpected happens), the RN should be running with no spare hands at all ashore except for those under training at various levels, and their training staff. The days of a sort of manning pool sculling around litter-picking in barracks have long gone.
Stop, you're making my skin crawl.
Your Band Service School is there too isn't it? Is it 'have you ever been to Nelson?' Or 'have you ever been on Nelson?'.
