Tickets arrived this morning for tomorrows do, too late to send them back as I have to work, typical on the bus off the bus Admin! :roll:

Really? Why do you think you are going then? No tickets = no entry.

Make sure you have a contingency plan for what to do with your Saturday afternoon in the event that the ushers do not agree with your plan.

the ushers will (should?) have a nominal roll with our seating plan, that side of things is supposed to have been sorted.

the single person from my unit who did receive a ticket had his rank on the address, not a major problem for the mainland, but over in province, we're still a bit sensitive.

do they have bars in london?

Good luck with finding an usher willing to sift through the hundreds/thousands of names to find yours!

Bars? Loads of them!

It might be wise to get there early. Hope you get in.

None of my soldiers have received their tickets, so you're not alone.

I am at the rehearsals and it is beginning to get bigger than Ben Hur! It looks and feels very good. The whole thing is sold out completely so unless you are clutching tickets or are on a promise, you will find it hard to get in.

Lots of good gear, big screens, CVRT, 1/2 tracks, MLRS and lots of bands and music. And 650 blokes on parade, 6000 in the audience.

I will look fwd to the DVD. It will be on the TV tomorrow night, BBC and ITV.

i am here too just got back from rehearsals on Horse Guards hallowed turf.

an amusing moment when the Guards RSM called for the Boer war contingent. it confused the hell out of us until a group of cadets appeared sprinting onto the parade. The RSMs face was a sight to behold.

it does look very impressive. good turnout already with a lot more to come in the early hours.

i'll be marshalling tomorrow and i'll be looking out for ARRSE badges and ties. if i spot any i'll know where the hipflasks are being hidden :lol:

Organisation on par with TA pay and bounties, we're used to that. Who'd expect anything different..... :D

That's a fact, Jack. I meant that the BBC and ITV News should carry it. Of course it may feature in a future feature length episode of East Enders and maybe Uncle Albert fm Only Fools and Horses will turn up as the token old fart veteran bloke!

Two up and bags of smoke, hack on Algy!

Well, just sent a bus load down on Thurs night. They seemed quite excited about the prospect of being thrashed around horseguards. My lot were supposed to be staying in Pirbright and then onto Wellington Bks on the sat. You'll be utterly surprised to hear that when they got to Pirbright the plan had changed. Somewhere along the line an Officer has stuck his tuppence worth in and fu*ked it up as usual. :twisted: Any way I hope the boys and girls enjoy the moment, they desrve it! :wink:
