  2. Thanks for the interest. We are still looking. If you are interested please get in touch.
     
  3. Will there be opportunities for some much needed bayonetted rifle drill and subsequent marching through the streets of Stourbridge/ Nottingham/ Chorley?!
    I would imagine that the locals who'd turn out to watch would be more armed in any of the locations!
     
  4. You're having a laugh! When 3 MI celebrate the freedom of Hackney it's in ECBA.
     
  5. And body warmers no doubt!!
     
  6. Nope, it just looks like we're wearing it under our jackets. And no rifles / bayonets either, I'd like to say it's because we're so hard we don't need them but in truth the casualty rates that would result from issuing them would rival the worst days on the Somme.
