How **** does that sound? F-uck that!!

I'm sure they all feel very proud and honoured as they bull their boots and do hours and hours of drill... :lol:
And getting p*ssed on the Kings road
And feeling absolutely chuffed marching through the crowds through the gates of Buck house
And getting into Stringfellows free and getting p*ssed
And getting all kinds of “Ladies” paying you attention, trying all kinds to get you to move
And getting p*ssed in the warders Bar in the tower
And having a once in a lifetime opportunity
And getting p*ssed in the west end
For your family visiting and proudly pointing you out to everyone

Yep, really sh*t time :roll:

Who were the last lot to do it?

As far as I can remember it was 9 Squadron back in 1986 during RE 200?

They've only just finished paying off the fines.

Now, if I'd realised that there would be a barbecue and a Sapper bar at the TA100 Garden Party, I would have applied for tickets. :(

Lead-lined coffins are made to preserve the remains as they can be made air-tight.

X-ray photographs need a substantial radioactive source and a photographic film as large as the subject, so any idea of getting photos of a body in a coffin using a camera with special film are an urban myth. X-rays are used to examine structural components such as concrete bridge beams, but require an exclusion zone measured in tens or hundreds of metres.

There are lads marching today who weren't even born then. How worrying is that? No wonder their mums and dads are proud of them

The footage on Anglia News tonight showed them actually marching at The Palace, but I can't find that on the website yet. That will be more crates no doubt......

Is it true 9 Sqn carried the queen mothers coffin which was made of lead so no x-ray photo's could be taken?
The Irish Guards were the Pall Bearers.

Possibly, Lead-lined coffins are not unusual, especially for internment in a vault because they are airtight and preserve the body for longer, indeed most cemeteries insist on this type of coffin for internment in a vault.

Nothing as sinister as x-ray photos

Winston Churchill’s lead lined coffin weighed a quarter of a Ton and gave one of the carriers a Hernia

They wouldn't allow 7 do it when it was Herford based in case they nicked something!

Sorry to Gate Crash you Urban Myth X-Ray Party putteesinmyhands, but I actually offer a Product that can 'Drive By' objects i.e. suspect vehicles and take a very accurate and 'safe' picture of everything inside... 8) Not quite a Camera mind...
