Most impressive Tony, I'd call you Sir, even if that isn't correct for Sergeants. Is it true you guys dip your boots in Klear. ;)

Ha cheers. Yeah not a ‘Sir’ yet. Perhaps in a couple years if I move up to become the next Drum Major then you can ;) 

 

As to klear yes lazy guardsmen do try and get away with using it. Extremely frowned upon and if caught you will be on a show clean!

I think originally, I read an account of the 2nd Coldstream Guards' breakout from Tobruk when the fortress surrendered in 1942, and it was stirring stuff and I was at a very impressionable age.

Bonsoir Lascar,

 

the chow doesn't look half bad in your neck of the world! I could get used to that...

Is it a Puma, you are nonchalantly standing by?

 

Cheers

Hi Lascar,

 

great helicopter the Puma. I did many flights in it during my Air Force military service and it was fun! The pilots were real cowboys and in the Alps that usually meant some hairy situations.

Chow means food (American slang often used in the US arm forces).

Keep having fun in the sun!

Cheers

 

JR
