I just can't get his trout put right and lord knows how I have tried, it's soul destroying...

Nope, that's me filming the opening 'music box' credits of Ridley Scott's new Epic - Camberwick Green The Movie!

This was taken originally by Wayland or Mags, I edited the two top ropes of the Standard out and then put a filter on the image!! Weirdly enough the overcast sky on the Sunday has produced some excellent contrasting colours from the kit.

Does this mean I get to play with hardware as well?

Do I get given cats or political prisoners to practice bayonet work too?

liberal
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Please get the paper work to me asap and you can have my soul.

Who's Gareth Peirce? Should we hate him too?
Us 15th Century bods are tempted to fall down the well of times, looking at your list.....can we bring a couple of horses?
Just give us the go ahead and we will train them to dislike Gareth Peirce too. :P

Thrud - no your wife and kids will probably be made to film the whole sorry event (familes usually laugh at the footage).

Lady Roos - mmm we must talk!

2 previous initiations

1. 2004 version- taramasalata is thrown at the crotch of a new blindfolded member, a border terrier pup is then held aloft to nibble frantically at the Greek dish until the blindfolded new member sobs for mercy!

2. 2006 version - a potential member is led into a darkened room, and zip-tied to an office chair.
When the lights come on, he is surrounded by Saddam Hussein, Frank Spencer, Osama Bin Laden and a negative Hitler.
The lights go out again and a saveloy is pushed gently into his face many times before he is splashed with warm yoghurt.
He must guess correctly the dictator who has been aroused by him!
If he guesses incorrectly- then the whole process is repeated.
4 incorrect guesses and Idi Amin enters the room with a Labrador and a selection of party dips!

DofB, Wot, Wot? About Gareth Peirce? Or about plunging down the time well?
Our trained killer horses claim they've heard rumours about this Gareth too, but would like them to be substantiated before they take any action :oops: Suppose because they are from Holland and are a bit liberal. But we are working on this.
Lord Roos has always been suspicious of any man called Gareth from a very young age, as they have either: a. stole his girlfriends or b. beat his favourite rugby team. Though he was rather fond of Gareth Harry who helped him source his recreational drugs as a teenager :lol:

I have been thinking about this and if I get any say in the manner to which I am "born" into the Britania fold, can I chose the dogg method please?

I like dogs and they have smooth tongues when compared to a cat. Plus you can tell when a dog is enjoying himself and you can never quite trust a cat.

Woa, I have never seen a searchlight in that sort of context before or in such a clear photo. Only ever on old black and white films.

That is pretty darn stunning.

It was, I liked the searchlight a lot...especially when Ash went round to touch the glass to see if it was hot.
I was most disappointed when his fingertips weren't instantly welded to it.

I would have been surprised if they hadn't been burnt clean off in a puff of bacon smelling smoke.

But I must admit to being the sort of person that has to see how hot something is myself.
