    O Lord above send down a dove, with wings as sharp as razors, to cut the throats of them there blokes, that sells bad beer to sailors.

    We dedicate our time to re-enacting memorable trafalgar night dinners as part of a "living history group", our sister group "Burns night supper" is Tri-service.
    So what do you mean, you just go about eating dinners?
    You should move to Tamworth mate.

    No, no, no! Stop now. You'll only set off all the Froggy speaking gits again and we've only just got them back in the box after last time.

    Submariners seldom cheat, and NEVER lie!

    Why is it acceptable to cry at a wedding but not to laugh at a funeral?

    Frenchie, to be honest just sticking with a tuxedo. Will let the old man of the sea hold up the RN standard.
    All the same will be sporting my massive group of two medals (miniature) as the Septics get all sentimental and lash you up all night.

    Why the hell would you want to, beyond me. Your now a civi, get used to it and behave like one. That doesn't mean you have to grow up and stop being "matelot type".

    Worth considering......... is Tamworth the epicenter for dinner re-enactments?

    Has anyone any mess undress, mess dress etc that they would care to donate? As due to our dedication to realism, our membership are rapidly growing!......... None of my posts on this thread contain any sarcasm/untruth what so ever.

    The son of an illegal immigrant asks his dad, "Dad, what's democracy?"
    "Well, son, that's when the British work and we get all the benefits from it!"
    "But Dad, aren't the British people unhappy about that?"
    "They sure are son, but that's called 'racism.'"

    I didn't attend his funeral but wrote a nice letter saying I approved of it.

    In a fraction of a second they are projected into eternity and will never possess a final resting home.
    They have graves without bodies, they are an exceptional breed of people....
