''The Chap'' a good read. A quintessentially British publication. I brought it for a laugh and took it down the mess never saw it again. The buggers.

One of my muckers is a member of this fine club and like me, reads The Chap. Formidable.
Hate to say this but looks a bit RAFish to me. :oops: :oops:
Can't say I agree. Looks from an age several years prior to the failing 100 year flying club (eight years to go :D ).

Appears the epitome of the late 19th/early 20th century Army SNCO to me.

Cheers Guzzler. As for you Pug, RAF indeed. Those swine stole their style from the Army, damn your eyes. You are lucky i don't demand satisfaction.

By the way, the bloke in the photo is Wyatt Earp.

Curses. 9/10 for date, 0/10 for nationality.

Maybe I'll award myself 1/10 as they were still almost Brits then.

That 'Chap' magazine looks pretty splendid - never heard of it before.
