Portsmouth field gun crew in action more than a century ago - Portsmouth News
Anyone else notice finknottle in the clip?
Makes you think - re-enacting a gun drill as a competitive sport only a year after it was done in action.
That would be the equivalent of Royal and the Paras having a commemorative yomp/tab competition from Port San Carlos to
Port Stanley from 1983 onward. Or, the RAF seeing how fast they can get pissed in a hotel in Italy each year, to commemorate Air Ops Libya.
I think I saw (granny) loafing by the Drill Shed.
Good to see that the Whale Island drill shed has been modernised so many times since then, it's unrecognisable these days.........
I think Royal was quite keen on re-enacting their "Wings of the Apache" stunt but the RAF regt complained it was making them look bad, since wing walking went out with the Swordfish...
Well spotted that man....was it the gaiters that gave me away?
No, the only man with a Zimmer frame in 1900 was the key! ^_~
Now send him round the Island with a 4" brick for company.
Hang on a bit whilst I catch my breath....!!
When Granny says "old ships", he means the Victory......
