HAC Open Day 18th May 2010

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by 2_deck_dash, Feb 17, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just to let any of you London based RumRationers know that the Honourable Artillery Company will be holding an open day on the afternoon of the 18th of May 2010 at the Artillery Garden on City Road.

    The event is free and will involve various military displays, including flying and static aircraft along with military bands and a rare chance to see the Pikemen and Musketeers carrying out a 17th century drill display.

    In previous years there has been a BBQ and beer tent. The main aim of the day is to recruit for the Regiment, however anyone with an interest in the military will also enjoy the day.

    I will be in the beer tent or upstairs bar, in case anyone fancies meeting up for a pint.


    More details to follow closer to the day.

  2. Shouldn't this be in the homosexuality thread?
     
  3. There is a Homosexuality thread?!

    Where?!
     
  4. 2DD's quandary:

    Option 1: Abseiling and ninjering about the place with bundooks.
    Option 2: Getting plastered and swinging the lamp in a heavily subsidised posh dude's drinking den.

    Good drills that slacker!
     
  5. Fuck it, I'm coming down to lay waste to the place.
     
  6. Is it good form to do an aristocratic snorting guffaw before shouting 'Naked BAAAAAAAAAAAARRR'?
     
  7. Is that off Bunhill Row?
     
  8. Awesome, let's smash some London OTC officer cadets in the heads afterwards.

    Yes.

    Yes.
     
  9. I usually do both of these activities but in reverse order:

    1. Getting plastered and swinging the lamp in a heavily subsidised posh dude's drinking den.

    Swiftly followed by:

    2. Abseiling and ninjering about the place with bundooks.
     
  10. Watch the last video with the sound on and ask yourself that question again 2DD 8O
     
  11. Does your unit not have loudspeakers blaring out camp disco tunes while men parachute out of the sky covered in glow sticks then?

    How queer. 8O

    I might conduct a Foot Beat in the vicinity if I'm passing through, so long as I can drink on duty... :wink:

    Is this still going ahead? I may be rocking up with Pararegtom from arrse.
     
  16. It is and you are both welcome to join me in the sutling room for a beverage.

    Wear suits if you want to come into the house, otherwise there is a beer tent for the peasants.

    I haven't received confirmation of the exact timings yet but I'll let you know in due course. It's looking like it could be quite a do, Soleil might even come too as she only works around the corner.
