Must have been a 4inch quickfire gun, excellent digit amputators for the unwary. You had to ram the shell with your fist making sure nothing stuck out to be caught by the sliding breach as it shut.

Notice: "Big Ben" has been obliterated and the tall building on the left, the Victoria Tower, has been shifted from the far end of the Palace of Westminster into the Peers' Car Park! Also the tower above Central Lobby now stands infront of St.Stephen's Entrance! :roll:
Shedders_Middy... I like your caption. It's just perfect! It reminds me of a GI I read about several years ago. He was demonstrating how to load a breech loading gun (bear in mind I know nothing about guns, as a civvy!) and when closing the end of the gun it removed his thumb. He said to the class 'And that is what happens is you don't concentrate on what you're doing!' or words to that effect, and only then fainted. Impressive men, these people! :| (I wish there was a smiley for being "deeply impressed")

"Yes, I remember him as a baby," says the other mother cheerfully.
"He's a martyr now though," mum confides.
"Oh, so sad dear," says the other.
"And this is my second son, Khalid. He's 21."
"Oh, I remember him," says the other happily, "he had such curly
hair when he was born."
"He's a martyr too," says mum quietly.
"Oh gracious me " says the other.
"And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He's
18," she whispers.
"Yes," says the friend enthusiastically, "I remember when he first
"He's a martyr also," says mum, with tears in her eyes.
After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks
wistfully at the photographs and says..
"They blow up so fast, don't they?"
