This weekend the Sunday Times (21 January 2007, page 1.26) ran an article on North America's latest craze, pillow fighting. Of course it was us wot invented it in our school dorms and no doubt it developed further in the messes of various stoney frigates... Well the US now has a Pillow Fight League - strictly for lasses I understand (no lads?!!!) but this looks like an opportunity for HMS Raleigh to help hone the co-ordination skills and develop the arm muscles of new recruits (lads as well as lasses) with officially sanctioned inter-mess pillow fighting contests - as a substitute for the boxing matches of yore. How about challenging the bootnecks to a contest? Proceeds to a suitable charity. What do you think? An Olympic sport by 2050?
