Top day out to be had in London.

#1
Do it, you know it makes sense, I'll be the drunk chap in the outrageously loud trousers trying to start a fight with a horse. Providing of course, I don't get dicked to man the 105s, in which case I will be the chap in green looking bored and chatting up posh girls next to the big guns.

Honourable Artillery Company "105 Shell" Polo Match 2010
Challenging the HAC for the trophy is a team drawn from Regiments across the elite of the British Infantry.

Sunday 15th August - Gates open at 12.00

Apart from the frenetic and exciting polo there will also be the HAC Light Guns, a beating of retreat by the HAC Corps of Drums, and a Young England Polo Match!

Guests will also have the chance to view up close, the Supacat High Mobility Transporter (HMT) - Jackal and Coyote - as used by the HAC Fire Support Teams in Afghanistan!

Timings are:

13:30 HAC Corps of Drums beat retreat
14:00 HAC Regimental Team Vs Infantry
15:15 Young England
16:30 HAC Saddle Club Vs Ham Polo Club

Entry is £10 per Adult/£5 Children, under 5's GO FREE! Proceeds from ticket sales go to the HAC Benevolent Fund.



Ham Polo Club (The London Polo Club) is only eight miles from Hyde Park Corner, and is proud to be the last surviving London polo club out of the 12 or so that existed in the London metropolitan area earlier in the past century. It is also one of the oldest clubs in the UK, having been founded in 1926, and is proud of its traditions of being a friendly, family polo club.

Parking is free on the day! The nearest underground station is Richmond.

There will be delicious picnic hampers and drinks available (you are very welcome to bring your own), and a share of the proceeds will go to the HAC Benevolent Fund.

I'll have a go at coming along mate; looks good, although I would ask that my arrival is announced over the tannoy, perhaps with a fanfare of some description from the band.

First time I was introduced to a chap from the HAC was at a wedding and I asked the bloke what he did for a living 'I'm in the HAC' he replied.
'Oh, is that a bank?' I enquired (well it sounded a bit like HSBC & I had never heard of them).
'No, the Honourable Artillery Company' he rebuked, and with that the rude cnut turned on his heel and refused to speak to me.
Turns out they're a bunch of merchant banker, TA/STAB/Saturday & Sunday freakiin' t*ssers, so I hope the regulars give the posh civvy WALT wanabee [email protected] a good pasting and then anally rape them at the post match inter regt bumming that will no doubt take place!

You are quite right and i assume that you have met them all. Never before have i come across a bunch such as these. I mean, they do bugger all except bang on about tradition etc etc and fuck about doing ceremonial gun drill. As for their PSI's, a bigger bunch of walts & wannabes i have yet to meet. It wouldn't be so bad if they did the odd tour or two now, would it?

Blackrat,
Fair one, I shouldn't tar everyone with the same brush - I was having a particularly 'ranty' morning.
Soleil,
Point made.

Tits firmly stowed for another day.

It's true they are all utter cnuts, wasters and layabouts to a man, in particular the XX complete and utter lazy wnakers who are currently chilling out and getting tanned abroad with 4/73 battery, 7 Para RHA, 29 Commando and the Grenadier Guards. I'd say Tpr Adam Cocks is probably the worst of the lot though and has done absolutely fcuk all for his Regiment or anyone else. I mean yeah people say he got blown up twice on tour and survived and that he raised thousands of pounds for charity by organising the H4H rugby at Twickenham and cycling to Paris with a fcuked up leg, but I know differently, he's HAC, he's just some posh poser from the City.

Don't even get me started on Tpr Jack Sadler.

:roll:

Edited for OPSEC and to add a little more sarcasm.

Any update on the fanfare for my arrival mucker? I fancy Holst 'Mars' or something flamboyant from Aaron Copland.

Oh, and bring small skinny blondes.
