"And children, don't forget to save up your toilet rolls for next week as on Blue Peter we will be making the ammunition."

Note: Blue Peter is the name of a BBC TV children's programme.

Lots of good entries runing from Dad's Army to the passing resemblance to Robbie the Robot, but the jury has voted for Traffic_Is_Er_was with "Well, we had a washtub, some roofing iron off the shed, and an old skid steer loader. After a dozen stubbies each, we had a great idea....."
The CST is in the courier....

Gee, didn't expect that. Thanks! Since I've had a go just recently, I shall decline with grace, and ask that you nominate an alternative captioneer? Let's spread the love! I'm sure Startrack can be redirected with the CST.

PS. If andytug is away for a while, I will nominate another within a day.

Thank you. I had a photo in mind; if anyone can find a larger version, be my guest. It comes from the US Library of Congress.

So you see Captain Blackadder, there are more convincing ways of feigning madness than stuffing a couple pencils up your nose...

Yes Sarge. I planned the Autumn ambush in Summer.

As well as being late, the US Army had failed to grasp the essential principles of trench warfare.
