NOT A CAPTION …

”It’s a slow-burning fuse.”
”Yeah, getting close to BANG time, I guess?”

"What ammunition are you using?"

"Balls".

Well if you're going to take that attitude...."

OK, here we go. BTW, it was a re-enactment day at Fort Ward, VA (https://www.alexandriava.gov/FortWard), part of the defences of Washington during their unfortunate internal conflict. To our amazement, the gentleman on the right had been to Jersey twice … yes, the Real Jersey, not Noo Joysey!

Reserve Troops ….
Kiltrash: 5584 … the Covid Defense at the Border (wrong Fort, wrong airport but still good!)
Chu Chu: 5566 … Pickett’s Charge. A bit far from Gettysburg, but I get the idea!

Front Line
Wensleydale: 5557 AND 5558 … Gun stops, and Declaration.

WINNER
Ninhace: 5556 … Pull my finger

Have a cannon-ball … catch!

No problem … it was a good call. I just know Fort Ward and IAD too well!

Remind me again Captain Hoskins, why you painted the equipment in sand camouflage for use in the high Arctic ?

Rule changes for Formula 1 in 2022 were many and varied - and included reintroduction of a very old start procedure...

After the explosion, everyone ran to help, but it wasn't looking good for Frosty The Snowman.

Quick! Grab the ropes! The Humvee isn't heavy enough to stop the earth repelling them!

Remember only the TOW armed Humvees, they are parked in a tow away zone.

The army found motivation levels improved after placing a mint on the driver's seat.
