Don't worry Rodney, Boyzee says if we nip down Peckham underground station we can pick up a hundred old French soldiers cheap, now my old mate says these sell for a fortune down at the local model soldier fair, so we can make a killing.

Dunno about you but in this day and age wandering round the Underground carrying a imitation Musket, does not sound a bright idea, you know how trigger happy the Gendarme's are in the Arc de Triomphe. . ...but each to their own...

( or Croydon and the Met even )

Horrible confusion and pandemonium was about to begin , by the innocent actions of the tube flashers waving their genitalia around . Not sure whether the genitalia’s being waved in their general direction are signals to the usual prelude to battle . Making them unsure whether to drop their rifles before the fighting starts or after they are defeated ? Who has the Regimental White flag ?

Qui a le drapery blanc regimentaire ?

Before the discovery of this photograph, historians believed the the Marne taxis represented the first-ever deployment of troops by public transportation.

I’ve spoken to the station master, he says there is a no smoking or raising white flags policy on station property.

When it came to training, the Grande Armée was far ahead of its time.
