Brum I was amazed those taking part in the parade there were a lot of Scots accents. The march happens every year, they all troop down from the pool and get rat arsed then try and get on the train to go home. BBC did a rail program on this a few months ago

one of these series

I have to admit, when the wind started to blow that bird's white skirt up I was quite worried. If it'd blown any higher I think I'd have had to avert my gaze ! pale No pig

Hope the video is of interest. After the event we ended up in the farmers tent they were filling our glasses with beer from watering cans.

Having watched your video I strayed to the side of the screen to watch the one of 42's reunion, (well, you never know, I might've recognised someone!).
It made me think, I was toying with the idea of going to our reunion at Scarborough next year but I'm not sure how many people will be there who I was mates with. Certainly two of the aforesaid died last year.
Looking at the blokes on the 42 vid, a lot of them had that "what the hell have I come here for ?" look on their faces and I wonder if I would feel the same..

If it helps, the Welsh call the place "Llanfair PG".

Took some of the video Brum when the lads least expected, there was a few moments of nothing to say but it was nice to meet up with old mates again.

Nice video mate, I could almost smell those locos.
The last time I rode a steam train was at Llangollen, that's another one that's worth a visit.

Remembering how the beribboned WW2 vets in our regt used to wear their berets I can imagine they felt the same way about the way WE styled ours.
The dress regulations weren't a big help either. I seem to remember the beret had to be worn one inch above the eyebrow and pulled to the right rear, (whatever that meant).
I wonder what dress regs say about it nowadays ?

According to an advertising campaign on the TV, the Royal Marines have also taken to wearing their cap badge over the left ear, rather than over the left eye.

Makes me wonder why a Royal Marine would want to look like a European conscript?
