Len, we had a similar description going for the Gunner badge. The Crown that was never worn, the Wheel that never turned, the Gun that was never fired, the Grass that never grew and erm..........can't remember the last one. Any suggestions for the good and benefit of the Mess, Brum? Embarassed Embarassed

What, and get a life ban from this excellent forum ?

I don't think so !

(I reckon everybody is familiar with how it goes anyway).

You'll notice the resemblance of mine to Teabags. Still that was not our first hat badge. Talking about Brasso. I just finished Brassoing a WW 1 badge and collar dog ( 4 Railway Battalion Cdn)

My uncle was in the Corps during the war. Did you know him? Suppose Brum might have come across him or dropped one short while he was risking life and limb laying lines in front! tongue [/quote]


You've reminded me of a time when, as a young recruit, I was travelling home, on leave, in uniform. I was sitting on the bus when a woman said "oh are you in the army ? I've got a brother in the army (gave his name) do you know him ?

My brother had the best one, he would see me at the door and say the NAAFI is that way mate. His other favorite was, "you got the wrong house mate, slum lords live next door".
