This new avatar of yours, Shellers old son.

An alarmingly scruffy looking bit of kit, if I may say so.

Clearly NOT 76 Bty !

Course it's not 76 Bty, old bean, theirs never left Barracks. Yours bears an uncanny resemblance to old Barney Wallis when he was DoM of the RA (Mounted) Band. king

Found a bit more on Barnes Wallis

Quote :
In April 1913 as chief assistant to H B Pratt of Vickers, Wallis turned his mind from the restless sea to the almost unconquered mysteries of the air. He designed Britain's second rigid airship, the R.9, for the Navy.

BNW: "Churchill stopped the building of the R.9 at the beginning of the war because everybody thought the war would be over in three or four months. Pratt and I rushed off and enlisted in the Artists' Rifles".

They served for nine months.

This is from his memorial trust....


Rifle= small cannon = bigger gun = Shelldrake`s fantasy....Yep there is an RA connection bom lol!

Not sure why I'm perpetuating this but I found this during a "google". (They can't touch you for it !).

"With the outbreak of the First World War, Barnes found himself unemployed when the Admiralty decided that they did not want to spend any more money on airships during the war. Wallis took the opportunity to join the Services but unfortunately failed the eye test to allow him to get in. Wallis overcame this by recruiting in another section of the Services and when the men were stripping just before their medical, was careful to do so near the sight-testing card and memorised it. However, soon after he had joined up, the airship designing team were recalled and the War Office was persuaded to release Wallis, and Pratt who had joined too, from the Army."

If his first attempt to join up failed then this would seem to knacker Gordon's offer!

Funny where this post has led us too - Barnes Wallis, Churchill, Beer mats, Wikipedia, Dogs, The Royal Artillery, Guns, Bouncing Bombs, electric drills etc, etc. Whooo ! that's enough to be going on with. I don't care as I now have my picture of a Warrant Officer's Warrant.

Carry on that man
