June 12, 2009: Lance Corporal William Windsor
Lance Corporal William Windsor, better know as Billy.

Soldier, you call that a SALUTE?
xoxoxoBruce Friday Jun 12 02:35 AM
I think he's flashing a V.

In goat language he's saying......

At nine years of age the lance corporal would need to simmer for quite a while before he's tender. Say, in red wine with onions, carrots, tomatoes, plenty of garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Maybe a few cloves too. I think I'd serve with mashed potatoes and a nice, dark Trappist ale.

"So , tell me, what is it you do?"

That whole story just proves that the Brits, in all their proper behavior and stiff upper lips, are really off their rockers.

I sure hope Will can swim. Looks like they are expecting a flood.
Cyber Wolf Friday Jun 12 10:24 AM
That's an impressive set of horns there. I'm liking the ornamentation on 'em.

Yeah, it's always been fairly clear that the whole stiff upper lip thing was to COVER UP the off-the-rocker-ness.

Have you pictures of the commanders? Huge whiskers. It's an easy mistake to make.

Nah. our lads had plenty of female company. The american soldiers were somewhat disdainful of our tendency to allow so many 'camp followers' ... and American soldiers therefore had a reputation for being a little scruffy (and manly), as it was the chikas who did the washing and mending of uniforms...meanwhile we had a volteface on the whole women accompanying the army after a couple of notable acts of 'cowardice' provoking a 'gender panic' and leading to a change in how the women were viewed and fears that they were having a feminising effect on the men.

Welsh... shouldn't it be a sheep?

Oh boy, here we go with the Welsh stuff.
Gravdigr Friday Jun 12 05:06 PM
Even with the headgear, he looks a little gruff.
ZenGum Friday Jun 12 09:43 PM
C'mon, he's just kidding.

Hey, is that any way to treat a vet?
ZenGum Saturday Jun 13 07:50 AM
Thank god the Afghans didn't get him.
