June 12, 2009: Lance Corporal William Windsor

Lance Corporal William Windsor, better know as Billy.

Quote:
From his gleaming headplate to his immaculately groomed whiskers, Lance Corporal William Windsor looked every inch the proud old soldier as he left camp for the last time yesterday. Cheering comrades lined the route from his pen to the trailer waiting to take him to the zoo, where the Army veteran informally known as Billy the Goat will spend his retirement. His send-off came with full military pomp and ceremony - befitting-his lifetime's service with the 1st Battalion the Royal Welsh.


Quote:
For the most part Billy, aged nine, has served as unbleatingly as a goat can - although he did once butt heads with top brass when he was temporarily demoted for not marching in time.
Seems Billy was a bit of a rebel, but aren't all the Windsors?

Soldier, you call that a SALUTE?

GET THAT HOOF UP TO YOUR EAR!



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jun 12 02:35 AM

I think he's flashing a V.



JuancoRocks  Friday Jun 12 03:50 AM

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

"Here.....Lick this one time......" with tongue extended.......



Antimatter  Friday Jun 12 04:32 AM

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.

The regimental goat is considered a full member of the battalion. He marches in front of the Battalion on all ceremonial duties and is much loved by all ranks.
He has a full time carer known as the Goat Major who ensures the welfare of the goat at all times.

Oh I love that.



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

"Why....I am The Goat Major"


ZenGum  Friday Jun 12 07:52 AM

We need some LOLgoat captions:

Invisible cigar: delicious.



Say, is that a Goat-I-see?



TheMercenary  Friday Jun 12 07:59 AM

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

Just kidding you cus...



classicman  Friday Jun 12 09:00 AM

perhaps he was goaded into it



birdclaw  Friday Jun 12 10:09 AM

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.

Ha! you ever doubted it? Have you seen the House of Lords?


classicman  Friday Jun 12 10:51 AM

no need - we have you and SG :P



DanaC  Friday Jun 12 10:57 AM

*grins* fairy nuff



SteveDallas  Friday Jun 12 11:58 AM

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

(P.S. Was I the only one who thought this was going to be about Prince William?)

From the article:

Quote:
The history of the regimental goat dates back to the American War of Independence when a wild goat wandered on to a battlefield and ended up leading the regimental Colours at the end of a battle.
Well no wonder the Brits lost the war, they followed a goat into battle. Could they not tell it apart from their commanders?


DanaC  Friday Jun 12 02:05 PM

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

Maybe after all those months overseas they were just horny.






DanaC  Friday Jun 12 03:01 PM

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.

Sorry. That was a serious historical point...back to the comedy:

You'll notice it's a Welsh Regiment....right?



Undertoad  Friday Jun 12 03:53 PM

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



Flint  Friday Jun 12 04:02 PM

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.

Hey, is that any way to treat a vet?



ZenGum  Saturday Jun 13 07:50 AM

Thank god the Afghans didn't get him.



ham4art  Saturday Jun 13 10:52 AM

Ummm pretty sure he's sayin' -- slurp--- oh damn girl -- those red leather pants a bit tight. I believe I see camel toes.
