    Photos from my past....

    Oh gosh! I found this on the internet yesterday! Someone sent me the place to look for it. I would have been a few months around eighteen years old and thought that becoming fifty years old, sixty years old was an age far, far, far, away in the distant future. In 1976 even the year 2000 was farther distant from me, in years, than was my birth year. Time stand still for no one. Happy August!

    Looking at that photo reminds me of the Spike Milligan book (IIRC it was either "Adolf Hitler, My Part in His Downfall" or "Rommel, Gunner Who?") where he has a cartoon of the different ways that Army uniforms were designed (not) to fit the average soldier

    And the picture in one of his books entitled 'British Soldier with an incredible weapon'.

    Goodness me - children with firearms. Quick, somebody should tell the GCN - we must put a stop to this instantly!

    The thing that strikes me most about that picture was that when I joined the CCF in 1994, we were still being issued with the exact same kit. Bloody puttees!!
