"We would prefer to be at the pub!"
Alan: Hahah!! I visited their "encampment" when they weren't performing and there no lack of "essential refreshments" there smile
a few of them seem to labouring a bit, Alan. i think Ray has a point there.
Alan: "Men Behaving Badly" comes to mind. These are seasoned troopers about to entertain the public.
I just read that the Army in the U.K. is 40% understaffed...I see how bad it is now ! smile
Alan: Do you think that this bunch would help to keep our nation safe? wink
THE RED COATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alan: A symbol of our early British armies and still used in ceremonial parades - Trooping the Colour, for example.

By the look of them they have at least a 1000 years of battle experience among them... I know they don't surrender easy smile
Great picture here, Alan.
Alan: Hahah!! They were providing the musket fire to accompany some of the musical items.

Some military music should accompany them!
Alan: They were off to their special stage to provide musket fire to accompany the cannons during the 1812 Overture and the Battle Symphony. Thanks, Philine.

They look about as good as the old Mercian army.
No wonder we lost an empire
A very downtrodden band! :-D
