It’s all becoming clear

November 12, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Today we remember the millions of men and women who have served, were injured or were killed in the service of The United Kingdom and it’s commonwealth. Over the last few days I have been thinking about the cuts to our armed forces and something has dawned on me.   Part […]

You can’t outrun a hellfire!

August 23, 2012 at 3:32 pm

A bad bloke in a fast car (according to Saint Jeremy of Clarkson, all Auto Union Deutsche Industrie drivers are C**** anyway)very nearly out ran even the police helicopter according to an article here.  I think in future there should a standby Army Air Corps Apache (possibly with a naked […]

Farewell the The Old Seven and Sixpennies?

June 19, 2012 at 6:27 am

As you will all know, yesterday was the anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.  I won’t get all anti French here, but … well you all know who won (and lost)! What I will do here is bring to light the fact that the old Duke of Wellington’s Regiment, which […]

A Fond Farewell

March 30, 2012 at 5:30 pm

It’s with a touch of sadness that I add my voice to those saying farewell to “The Crazy Red Chicken” as we called her. Today was the final decommissioning ceremony of HMS Liverpool. She was my home for a while last year, and we had some good sport (READ HERE). […]

February 5, 2012 at 5:12 pm

It is my hope that the CGS & CDS have the balls to say to the politicians “Your peace dividend will be the same size as the uplift you gave us once Iraq & Afghanistan. I cannot help but think that the tax-dodging, lying, expense fiddling scum will have short […]

Top marks to the Canadian government for re-instating the “Royal” prefix to their Navy & Air force. St C has had the pleasure of serving in action alongside our Canuck brethren in Bosnia & Afghanistan, and holds them in the highest esteem. They rank close to the top of the […]

RIP Gary Moore

February 6, 2011 at 10:17 pm

Here we go again

February 4, 2011 at 12:49 pm

Another 4th / 5th rate nation has had their particular Outrage bus “First Paraded” and warmed up. After the “man gets nuked twice” jokes from TV program QI that upset poor old Japan a few weeks ago, now Mexico is getting all upset!(This has now resulted in poor old Mr. […]

Get over it Nips

January 23, 2011 at 2:11 pm

So, the institutionally liberal BBC has felt the need to apologise about a joke regarding the atomic bombing of japan. The Sons of Nippon lost, get over it!!Alongside victor’s justice, there is a secondary right of “Victor’s Humour! If you don’t want to feel inferior win a war or two!!
