The hair-raising move, which comes into force on 1 September, will allow serving members to wear "a smart, neatly-trimmed, full set beard".

is Noel Edmonds joining?

They said on the tv news last night that they were showing a picture of an old RAF man with "mutton chop whiskers". Wrong! It was a handlebar moustache as any fule kno.

Is Prince Harry looking for a job ?

SinnerBoy - 11 Aug 2019 22:13:08 (#5 of 22)

Dont be silly, he's the Prince Andrew of his generation. Job? Pschwah!

At one time Prince A was a dashing war hero and a shining example to all young men on account of his patriotic sublimation of the urge to kill and maim.

Do hipster pilots only fly Sopwith Camels (because they're like, totally retro) and drop artisanally crafted locally sourced bombs on a curated selection of ironic targets?

RosyLovelady - 12 Aug 2019 09:12:53 (#8 of 22)

Not yet, but that moment can't be far away.

Chaps drop the bombs (Spherical ones, with lit fuses and the word "BOMB" stenciled in white on the side) from Dirigibles, whilst one their way to discovering the sauce of the Nile.

'Dude, like we can't bomb that target.'

'Why not, Squadron Leader?'

'There's like, this really happening new craft brewery right next to it? It's totally exclusive.'

'Well our intelligence gathering and satellite imagery uncovered nothing of the sort. It's an armaments factory surrounded by warehouses.'

'Yeah, like, you wouldn't have heard of it? They only produce a single barrel a week? My mate Dom's band played there once? Anyway, I've got this screenplay that I'm working on, kind of Kubrick meets Scorcese but set in Camden, and like it's going to be a massive success, so that's more important? Hope that's okay for you, dude.'

the sauce of the Nile.

Carry on Cleo.

Prince Andrew grovels to Arab royalty, tough gig but someone has to do it.

RosyLovelady - 12 Aug 2019 09:44:14 (#13 of 22)

I expect it has its compensations; not neccessarily bankerish ones.

Eligelis - 12 Aug 2019 09:49:14 (#14 of 22)

that's the one CB

TheExcession - 12 Aug 2019 11:10:40 (#15 of 22)

The article mentions Goat Majors as being allowed to grow beards. What in the name of fuck is a goat major? Is this one of those regimental mascot things or are we training a crack squad of killer farmyard animals?

Snarlygog - 12 Aug 2019 11:23:13 (#16 of 22)

Commander Harris!

Hehe.

Jim Jam Ya-Ha!

(Boris Johnson is knocked onto his arse).

A goat major is the soldier who looks after the regimental goat.

Eligelis - 12 Aug 2019 14:08:30 (#19 of 22)

They get stared at a lot by obscure CIA departments

HorstVogel - 12 Aug 2019 14:12:55 (#20 of 22)

Is a goat major a nicer type than the bearded sappeur/sapper*?



* they look like the regimental butcher
