Just off the phone from COBRA and.. #733926

I've just come off the phone with the COBRA emergency meeting regarding Russia's invading of Ukraine. It was interesting, I must say. One of the things that came out of was that we should be prepared here in the UK, and as such I'd like to propose that we start a TM Home Guard..

We can meet weekly at the virtual church hall, and try to keep on topic with any training but I think we need to recruit a few more members before we're battle ready.

I'm sorting out the arming of you all by ordering some fresh microfibre cloths, and some long range polish bottles, along with a fresh supply of Captain Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure and Evans Waterless Coolant.

So who's with me..?

I'd like to propose Peter J as Captain, with perhaps Gambalunga as Sergeant..?

Craig Jezz could be a scarf wearer, but we need a first aider.

Remember, the country needs you..

Steve,
Terribly kind to propose me as TM Home Guard Captain, but I would be even more useless as Captain Mainwaring.
My vote would go to Gambalunga, we need someone who can actually lead.
I'm more the Sgt Wilson type, and that is pushing it. I was a Sgt in the Air Training Corps and was good at foot and rifle drill...

Some are born to lead Peter, and your skills would act as a banner to the junior members of the TM platoon, however I fully accept and understand your standpoint. Are you any good at making tea and cakes, perhaps..?

Well seeing as they had me down as Trigger in OFAH I guess I should apply for the role as Tippy Ashwood ?


Everyone loves a Morgan. Even me, unless it's broken again.

We are an island so we need a Navy. Can I be Admiral? I have a bosun's call somewhere, and my socks are lettered port and starboard.
