Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

You stated - hence not taken as "irony". You clearly stated you were providing a direct answer! Ian As you wish............ So I assume that your comments about the Royals being a highly profitable tourist attraction were irony as well. Of all you've said on this thread I now have no idea...

Re: Carry Freedom Lollipop Hitch - improvement?

...fitted but: the pillar is so much closer to the spokes that the lynch pin has enough side to side movement end up in them :( so, as smaller lynch pins seem non-existant, an alternative securing of the lolliopop is needed: am going to try an allen bolt windnut (and wire tie-wrap) separated from l...

Re: Team building: survival courses etc

I remember attending something similar for recruitment. Everyone went for the ones that had pushed forward and been prominent. I noted a quieter one who had not "shined" in that way, but had just got on with it, had been the one that had helped others and ensured everyone was included. Whi...

Re: A good recumbent trike for arthritic knees?

I'm considering a recumbent trike. I find upright bikes painful at both ends and with seriously arthritic knees I'm not confident of putting my leg down when I stop as the knee is prone to collapsing. With knees they won't replace yet and a heart condition that needs exercise but not insanity, I'm ...

Re: Did you get married in clothes related to your work or other activity?

Full no 1s (see Mick F's pic in the other thread) Yep. Also, been to funerals in No1s too, latterly to my dad's funeral April 1990. Thinking about it, that was the last civil occasion that I wore uniform. Left the RN in 1996 and my uniform(s) have been in the loft ever since. I don't think I could ...

Re: Did you get married in clothes related to your work or other activity?

... nudists ... By definition nudists cannot get married in clothes related to their activity :wink: . It's called a birthday suit. It has been done though..... Nudist Weddings are a genuine thing!!!! So technically, you are translating the same outfit (or rather the lack of one) from an "othe...

Re: Harry is marrying Ms Merkel?

I completely disagree. In what way are those firemen presenting themselves as "our betters". This is totally ludicrous. If people make sensible valid points I will consider their point and may change my position, may disagree, etc. You claim firemen and fire women getting married in their...

Re: Did you get married in clothes related to your work or other activity?

Your original question was whether Firemen got married in their "job rags", the answer was yes...... adding nurses, maids, builders, nudists, chemical defence workers is not going to change the fact that your were wrong and they do
