Friends..One for your diaries..Ref Cav-Parade 2020 ....You are no doubt aware that the early May Bank Holiday has been moved to Friday 8th May, the 75th anniversary of VE Day. There will be a large number of additional ceremonial events both in London and locally over that weekend

After consultation with MoD, London District, and Regiments, it has therefore been decided to take an early decision to move The Parade from the 10th to the 3rd May.

Subject: Tin Opener

As the old beer tin opener was lost my son made me one and then of course along came the pull ring.
Still have it some where In our regiment it was called the chuch key. One day around the Squadron fire in Soltau I shouted out 'has anyone got one' and a figure behind me said ' I have one'and it turned out to be the Vicar!

Charlie, the Vicar was obviously catering to all the needs of the unwashed soldiery ........ not just hymns and prayers.....

Had to open a tin of tuna, which didn't have a pull ring, the other day but, due to the failure of the battery driven opener and the hand held opener, did a root through the drawer to find my compo issue tin opener and lo and behold no problems in getting the lid off ...... I'm sure there are others out there who still find a use for these handy tools of the trade ....

Hi Dick, yes they are great little gadgets. I have 2, one hanging near the sink in the motor-home & used very regularly when Rving & the other in the utensil drawer in the house kitchen. It's funny how some folks who have never been in the military have great problems in using them. Take care my friend.

Codders, little grey cells not working well, the only geordie's I can think of are Keogh and Pearson also, in Germany, only remember the little dumpy bottles .......though in the middle and far east there was Tiger which I thought tasted awful.
