HNY VL - though with the time difference you may have been back at work for three and a half weeks by now.
Bongser thought that he was going to play a blinder for you by recalling that the early C19 Royal Marines wore red and white hooped shirts on deck (he thinks that he read it in a Sharpe novel - Sharpe's Trafalgar? - some years ago) but Wiki doesn't agree. BOO!

It's the thought and failing memory that counts though, eh?

All the best :thumb:


The Royal Marines in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s did wear a uniform of red coats with white cross belts from each shoulder and white breeches :D
All the best Bongser. It’s still Jan 1st here so :CHEERS:
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.

Most likely a Caribbean Rum company, though nobody was sober enough to remember the name of it at the time :DRUNK:
