Two Oldies get together on parade


Once a year, on the following Sunday after the British Legion Annual Remembrance ceremony, AJEX (association of Jewish Ex-Servicemen & Women) meet at the cenotaph to remember the fallen.
Lew (Larry Fox) and I are always there to keep things in order and I usually manage to record the event

How you can both stand upright with the weight of all those medals is beyond me - I have enough trouble with minatures, at the same time I suppose wearing them on a Tuxedo has something to do with the single malts in the hand !

For the purists amongst us who like attention to detail, zoom in and note the IVth Hussar cap badge in my lapel and the Regimental Tie.

My old (literally) friend Lew has adopted the General Montgomery syndrome and goes in for loads of badges in his beret :)

Ron - both items duy noted - however unlike that chap Monty - I am entitled to wear the Black Beret and the 16/5th badge although I must admit that the new small type berets are rubbish and looks like they tried to economise on material - I would rather have my old one which at least came down to the right ear.

I see that Lew is wearing the AJEX Tie and has the Veteran's Badge on his lapel. So far, all well and good, although RSM Mee might have something to say about that raffish angle of his beret. :)

Well spotted that man. Now get it on straight with the rim one inch above the eyes, it is not a South Seas flower in your hair.
As for Corporal Goldstein, what on earth is that thing on your head, if it is a bush hat get the rim pinned up lad and where is your badge?
You take your eye off them for two minutes so they can be renewed and discipline goes out the window.

Well, you could have smiled Ron! It is good that you still meet up at Remembrance time. Long may it continue.
