lol! What a brilliant shot! The colour in this is gorgeous, but the humour is just the best. I love the guy with one sock hanging down. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn. According to the hostory books that I read the one sock down fashion was started by the Swiss Landsnecths in the fifteenth or sixteenth century, I beleive it is caleld Rowling.
Wonderful shot. So English!! I love the idea of breaking off from a pike push to have a 99!
Les Auld: Thanks Ian, great idea though to help cool down a battle.
