A thread to take your minds off the results ... :D

From the Court Circular dated 30th September 2014:

Quote:
His Royal Highness [the Duke of York] this afternoon arrived at Royal Air Force Benson, Oxfordshire, from Switzerland.

The Duke of York, Commodore-in-Chief, Fleet Air Arm, afterwards attended the 78 Squadron Disbandment and 846 Naval Air Squadron Standing-Up Parade at Royal Air Force Benson.

Which begs the question: What other form of parade could there be besides one held standing up? :? (Disability excluded, of course.)

And another one that has long amused me, from the Classified Ads in our local newspaper some years ago:

Quote:
FOR SALE: 5 birth camper van

:shock:

We bought our latest car from the garage off the road next to raf benson, we had to wait for the floods to go down to have a test drive! We wondered how the staff got to the base from quarters that week? Waders?
