...this is the first time I see a forum without any users bashing each other in ego wars, especially when the users are from all over the world...

Here are a few photo's from my latest Tour Of Duty in Russia for the 65th aniversary of VE day (got 200+ photos to go through so will only post a few good ones).

Waiting on the Heathrow ramp awaiting clearance for pushback for the flight to  St Petersburg:


The group preparing to lay a wreath at the Leningrad Seige memorial (St Petersburg):

Leaving St Petersburg flying North for Murmansk:

Got a few of us at Archangel but they are on another memory card and not uploaded yet.

Maybe you do, but unlike someone I know I'll bet his nipples don't itch when he wears a kilt!  hehe.

Ye're right  R/C they did not itch but some thing else (or should I say a pair  ::unbelieveable::) was frozen up in Murmansk.  It did not look like it from that photo but it was around minus 10C and below with snow still on the ground and apart from that day it snowed while we where up there.

Nope---but I agree he does look like me.....this was way back in 1989 when I married Kris, on the right, mother of my daughter---we are still best friends though no longer married...

Hahahaha. Robin Williams said that scotts are so drunk they can wear a skirt and not care!  ::rofl:: I rather think it's bravery, like Prince John says in Mel Brook's Robin Hood movie: Let's face it. You've gotta be a man to wear tights! You don't take no shyte from nobody! My dad also said that scottish soldiers in the old days just marched steadily against the enemy with their bagpipes playing like they had no fear, and that scared the enemy.
