Will you buy a parachute lol?

Or will you have landed lol.

If you watch Band Of Brothers, yeah? The episode where they drop on Arnhem. Far left of screen, at the very end of the daylight drop sequence - there's our Russe11 acting as liaison to our trigger happy former colonials and showing them how it's done - gently decending to earth in the approved position... hanging from bugger all!

Band of Brothers was 101st US airborne, closest they dropped would be Nijmegen. Just cos I wear Airbourne gear doesn't mean I use a parachute, I could hitch a ride in a glider, that way my hair won't get messed up :D

Details, details... I lie down corrected ;)

Seriously though - watch it on Netflix if you haven't got it on deev - that scene there's a paratrooper almost as the scene ends descending without a digital parachute. Not even a jetpack :lol:

With a drop bag, or just the chute? Cos folding 1 up to get it in a bag needs a lot of indoor space and is not quite as simple as it may seem.

It was an old broken one, specifically no strings attached(dud in dum tish) but just wanted it for the looks

I used to have a green one hanging from the ceiling like an indoor tent when I was living in Vauxhall years ago - tbh it was a bloody nuisance, but it looked majorly cool.

Yeah, Bonnington Sq. Vauxhall was the centre of the universe back in the day, but as with all things uber, the word gets out eventually and then someone gets the idea that there's money to be made, the nuts become persona non grata, the vibe departs, and it's off to pastures new and home decors afresh...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know that wasn't what the wub was for, i was just being a nut for the sake of the vibe...

yup, can't remember how long she has lived there but is in the co-op. Was a buzzing place when I used to visit, the cafe and another pub near the oval

Ordered some Helicon CPU trousers and shirt in Polish Woodland, not worn "proper" cammo for a while so will be interesting to see if I blend in better at Holmbush and get shot a little less! :D

OMGonads, the free food caf! I used to help supply that place. Lol i've just deleted a paragraph of stuff about Bonny - there's not much to discuss about that place on a public forum lol!

 

I was never of the opinion that the Co-Op killed the place, as many people were; i think the centre of the universe had already shifted to Hammersmith by the time that happened, but yeah there were still some good times.

 

I've just remembered - I was barred from that pub in the end! Ahahahahahahaaha!

I should go visit her soon I guess, don't see enough of her. Lots of scumbags around there these days, her place got done over a while ago, the gardens seem to be filling up with needles too, not a happy sign. She'll not get a place in central London for anywhere near the rent she is paying so is kind of stuck there but has lots of friends locally still.

haha, I hate to think how many pubs I have been barred from over the years! :D

Where abouts was that ? I worked in Vauxhall for 5 years (Cap Gemini) - was a truly nasty area with all the drug users/pushers and the old school crime families (though funny watching a struggling pensioner get out of a merc accompanied by bouncer types before entering a pub (can't remember it's name, belive it is no longer around, but was opposite an infants (?) school on a side street.
