Chris: Appropriate clothing for our winter weather Peter, which I expect you would call warm..

The Don Cossacks have arrived!

I would have enjoyed seeing and hearing these, Chris
Chris: I encountered them in Broadmead sometime before Christmas Lisl
This reminds me of those "Who f***ed" pictures that were popular at one time
Chris: Yes it does, a thought that had not occurred to me until now..

I'm sure it is another olde merrie English ritual -now also joined by women, too! I see also a soldier on the right and the words 'Army Music', I bet we are in Bath the centre of lots of amusements!
Chris: This is in Broadmead, the main shopping area in the centre of Bristol Philine. They were playing carols before Christmas

Lovely to see a military band. I expect that they go a fair amount in donations; even I may have put in 10p or so.
Chris: You are generous to a fault.

Or your generosity is faulty..

Is this the famous tune with no notes.......
Love the uniforms, I hope they have warm fingers for the next merry tune.
Ginnie will be operated on in 30 minutes...... Waiting is the most worst thing there is.......
Chris: I have only come back to the computer now Astrid, by now Ginnie will have had it all done. Please let me know how it all went.

They don't look full of the joys of Christmas, Chris. Love the uniforms.
Chris: They're proper army so there no mucking about here Pauline
If they sing badly they can take up jobs as painters since they all have paint brushes.
Chris: You tell them that Mary, I won't..
The guy in the camouflage on the right looks so out of place with this delightfully uniformed band.
Chris: He is recruiting Brian
the reds stand out from a mile away... very effective shot, Chris
Chris: Thank you Ayush

I find their hats very interesting Chris
Chris: I wish I knew what regiment it is Robbyne
They are looking very smart Chris. The Red Army Choir have got a funny video out called "Happy" ( I think)
Chris: I'll check it out Janet
All very nicely turned out,I bet the music was also very good.
Chris: It was very professional Martin, just as you might exect

They never gave us any sheet music
Chris: Can you play the horn Comrade?
They are certainly going to keep warm - love those greatcoats!
Chris: Wonderful eh Tom. I've just noticed they're all wearing spurs, must be some sort of cavalry regiment perhaps?
