"Everyone ready? Right...just try to avoid knocking over that codger standing in our path..."
Chris: I'll have you know I am perfectly nimble on my feet, especially when running after good looking gals!

........set, go.....
I think they communicate about going to the pub once they finished the march...
Great shot and great title.
Chris: Thank you Astrid: this was all part of an annual thing in Bath, the purpose of which now escapes me..

Some of those young expressions are priceless, Chris
Chris: They were all wonderful Lisl, I think they pick 'em for their photo-eligibility
I agree with Lisl great expressions Chris well captured.
Chris: Thank you kindly Scotia
for a rousing rendition of Boom bang-a-bang
Chris: Frankly it's too early in my day for any booming, or banging for that matter..

Why is it that the men look so boring and obeying and the girl is being delightfully nosey and 'ready to go' in a most enthusiastic way ... she will go far.
Chris: And you of course will offer her private tuition - VERY NOBLE OF YOU!
So smart in their uniforms, Chris.
Chris: Good to see isn't it Pauline
I love all the expressions you have captured. A shame about the leopards killed in the making of this photo
Chris: I expect they're artificial Mary

To commemorate the start of World War I? Many of least are probably the same age of the millions that were killed in that conflict.
Chris: A sobering thought
I anticipate a lot of loud drum beating, Chris. Excellent shot!
Chris: Oh yes - there was that alright Bev!
The delight of such a picture is of course the one person not doing the same as everybody else.
Chris: That was the point of it Brian. Would your judges like this idea I wonder?

It looks like the drums are obscuring someone's view Tiff.
Chris: I'd saw 'em in half Chad
I was in the ATC, but we didn't have a band!
Chris: Bet you cut a dash in your uniform tho' Tom!
Bit of a rough deal for the poor old cheetahs, I wonder how this tradition came about.
Chris: Hopefully these are artificial ones Martin but I doubt whether the originals were
