That's quite a motley crew... what was this gathering for?
Chris: Something to do with the National Health Service Elizabeth. We have a tradition of loving this thing even though it is hugely inefficient, largely due to government indifference..

Ils ont tous le même imperméable. Qu'attendent-ils ?

They look excited, Chris...I think they have just noticed you arrival, and can barely contain themselves...

yes, combined in the struggle against the rain - typically stoic, hardy English people, fully inspired with their charity engagement!
Chris: Supporting our NHS Philine
A meeting of the pac-a-mac appreciation society?

Doctors and nurses then, Chris?

Another fashion trend and they all pile in Tiff.
Chris: Remember the mods & rockers Chad? Same thing..
The woman in pink has her mind on Nation Security and it is obvious she sees you as a threat to same.
Chris: She does not trust me and would object if I stated my intention to marry her daughter..

Was this a visit to Bath by the Disposable Coat Society (South West branch)?
Chris: I think it must have been, from the look of 'em
If it's to do with the NHS the why isn't that girl in the foreground at school, or did her headmaster give her the day off to protest.
Chris: A very good question Brian
A curious gathering - was it a junior docs meeting?
Chris: Possibly friends of the local hospital Tom

I learn a lot of life in the UK, by reading the repartee for this posting.

First thought: It is a gathering of the Salvating Army - can't be the Salvation lot, since they have no instruments.

Second thought, after seeing it is about NHS: The theme must be "Wear your protection". Even so, the guy in green is naughty to leave his cup on the ledge.

Third thought: I now understand the Barmy Army a lot better.
