    A fantastic room! Amazes me at the quality and amount of swords in Australia. See the Armadillo?
    I (almost) feel odd at owning Charles Sturt sons sword, Charles Sheppey Sturt (being so Australian).

    Just wait a bit old chap, and let me tell you I'm also an Aussie, and often have tea brewed in my 1826 sterling silver teapot presented by the officers of the 91st (Argyllshire Highlanders) Regiment of Foot.

    Gordon,
    How about rugby?
    I don't know what I would give to run after the oval again.

    Hi Dan,
    When younger and able, fencing was my sport, Epee and Foil.

    Gordon,
    What do you mean "younger and able" ?
    We are still here, a bit less youngs, a bit less ables and enjoying passions even though Mark was ex-rugby, you ex-mousquetaire and me ex-rugby.
    At 70, I resumed my shooting career in IPSC and believe me, my knees are not what they were but I have a blast.

    Me too, outside centre (no. 13). A few more and we’ll have a team.

    May be numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,12,14 and 15 will chime in ?
    Who knows....a nice international team named "The Old Farts" ?
    Right now we have the Rose (Richard), the Eagle (Mark) the Coq Gaulois (Dan)....

    Sorry Cathey and Rex....we hi-jacked your post; anyway, as Wallabees, you will understand.

    None of us from the penal colonies get any respect or know why you don't just use A,B,C,D.............instead of 1-15. Eric

    Hi Guys,
    No 10 here, position was called Stand Off when I played regularly so that might give you an idea of when that was, hint, started playing as a young teenager over 50yrs ago.
    Regards,
    Norman.


    P.S. Cathey and Rex, what a great display. Wishing all a Happy Christmas and a Prosperous and Peaceful New Year.

    Hi guys

    Rex drink gin and tonic as it’s the cricket season, if you are English you might know the Ashes are on, I believe the score is 3 zip. Personally Cathey hates cricket and prefers a single malt whiskey. With regard to Gordon who is a good friend, whenever we are in Melbourne we stop by to have tea from the 1826 sterling silver teapot presented by the officers of the 91st (Argyllshire Highlanders) Regiment of Foot. Always tastes better served with history.

    Cheers Cathey and Rex

    Gee...

    Norm, was'nt that the times they were playing with pig's bladders with "Gilbert" painted on them ?
    (I'm on the same boat).

    Yup, getting whacked on the leg on a cold damp winter's morning with one of those was a 'joy' I remember well! I'm sure some of the guys forgot that we were playing 15 a side and not 11. 'Football (Soccer) was a Gentlemans game played by hooligans and Rugby was a hooligans game played by Gentlemen', not sure how true this is as we had some right hooligans in our 1st XV, cold showers, warm beer and unrepeatable songs, wonderful days, glorious memories.

    Souvenirs....souvenirs....
    Like playing at 0 degree"C"on a frozen lawn during college PT periods.
    I'll always remember what it is like to put back a jean after the training....like rubbing sand paper on the legs.

    I played at no. 9...scum-half...nothing like getting those "roasties" from frozen African dirt and all of those stud marks up one side, and down the other....
