 I thought I would start an opinion box, where we could all come on and say anything about anything on the day. Sometimes I read something that I think would be interesting, yet there is no topic available to report it and starting a new one for what might be just one message seems a little too far, so don't start another, here we have a box where you can have a sentence or two on what's general at the time.

I've been looking into Royal visits (if any) to Buffalo. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth stopped there briefly in June 1939 on their way by train from Canada to Washington. Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) visited the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls in 1860 when he was 18 and later crossed into the USA at Detroit, he never actually visited Buffalo though.

Prince Edward went as far west as St Louis in 1860; not quite the Wild West but I assume it was fairly remote back then?

Yes 1939 was King George VI and Queen Elizabeth  big trip Mark. They stayed  I think just over a month. The Prime minister of Canada at the time (King) escorted them to the States. That was the first time a British King or Queen had ever visited the States.

RE:Don't start another.

It's now been over 400 years since the English colony of Roanoke disappeared, almost without trace, until 100 years ago, when an engraved rock was found which cast some light upon the fate of the colonists. It was carved by Eleanor Dare to her father Governor John White, who had sailed home for supplies, only to return and find them all gone. Eleanor's daughter, Elizabeth was the first colonist to be born in North America. The engraving tells a sorry tale of 'misarie and warre' with half the colony 'slaine with much misarie.' However, since the discovery of the stone there has always remained an element of doubt as to its authenticity as following this discovery a number of other stones were discovered and attributed to Eleanor Dare but were later found to be frauds. This naturally cast doubt on the original Dare stone. Now the stone is to be examined anew, using the latest scientific methods to settle the mystery, fake or real? It would be such a shame if it was a fraud.

I'm very sceptical about these things ever since I was taken in by the story that some boys in California had discovered the plaque erected by Francis Drake in 1579 claiming the continent for England. It turned out to be a fake. 
A stone inscribed by the only settler most of us have ever heard of sounds very suspect.

 There are all kinds of objects or stones with markings found all over the States where it would have been impossible for the people to have been there that are suppose to have written on them. After the Viking out posts were discovered in Newfoundland rocks started appearing in the middle of the continent which people started saying were left by the Vikings. All I'm afraid are just hoaxes. along with the Roanoke stone or the many lost treasures.

For those members & most of the mainstream media talking heads who still have not figured Trump out I suggest you read Discourses on Livy by Machiavelli. Richard Nixon has called it: "The madman theory" of foreign policy. Make you adversaries think you are capable of anything cause you are so rabid to the point of being unhinged. Trump takes this to a new level.

Most leader who practice this Tommy are later considered as Mad by the very people who elected them or who allowed them to take power. What would be the tipping point for you to say enough is enough?

The annual Trooping the Colour, which takes place on the Queens official birthday on Horseguards Parade, which is the largest open area in London. Each  year the various Guards regiments get to parade their regimental flag, which carries their battle honours.

Prince Philip didn't attend this year, he retired from official duties last August, we saw him at the Royal Wedding last month, but that was a family event. 
James Mattis was at Trooping the Colour being guided through the intricacies by the Defence Secretary.

I've been watching western surrender in the war against Islam, for it is a war, just ask any muslim, for the last 20 years and it has accelerated and it continues unabated in our towns cities and streets. They know it, even if we don't, but don't count me in with the higerent, as I've been warning of the growing Islamisation of the west for that last twenty years. I can honestly say, I never thought it could achieve such success in such a short time and I suppose even they think the same, although it was the will of allah, so I suspect they berate themselves for not having enough faith in his voodoo. Ours is a Christian Judaea civilisation, civilisation being the operative word as the modern world was created by that inventive civilisation and that inventive civilisation appears obsessed with surrendering its heritage and customs to islam. Tell me, when was the last time the muslims invited a major Christian leader into a major Islamic mosque? It doesn't happen, if they deem it necessary to invite a major Christian for political taqiyya purposes, they open some back door at some poxy mosque in the back streets. Conversely, we have had muslims invited to hold services in the Vatican, Westminster Abbey and St Paul's, to mention a few. I suspect many of Europe's great Cathedrals have also followed suite. Christian leaders cannot conceive that Islam deems this a great victory, not a service of conciliation, that's for the feeble minded Christians. I don't know if Mark has ever been to Southwark (pronounced suthuck) Cathedral in London, but it has become the latest Christian stronghold to submit and invite a muslim service at its heart. Believe it or not, the service is being held to mark the anniversary of the muslim slaughter at London Bridge. You can't make this stuff up.

 regimental flag?? Flag?? it not a flag laddie buck it a Guidon, or Regimental Colours or Regimental Standards. if you called it a flag in a Regiment they would put you behind bars.

I was impressed with your video Mark because I have never seen the drill movement which they did, used before. They went from an advance in column to an advance in line. It might be a very old drill movement used to form a line of defense when two sides would be facing each other in the open. Very smart looking. Advancing in line or in review order is one of the hardest drill movements to do while still trying to keep your dressing and line straight. We use to do it when giving a general salute but only advanced usually 21 paces before coming to a halt and presenting arms.

Take a look at this from 64. The parade lasts one hour on the actually parade ground, involving the Guards, the Household Cavalry and the Royal Horse Artillery. In this film Lizzie is riding her horse on parade, something she did right up until the 90's when she got too old. She used to ride a mount called Burmese, which was given to her from the Mounties and when that horse retired, so did she from riding on parade. The thing about these old parades is this, the soldiers do look more purposeful than today, if you get my meaning. They are also uniform size, which was compulsory in those days, whereas today the ranks are like a life on the ocean waves, up and down. If the hunchback of Notre Damn's uglier, more lumpy, gay brother wanted to join the parade in his high heels nowadays, we couldn't stop him.

Well Mark, the Sikhs & Gurkas have been excellent cannon fodder for the British army for centuries. They are on the short side which required the English officers to duck down behind them to avoid being hit.

As far as the Gurkhas are concerned it's two centuries now but let's face it Tom, there is no greater glory than a Gurkha who lays down his life for his masters. The Sikhs are famous for their fighting spirit, forged by watching the British army in action.
