Jeez, it certainly is a bit squiffy in here. Everyone seems to be completely &#$^holed. Time for a lap of the mess without touching the carpet!

Gents!

A fine job you are doing emptying my wallet of its monetary stipend with the purchase of fine spirits and ale!! Continue with tales of glory, frivolic banter and general rowdiness. I will settle up with the bar keep shortly for our outstanding tab!

Cheers!

Here's a round for those poor ' basket danglers'! You know... the fellas stuck under those huge inflammable gas bags! I've never seen a chute open, yet, for the ones I've gotten. Poor devils!

Alright you lot, lend me your ears. Having quaffed a sufficient number of stouts as well as a full six fingers of Aberfeldy I am now properly adjusted and am moved to recite a classic bit of poetry as regards our calling.

(Amid hoots, whistles, and cheers of encouragement, Lou weaves his way to the middle of the room, climbs upon a table, straightens his tunic, drains yet another stout that is handed up to him, clears his throat, and begins.)

The Flight to Flanders, by Lessel Hutcheon of the RFC.

Does he know the road to Flanders, does he know the criss-cross tracks
With the row of sturdy hangars at the end?
Does he know that shady corner where, the job done, we relax
To the music of the engines round the bend?
It is here that he is coming with his gun and battle 'plane
To the little aerodrome at - well, you know!
To a wooden hut abutting on a quiet country lane,
For he's ordered overseas and he must go.

Has he seen those leagues of trenches, the traverses steep and stark,
High over which the British pilots ride?
Does he know the fear of flying miles to east-ward of his mark
When his only map has vanished over-side?
It is there that he is going, and it takes a deal of doing,
There are many things he really ought to know;
And there isn't time to swot 'em if a Fokker he's pursuing,
For he's ordered overseas and he must go.

Does he know that ruined town, that old --- of renown?
Has he heard the crack of Archie bursting near?
Has he known that ghastly moment when your engine lets you down?
Has he ever had that feeling known as fear?
It's to Flanders he is going with a brand-new aeroplane
To take the place of one that's dropped below,
To fly and fight and photo mid the storms of wind and rain,
For he's ordered overseas and he must go.

Then the hangar door flies open and the engine starts its roar,
And the pilot gives the signal with his hand;
As he rises over England he looks back upon the shore,
For the Lord alone knows where he's going to land.
Now the plane begins to gather speed, completing lap on lap,
Till, after diving down and skimming low,
They're off to shattered Flanders, by the compass and the map -
They were ordered overseas and had to go.

(At this point Lou, who had been getting progressively more wobbly as his recitation went on, loses what little footing he has left and to the roar of applause goes arse-over-tea-kettle backwards into the crowd. He is helped to his feet, propped against the bar, and handed another pint.)

Thank you, thank you, you are gentlemen and scholars each and every one of you. BWOC BWOC BWOC!

Rob steps up on the table to add his tuppence worth and with some hearty throat clearing he builds on Lou's fine recitation.

Now in parliament, the hot air is flowing
And the red tabs they are glowing
For the scotch is liberally flowing through the night.

It's not bitters they are liking
For that's far below their striping
while to he'll in a hand basket we are flying as they play.

So with thanks I bid adieu
as I raise my glass to the few
who have willingly paid their dues
that the rest of us may see another day.

Stepping down from the table Rob weaves his way to the bar for a refill

There once was a bored Hun in the sun
Who thought hunting gasbags would be fun
So he made a great dive
At a hundred and five
But his wings only made ninety one.

He was shocked and appalled
As he fluttered and stalled
For though his engine still thundered
From his wings he was sundered
While the gasbag crew looked on enthralled.

No wreath took they down to his coffin
For such sights were seen all too often
And scattered there lay
'Cross Belgique and Francais
They whose patience and time had auslaufen.

Listen up you lot, I've an announcement of import! It appears Nowi, several month ago, made application to be counted among our ranks, however said application was overlooked somehow, (I'm blaming it on a temporary rift in the space-time continuum). Regardless of the reason, this oversight shall not stand. I recommend that Nowi be made immediately a member of questionable standing in our little group. "Aye!" says I. What say you all?

That was an application? I thought it was the “stationary” for our latrines. My bad, I’ve used it all up. I say he’s in! Now, where is that cricket bat again?

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."

Perhaps not an honest mistake Fullofit, but a barmy one to be sure.

ROBERT! Prepare the bat.

Good sirs, I would like to officially put forth my application to join your upstanding club. I do believe Mr Raine would ve willing to vouch for me after I ply him with a guiness or six.

I will mention that after a couple of drinks, I tend to enjoy buying many rounds for my friends!

DC, you are qualified and then some to join this barmy lot. Plus, any man who is so willing to spend his stipend on rounds for the club has my vote. "Aye!" says I!

Now where is Robert with that cricket bat, likely off shining it up again. I feel he's grown a bit too fond of it, but then who I am to talk. I once had a pet rock, named it Wilton Gneiss, carried him around with me nearly everywhere I went. Lost him fishing out in Lake Superior one day, slipped and dropped him overboard. I was crushed, just stood in the boat crying out, "WILTON! WILTON! Come back Wilton!"

Good old Wilton, best rock I ever had.

I think I've found the claims board member.

Welcome to the madness, Nowi and Dark_Canuck. Im glad there's two of you. I thought I was seeing double.

Actually Maeran, these are the claims board members, (and have been for far too long in my opinion):
