    Mine is the British 1 Corp Badge with a split red & blue background (normally all red) to signify that the wearer serves in a Royal Artillery Regiment of that Corp. My Dad's Regiment was part of this Corp during WW2.

    Mine is of a time when I was trying desperately to get back on my feet.. after a very long stay in hospital. This was taken at a ball that I attended...Though all I did was sit there. It was a time of great importance to me

    I was just using ctrl to zoom in on your avatar until I realised you'd written 'nippies'. :unsure:


    I did wonder how the starched caps and collars would be held on.

    I remember an interview with James Herbert where he said he had bought a chair once owned by Aleister Crowley and all the floor boards underneath had warped.

    He's not a moderator ! He's just a very cheeky boy !:)

    This is the original image with a little more detail. I didn't think that I'd have to explain 'nippies' on this forum:rolleyes:

    Mine is a Looney Tunes character from the 50s/60s, Marvin the Martian. Nothing really much, unless it reflects my sometimes combative demeanour, as proper of people of small physical stature :D

    It's a good job James Cameron isn't a member of the forum as we could be here all night.
