    This is a guard from outside the Greek Parliment. Poor guys.

    The walk's bad enough, but to add puffballs to the toes of his shoes?!?! What a disgrace to guards everywhere. Like you said, I feel sorry for them...but at least they get a good workout everyday....

    Default Oh yeah?

    Have a good laugh--then go tell him you think he is a bit pansy-ish.

    Before you do, think "Greek partisans who fought the German Army Jagermeister to a standstill, in mountainous country that would defeat a goat"

    Just have a look at that bayonet on the end of the rifle-it ain't there as a ornament--and the magazine will be full.

    Default Oops!

    Berks2Montco84--my German to English is not very good.

    Should read "Gebirgsjager"-not Jagermeister.



    Whilst we are on the subject of soldiers in skirts and how "s******, s******" pansy like they appear-front up to a Jock regiment in their kilts and tell them how girly they look in their skirts( rather you than me).

    But the scots dont look anywhere near as bad as this poor bloke. And im sure those partisans were not wearing these uniforms when they were fighting the Germans. It would be much like going to war in your formal wear.

    So you're saying that the Scotsman would whoop your butt for calling him a girly, just to prove that he is not? Turn ya into a quivering mass of blubbering fool.

    For sheer weirdness I can never get over the Swiss guards at the Vatican. They look like walking rainbows to me.

    Neither have the sense of style and sophistication of, say, a Marine standing post at the White House or, second best, the 3rd Infantry Regiment at Arlington.

    The part that gets me is the drill. I can't even imagine learning to do parade drill like that. (except maybe after a dozen or so Jagi's......)
