    Default Need help from some European brothers

    Hey all, I have a project that I am working on and I need a wee bit of assistance. My family is very much in to its history and we have traced our family back to 1127 somewhere around Stirling in Scotland (I don't have all of the exact details at hand). My father is getting up in years and his health is beginning to fail and my brothers and I have started a little project for him. We are making a wall plaque of our ancestral coat of arms and we really want to surround it with fire dept patches. We would REALLY love to get our hands on some dept patches from Scotland, preferably from the areas of Stirling and Dunblane. We are then going to add the patches of depts that all of us have served on to show where our family began and where it has gone. If anyone has any patches that they are willing to let go of I would be forever grateful and I am willing to trade or buy.

    Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

    We get offended when people do that. Kiwis are a seperate species to us and the rest of the world. I hear that half their kids born nowadays have wool instead of hair.

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

    Kids are young goats. (Is this an Aussie thing?)

    Lambs are young sheep

    Methinks you be confused.

    touche.
    You know i meant children. Over here we dont need to bother discerning whether we are talking about our children or farm animals.

    I want one as well.
    I should be able to report my own bad posts. Looking at the thread killer's thread there has been a few too many bad puns.
