Kino's thread about battles on youtube brought this to mind.

Does anyone else remember this spectacular annual event?
The brother had the honour of taking part twice. Once when he was a Royal Naval Cadet at HMS Ganges - he had the dubious task of being the 'Button Boy' atop the 90ft high mast. This isn't him - but shows what he had to do!




The second time he took part was as part of a Portsmouth Team in the Field Gun Challenge.



Sadly - another tradition fell to cut backs in expenses as well as in servicemen - the last RT was in 1999.

I think I will do a Blitz of watching YouTubes.

Has anyone seen the Baz Battles YouTube Channel? It chronicles all the Battles that Humanity has Fought against each other over the last few Millennia or so and does show just how Violently and Horrible we Humans have been to each other over several Centuries. Especially in Europe.

Here is the Story of the Battle of Visby:



This was the Battle that resulted in a Archaeological Find of a Mass Grave of the Slaughtered Defenders of the City of Visby.


Most of the Battles Chronicled by Baz Battles are rather obscure but they do have a few well known Battles such as the Battle of Stamford Bridge which is the Battle in which Harold Godwinson defeats the Vikings of Harold Hardrada:




And while most of the Battles chronicled are from the Dark Ages, they do have a few Battles that are from World War 2 such as the Battle to Sink the Bismarck:

I've upgraded my power washer and now it's even more fun. I had the basic Karcher K2 model and it's OK for the small space I've been using it in, but I wanted more control to do less robust surfaces like glass and wood, so I bought a K5 yesterday. It's a bit more powerful and has four pressure settings including one very soft one for mixing detergent. With the old one I had to stick a tube from the machine into the detergent bottle, which means you have to pick the bottle up and carry it every time you move the machine. With this new one the detergent bottle goes in a slot on top of the machine so the game is even more of a doddle than it already was.

I've just done my roof with a solution that's supposed to kill moss and inhibit growth so I'm keen to see how well that works.
I also did my wooden bench. Mistake: On reflection I liked it better when it looked old.
