Topic: Happy Saint Barbara's Day!


I wish a happy Saint Barbara Celebration to all Redlegs all around the World!

Today, December 4, is the greatest day of all for us Redlegs.
The Saint Barbara celebration has been a tradition for the artillery since about 1400.

You can read more about the Legend here:

But I don't have time to write more now, I'm off to the celebration at my camp.

As Napoleon once said: "The Fire is Everything, the rest Nothing...."

Just keep your ears open for any arty going off, I'll bet you that'll be 'im.

Yeah, I guess they do got patron saints for everything. But as far as I'm concerned, I've only got one patron saint: General George S. Patton Jr.
