Amen to that Redleg, and cheers to all the others!

It's the day calling for a salute, but the weather here is horrible, the powder would be totally soaked in rain before I could set the charge now.

Upon time I upgrade for breach loading maybe...

Well sir, you may prefer otherwise, but most of us fancy girls you see...

But it's a free country, so you may do as you like.

I guess it makes sense since by their own admission Arty is "The Queen."

If I had been one of those driving on the wrong side of the road I'd shout out a loud and clear "God save the Queen!" here.

But I'll settle with my own point here, big guns and charming girls are sound interests in my opinion, while the oposite leads me think about certain activities that are officially prohibited in the US armed forces...
But I don't know for sure, as I understand the USMC has always been a kind of unique institution on their own.

St. Michael the Archangel is the patron saint of the Marines. He is said to have defeated Lucifer in battle.
Sounds right - all Marines are angels.
