Who left the raw onions out?

Posted in Other Stuff, Videos by 200

I don’t normally peruse the website of the Sun, but I picked this one up on a link so0meone sent me in an email and thought it worth sharing.

Corporal Luke Tamata, 31, Lance Corporal Jacinda Baker, 26, and Private Richard Harris, 21, of the Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment were killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Two hundred soldiers of the 1st and 2nd battalions greeted the coffins when the dead soldiers were repatriated.

This is what happened.

    In the days that have now gone
    when the Maoris went to war
    They fought and fought until the last man died
    for the honour of their tribe
    And so we carry on
    the conditions they have laid
    And as we go on day by day
    You will always hear us say…

    Maori Battalion march to victory
    Maori Battalion staunch and true
    Maori Battalion march to glory
    Take the honour of the people with you
    We will march, march, march to the enemy
    And we’ll fight right to the end.
    For God! For King! And for Country!
    AU – E! Ake, ake, kia kaha e!

    Then there’s that loathsome piece of excretia that posted a diatribe against Jacinda Baker as the family were grieving.
    It did backfire somewhat though…….

    She would do well to familiarise herself with one of my favourite quotes;
    “You sleep safe in your beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do you harm”.

    Like the sound of the Last Post, that made my back hair stand on end.

    Saw this from a friend yesterday. Spinetingling and the hairs rose. Not enough words to describe the emotion of it, must have been a draught that caused the drip from my eye!!!

    I just want to say that i have bee reading 200 weeks for quite some time now. I usually come on once a month and catch up with your blog. I am so glad you carried on after your 200 weeks was up because you have a wicked sense of humour along – which i relate to being in comms myself. I have just had a browse at some of the other blogs on your list but have to say that 200 weeks is by far the best and most entertaining. Keep up the good work x

    ‘Tis death, ‘Tis Death,
    ‘Tis life, ‘Tis life
    ‘Tis death, ‘Tis Death,
    ‘Tis life, ‘Tis life
    This is the man,
    the fierce powerful man,
    it was he who captured
    the sun and caused
    it to shine
    It rises and sets,
    Rises and sets
    The Sun Shines!

    Seems very appropriate :)
