    Default In Ger Land

    Would the raggies be really upset if I changed my ensign to a Cross of St George?

    Can you get Fog Horns that play "The Great Escape"?

    Will I go to work on Wednesday morning?

    Will I ever eat corned beef again?

    Flying the Cross is a privilage allocated to the Dunkirk little ships only and is the subject of a special warrant. The raggies are the least of your worries if the authorities catch up with you the fine will change you whole perspective of the subject.

    Interesting point of contention here..............

    The Dunkirk Jack is a St Georges Cross flown as a 'Jack', not as an ensign.

    If I want to fly my countries flag I will - and no jumped up civil/public servant will stop me. Flying the cross of St George on my boat has nothing to do with anything nautical and everything to do with supporting the English football team. Just let someone try and tell me to take it down!!!!



    Politically incorrect and proud of it.
