Messing About On The Water

Was enjoying a glass of Pimms on the Thames the other day and as the waves lapped the hull and the heat beat down I almost came over all misty eyed recalling campaigns up the Limpopo against Sultan Dodjibotti and his slavers back in the day. Poor old Haversham... Harrumph!

Anyhow, thought you Little Wars chappies might be interested in these jolly little models of one of our sterling Royal Navy picket boats by some wallahs at an enterprise called Honourable Lead Boiler Suit Company. They also do a couple of Russkie boats which no doubt will sink very quickly. TTFN.

Jolly boating weather,
And a hay harvest breeze,
Blade on the feather,
Shade off the trees,
Swing swing together,
With your bodies between your knees,
Swing swing together,
With your bodies between your knees.

“There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. In or out of ‘em, it doesn’t matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that’s the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don’t; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you’re always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you’ve done it there’s always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you’d much better not.”
