No wonder they British Army finally turned from red to khaki, Bill
Bill Phillips: I believe they were originally red to hid the blood so that others wouldn't be discouraged

I saw the Chelsea veterans at the CFS - smoking, drinking wine and eating ice-cream- they enjoyed their life fully - not averse to flirting, too.
Bill Phillips: They are wonderful characters Philine
he looks very smart with the turtle neck and the medals against the red fabric, Bill.
Bill Phillips: The traditional red British tunic. Made them such easy targets in the American war of independence
I like the way you've finished this off Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Brian. I thought for a second you said him
Stick your chest out soldier.
Bill Phillips: He's not been well

he looks quite young for a Chelsea Pensioner. I notice that people of his generation did not seem to have an issue with their glans which seem to affect the size of modern stomachs these days smile
Bill Phillips: Did you mean Glans?
Nice presentation, Biull.
