      Greetings Soldiers!

      Who fancies joining me in invading ( boarding? ) HMS Belfast in London this August? around global invasion day. maybe saturday the 25th august? this way we miss all the crowds for the jubilee and olympics and not too close to october expo. so people should have the time and money to attend.

      if 10 people attend we can get in much cheaper as a group and save some coin. thought a meet up in camden, travel to the ship together, have some fun, hand out a bit of prop, brainwash a few strangers, take some cool pics with big guns, even learn abit on the side. then maybe a little tour of the capital? go to forbidden plant and then to cyber candy. then back to camden for drink, food and medals! also might do a competition with a prize again just for giggles.

      simple. just like me.

      once ten people are confirmed coming i can contact the IWM website and book us as a group. this means we get a set time to turn up and take part in the tour and see the ship.

      the price for adults at the group rate is

      Oh I’ve been wanting to do this for aaaaaaaaaaaaages! Ever since seeing the photos from the 97th’s invasion of Battlecove.

      Unfortunately, you’ve picked a date when I’ll most likely be guarding the Olympic Games. Who knows though, I might have a day off if I’m lucky.

      I know this is supposed to be around global invasion day, but it might be easier to get people to come (like dutch) if its later in august

    • Pvt Morglum

      so if i change the date to the 25th august will everyone be okay with that?

    • Evelfa

      25th sounds alright. College might have started (still not sure of the exact date), but at least it’s still on a weekend.

      Ahh this is the same day as the nerfwar in Hyde Park… either this will be the most awesome day ever or a complete clash of things to do haha. Tentatively coming.

      After the fun and games on board HMS Belfast, how about we conga line our way to covent garden and visit cyber candy? then onto tottenham court road to have a butchers inside forbidden planet?

      ….then to camden for beer and medals?

      Mission Report :
      After meeting in the Worlds End pub in Camden at 11am 25th August for a glass of pop each, soldiers Pvt Morglum, Mike McNanner, CBM & Dearest Maximilian GF Sharp headed to the days main destination – a big metal floaty boaty called HMS Belfast.

      On our way we were stopped by a police officer who wanted to check we weren’t going to do anything ‘silly’, which considering one of us was a bearded, pigtailed, kilted little bloke seemed like an odd question, but he must have a different understanding of the word. Either way, he was immediately given prop by Max & we continued on our merry trek, finding JDUK.

      Once on the Belfast, we were fascinated by all the rivets, intrigued by the smells, terrified by the creepy mannequins, unsettled by the amount of asbestos everywhere & those of us in dresses/skirts/kilts were embarrassed by having to climb lots of ladders.

      We explored the lower levels then resurfaced for a photo claiming the vessel as ours & a sit down. Suddenly we heard a voice from the shore calling us & even with Mikes telescope we couldn’t see who it was. Turned out it was Smook! Better late than never but she didn’t have to bring rain with her, silly girl. We headed back inside the boat to the Walrus Cafe for tea, hoping the rain would stop. It didn’t so we had no choice but to carry on to the upper levels, braving the storm. Seriously, there was lightning & everything!

      There was more ‘ooh look at that’, ‘that is ****ing creepy’ & ‘I want that in my house’ type comments all the way round. So many shiny things with lights and buttons on we would never have for ourselves… no matter, to Forbidden Planet & Cyber Candy to spend what little cash we had. Now laden with sweeties & feet throbbing, it was home time. I think it’s pretty safe to say a good time was had by all. Mission successful!
