Go Darke

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

History

Ride for life

There was a time when competitive equestrian prowess included being able to jump a barricade and shoot a straw-man in the face with your Webley. Which, to be fair, does inject an element of… escapade into an otherwise dull event..

The straw-man I imagine was likely a representation of what a mounted officer might encounter on the field of battle at the time… an uppity native or a striking coal miner.

This picture was taken at the 1st Life Guards sports day at Hyde Park, London, August 1919.

Afterwards everyone had a cup of tea and a jolly time was had by all.

    Hey as long as they’re not shooting foxes for sport, or otherwise, I’m good with it.

    I suppose it would be fun to shoot fake people in the face 🤷‍♀️
    That’s my two cents
