LF's and MUSTACHES
IP: 90.156.104.130


From 1860-1916 the British Army required every soldier to have a moustache!Under Military Law it was mandatory (a sign of manliness and virality - wishful thinking).

I happen to be unable to grow a moustache to my shame!. However, some descriptions of which vary from 'full' as a norm, to ‘outrageous’. The army not being the same as the one I joined (the usual old soldier's complaint) it no longer seems to value the moustache as a militaristic thing and good for soldiers. This compares unfavourably with some of the more warlike types whom we have been sent to sort out recently, though admittedly the idea of some young Fusilier scarcely able to manage a scrawny 'football' moustache (11 hairs a side) is more likely to make the Queen's enemies shake with laughter rather than quake with fear.
It would be convenient to blame it on a softer society, where a scruffy, half-hearted, bumfluff, street-knob goatee is as much as anyone can manage nowadays, but I fear that this is not the case. Well my LF favourites were sported by: Capt. (Retd) John Edgar, our late friends Joe Eastward and Bob Shaw. Anyone else we should remember in the LF’s?
