Changed the name of this thread as we were very upset with the ending of series 3 out in Bangladesh! Waiting out for news of series 4. In the meantime, we are reviewing the seven series of Soldier Soldier.

Evening, ready for the watchalong tonight at 9pm. Episode 7 of series 4, "Further Education".

I'm here, early for once.

Slightly worried as the picture for this episode shows "Tone" again - hope there's no boxing!

Pressing play, here goes.

ooh the band are playing - it looks like Windsor Castle.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:01:14

Oh yes, here we are back in good old blighty, changing the guard at Windsor.

Tony doesn't seem impressed by the thought that they will be doing ceremonial duties - meanwhile Paddy is carrying out more Mess hijinks.

Dratted internet...

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:02:27

Tony looks less than enamoured at their new duties.

Meanwhile, back in the officers' mess, Paddy is trussed up like a Christmas turkey doing whatever jolly japes these guys do.

Ah yes, I forgot about this guy - he's the new recruit if my memory serves me right.

Colonel looks daft in his PJ's with that hat and sword.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:04:43

Oh no, the colonel is trying to sweet talk his wife into persuading some of the wives to dress up as land girls.

Not sure I could take him seriously dressed up in his ceremonial cap and a dressing gown!

Kinky stuff here - get the ladies to dress up in uniform - well land girl uniforms.

Joy is obviously not enjoying unpacking and seems a bit miffed with Tony. Is he taking his demotion badly?

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:05:15

Tony is not handling his demotion very well and has hit the bottle.

£1.80 a pint of lager...cor those were the days!

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:06:31

Oh, I really hate Tony. What a prannet!

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:07:18

Oh look who's here - Fusillier Farrell - Joe isn't it?

eejittwo Wed 16-Oct-19 21:08:19

O mega boo! I endure the adverts and then the screen goes black instead of starting the titles - so far, more than once.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:08:28

Rhu in NY, we drank beer each evening (wine was extortionate). For a small bottle (third of a pint??), we were paying $9 - about £7.50!

It must be really hard work learning all that difficult marching and ceremonial stuff.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:08:59

Hard luck eejit, very frustrating.

I love this, the way they are rehearsing in the back garden!

Presumably the colonel has rented a nice big house?

That is shocking ilove - not looking forward to Brexit and closer ties to the USA if that's the result!
