    Thanksgiving Wishes


    Recommended Posts

    Thanksgiving : I work in a private gentleman's club in Australia and we had 143 members and guests celebrating Thanksgiving at dinner here last night. America conquers the world! Keep well everybody! Satsuma

    Hi Dieter!

    They were all Aussies to the last. Go figure. I hope they were respecting this honorable America institution and weren't just looking for any excuse to party. Certainly, either way, a good time was had by all. And now it's Christmas...

    Keep well

    Good on ya mate!

    Keep well and I look forward to learning a lot more about our shared interests in the new year.

    In the meantime, I was watching some Imperial Japanese Navy footage on You Tube and noticed two drill movements I never saw before - both related, I guess, to minimising the chance of losing one's balance when one's ship is steaming on high seas.

    I trained in Australia's navy reserve and this training is traditionally similar to what is taught in the Royal Navy.

    We never learned these moves.

    Now, many IJN traditions have been taken from the traditions of the RN.

    Therefore, I'm thinking these two drill steps/positions are unique to the IJN.

    One, (midshipmen?) is at the 22 second mark.

    Two, (NCO's?) is at the 1 minute 37 second mark.

    Last, I apologise if this is not the best location on the club site to offer this observation.

    Anyway, please forgive me if this is the case.

    2010. Yay!
