The last part of The Hoppings series concludes with a battle, or rather a display by the army.  Actually I wasn’t quite sure what they were meant to be doing, but lots of army chaps charging about in vehicles, shooting and running about. All good fun. 🙂

Ready for the off

Apparently this rocket launcher thingy can launch a rocket from Newcastle and precisely hit the football stadium in Middlesborough.  No need to shoot that far I thought, the Stadium of Shite in Sunderland would be a much worthier target. 🙂

A Warrior APC (armoured personel carrier)


You’ll never get on Facebook with that!

So that’s that, a great day out and on the way home I saw this and liked it 🙂

    Looks like an entertaining display. Were they recruiting there too? No doubt potential recruits like to see some ‘action’.
    Poor old Sunderland F.C. What have they ever done to you? 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. That makes far more sense than checking the phone!

    I suspect a rocket attack might actually improve the Riverside Stadium :

    I don’t love military anything, but I do like the photos where you captured the smoke so well, those are really cool.

    1. Thanks Jay, to be honest they were more Dad’s Army than crack troops.
