Alright Guv'

Remember this post? It seems like an age ago, but I am now happy to report that ...

This is Mr Marmalade's old rank marking


And this is his new one


They look like wheels dont they? Apparently they are "Impellas" . An Impella sounds like it should be a small bouncy deer from the plains or South Africa or Kenya, perhaps with strange markings and long spikey horns. But actually, an Impella, is the inside of a fire engine pump. Mr Marmalade did explain the mechanism to me, but I can never understand anything beyond the hose bit ....

And just incase my message isn't clear enough, what with cute leaping deer and firemen's hoses getting in the way..

MR MARMALADE HAS
PASSED THE MOST IMPORTANT EXAM
OF HIS CAREER TO DATE!

Hurrah!!!

But then I always knew he would.


Champagne anyone?

WOOHOO! I knew he would be fine... If I can do it.... (although he is now several ranks higher so I dare say his was a lot harder than mine!!)
