As previously announced, oldbikerbill’s winner for Caption Competition #414 was Whinge Commander for the following caption:

After a knee trembler behind the bike sheds, Samantha and Tarquin steel themselves for an hour of Latin.

I would be grateful therefore if Whinge Commander could select the winner of this competition when it ceases to be a 'Sticky' and would appreciate it if his winner does the same the following week.Ta.

This week’s picture features soldiers wearing gas masks while peeling onions at Tobruk in October 1941.

This picture is apparently one of a number of B&W Historic Photos restored to full colour bringing the past to life. These were kindly first posted recently by Boundah in the Potential Caption Competition Photos thread.

Bloke on left: 'When her spin doctor said 'Yvette Cooper has balls' I thought she was talking about her husband rather than all these prosthetic testicles'

Bloke on right: 'Steel yourself for the insertion operation. She's on her way.'

Ant: Are you sure this will get us a knighthood:

Dec: Bound to man, if peeling spuds for the troops won't swing it, we can always take up bike riding.

Hoskins and Riley were given time to reflect on their wisecracks about the Sergeant Major having had six pickled eggs and a prawn vindaloo, all washed down with eight pints of Guinness.

Next time you yell 'bollocks' at the CSM, you make sure you're standing next to another sapper.

Bloke on left: "So then Gerry what do you think you'll be doing after you've single handedly cleared up the rest of these sour Krauts?"

Gerrybear: "Good question my fellow limey. I think I'm going to try my hand at becoming a school headmaster. Kick some of those little brats arses and knock 'em into shape so they're up to it next time the Hun decide to pay us a visit!"

Bloke on right: "Yeh, next time he can bloody well get his own tats on his visit to LIDL"
