Davysemtex gets the reward for the worst analogy ever. 36th Ulster Division compared to winning a game of rugby? HHmmmm. :?

It was a sort of victory - but only second time around. But with respect - weren't the French on our side then??!!
Hope is not a strategy.

Well said JB.

A wanton destruction of human life v winning a rugby match. My goodness.

Excellent point JB but how you can call any war great I don't know, always boiled my push that.

The common herd slaughtered in a row between German royals. The French had the right idea off with their heads.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

Don't be an idiot Tommy, cannon fodder about whom neither their commanders nor government gave a flying feck. Conscripts told to walk into any sort of fire for a meaningless 50 metres of field.

So much bullshit wound around the sacrificial lambs.
