    Default Claims to fame

    After reading through some of the experiences that our members have had on MLC's thread about 'best rides', I thought It would be interesying to find out what sort of claims to fame people have had. So I'll start off: I was in Blackadder Goes Forth. The regiment I was attached to at the time (3rd btn Royal Anglian Regiment) did the credits at the beginning and end. Rowan Atkinson is a right grumpy t**t.
