Re: Ask a question; pass it on (3)

Post  Mathew De Guarde on Tue Sep 15, 2009 9:03 pm

I wouldn't say so. Even if we carry our food and are in our 'shelter' we aren't all that better of. A simple example here, if a storm comes we are far worse of than you could be. We can sink and drown or be thrown of a mast, or swept of the deck!
Our work is intense and doesn't stop just because the night had fallen! Not to mention lasses. You can have them following your camp all the time, our sailors have to do with that when on shore leave. And climbing up the masts, that's very dangerous in strong winds all of its own. As far as fresh food goes, is it not easier for the army to get hold of it, than us, too?

Why do you believe that less people die at sea, than they do on land?

I lost 40% of my men and horses in the last battle.

How much did your Captain loose in your last battle?

No, it definitely doesn't. I find it can often make it worse.

*shyly* Once I broke a bone in my foot, and it was very sore to ride upon. I do not complain, for it was only a very small bone, but since you asked, sir.

And now I ask a question, yes?

Yes, you always answer a question n' then you can ask one. Any sort that you're interested in.

I have many many friends in the 95th - my husband is a Brigade-Major in the 95th! And, yes, I see now - we in the 95th have grey.

How old are you?

Post  Sir Arthur Wellesley on Wed Sep 30, 2009 6:14 pm

40 years old, my dear, although it does not seem all that long ago that I was 25.

Does that make me the most decrepitly aged one around here?

No, sir! *very quietly, even though he has no idea what the word dec.. should mean.*

Do you like animals?

Um, did some, yes. Most of us did, sir.

Do you consider all animals as food?

The first meal I ate after a long convalescence with fever. I don't even recall exactly what it was, only that there was much fruit. But anything tastes wonderful after days of gruel!

To reverse it: what is the worst meal you've ever eaten?

There was a terribly unfortunate dinner in Muzillac - back in 1797. Or the one on the Berry ...

Beer. Or grog. (You don't half ask funny questions, you know. An' that's a funny-looking colour coat you got on, too.)

What's the thing you's proudest of doin', ever?

Have to what? Oh. Retreat. Well, yes, if you's outgunned 'cause you managed to run into a bigger ship. Ain't no shame in that after all. Better to run away from a seventy-four when you'm only n a frigate, 'cause elsewise you'd only get pounded into matchwood, and that wouldn't do nobody any good, would it?

What's the scariest situation you've ever bin in?

Oh, I can name you a few. Depends what sort of scary you mean though, because there ain't just one.

Have you ever wondered what lies in the deepest depths of the sea?
