Those comments should go in a "The Strange Mind of a Mail Reader" thread. Both those people are getting themselves worked up by second guessing what nobody is thinking or saying. Both those people are the type that use fellow queuers in shops as a captive audience for their nonsensical conspiratorial observations of current affairs, acknowledged only by polite nods of heads that contain fervent wishes that the person getting served would hurry the fuck up.

Meanwhile on BBC speke yore branez - a prophet "has a feeling" and addresses the nation.
I think this is going to be the 1918 style epidemic of our time myself, I've got a really bad feeling about this.
In a much more mobile and crowded world complicated by illegal movement of people it's bound get get well and truly out of the bag.

In the light of evidence Fox has apologised for being an ignorant tit. What a liberal woke. No more slots on Julie Hartley-Brewer’s radio show for him for letting the side down.

Happy Australia Day, Larry!

Apparently, Tasmanian Aborigines fought and died with the ANZACS during WWI. For some reason, centred around or about 1905, debate rages as to whether they were full blooded.

I'd guess Fox looks at Rupert Penry-Jones' career with a touch of envy. I've only ever seen Fox in Lewis and he just played himself, without the racism. Scriptwriters often write subconsciously around the actor which may explain why Hathaway was a supercilious cunt too.

Right, who's going to explain to me why the guy in the middle has his sergeant's stripes on upside down, US fashion, whereas the bloke on the left has British style stripes?

Call that oppression.
Try going to Harrow when your dad doesn't own at least one London borough.
That's the white luvvie's burden.

Pure speculation here.
The upside down stripes guy looks to be wearing a cavalry tunic, though his legwear is infantry kit.

Possibility 1: These guys were issued basic kit buy their allies when they arrived in theatre, and the allies weren't too fussy about standardisation.

Possibility 2: He enlisted with a different arm-of service (Central Asia was pretty balkanised at this time and had some distinct horsey areas, while others were arable farm and merchant economies), and was re-assigned later.

The photograph shows members of the Chinese Labour Corps. No Chinese were allowed to join any other Imperial units, although some served in the French army. Employed purely as labourers and translators.

I can't explain why the sergeant in the middle appears to be wearing an American uniform, however.

But being from a different arm of service doesn't explain the upside down stripes. Those are definitely US stripes, I can only think that he's an American seconded to the British army for some reason. I've seen photos from both World Wars of British troops training the US newcomers and, in WW1 the Americans were reliant upon the British and French for modern equipment for which they would require instruction.

I think that Chinese labourers in the US army were civilians, but agree that it's a US uniform.
