Pierce, 

On the previous posted photo of the funeral pillow what unit does the red shield with cross swords represent ?

Not sure, but I think it is from the Bundeswehr.

This last photo just takes me to 'The life of Brian'.

I know this is a serious and somber thread but!

Does anyone find it funny when I mention my friend 'Bigus Dickus'?

He has a wife you know!

Sorry, man, I have not seen that movie. The Spaghetti Westerns is my thing.

I love a bit of Clint and lee van Cleef too!

You should have a look at Monty Pythons Life of Brian, I think you would enjoy that too. It is British humour though so it is a bit dry at times!

I will do it, Rich.

Some time ago I bought a book entitled "1000 movies to watch before you die", and "Life of Brian" is included in that list.

By the way, and according to my humble opinion, Peter Sellers is the summun of British humor.

All the best,

Jaime

I am afraid I don't. Here is a better photo of the funeral pillow though.

In the next page, the question was asked what the shield with the "S" and crossed swords is. Here is a great thread explaining this very thing.
