PINS – Rule Thirty-eight: Yet More Manoeuvres

‘Where are we going?’ We don’t know because we are on manoeuvres. And will be all summer, for as long as it rains, any road. Find out more, here. Below are some images that will help you get about, wherever you are.

PINS – Rule Thirty-seven: On Manoeuvres

When we are on manoeuvres we need to know how to look out of the back of the Morris Oxford’s window, or ensure we wear the correct cricket whites. You can find out about that here. For now, peruse these images that were once taken by persons unknown, or once known but no longer, on manoeuvres.


PINS – Rule Thirty-six: Backing up

You need people to back you up, whether living or dead. They help you rally round and also help you light the fire, but take note; don’t put the fire ash in the normal bin! Read here for more information about backing up.

PINS – Rule Thirty-five: Rallying Round

However glum you get, you have to rally round. You can find a whole set of ideas here, on how to pull yourself together. And don’t listen to them numbnuts they are like animals they are, ignorant and crude. Just check these images instead, and maybe photocopy them.

PINS – Rule Thirty-four: Danger Zone, Steady Up!

Oh heck, things are getting tricky, the Danger Zone can be an uncertain place full of experienced people who don’t give a damn and maybe you’re not the sort of character who should be there. But this is PINS and PINs is a life we’ve all been through.  More Danger Zones are described here. For now, draw your qwayout of trouble, it’s the only way. Don’t be soft!


PINS – Rule Thirty-three: More Unsteady Zones

Oh heck, things are getting unsteady, we need to keep hold of our pins and wait on our C.O. otherwise all hell’ll be brekkin loose like it does down Funnies on a Friday neet.

PINS – Rule Thirty-two: The Unsteady Zone

Elite troops keep the morale of other units steady in the Unsteady Zone. That’s the place where contact with the opposing force occurs.
You can read all about that here, along with why you musn’t leer, or be a lummox at the Con Club whist drive.

PINS – Rule Thirty-one: More food.

There are lots of places to go and things to do with a full stomach, so the most important thing is having no interference in the kitchen. That’s where the food is.


For their own comfort and safety, children under 5 and babes-in-arms are not admitted.

These photocopies accompany a post that is not a rule as such, it’s more an adjunct to Rule Twenty-nine and a reminder. You need to put some meat on your bones. And you need to make sure everyone is out of the kitchen. Don’t be soft and don’t be numb.

PINS – Rule Thirty: Marching on an empty stomach

The Museum doesn’t like to unduly quote Napoleon, for as we all know, Boney was a warrior, Boney was a thief. But he was right when he said, an army marches on its stomach.  Here are some images to make you think about marching on your stomach.  Click here to find out how you can march on a full one.

PINS – Rule Twenty-nine: Where are our Enemies?

In PINS, and in life,  we have to know where our enemies are.  Luckily we have some rules to show where they are. You can read about them here. For now here are some images to help you work out where your enemies are.
