    We will, we always do:thumb:

    Its a shame that St Patricks Day gets more press in England than St George, So come on you English, celebrate the day, Be Proud to be English, Proud to be born in one the best countries in the world::thumb: "Cry God for Harry! England and St George" ::bigsmile:

    I celebrated once as i was teaching at Saint Georges school in Middlesbrough. I remember that one of the teachers had bought a bottle of "Nuit Saint georges" ..... nice french wine!
    We had a nice evening!

    There is nothing so patriotic as an ex-pat.

    Speaking of ex-pats us chaps over here in Tenerife (well in Costa del Silencio anyway) will be celebrating all things British/English...bunting.. flags.. brit beers and a G and T or two:thumb:at our local Brit owned boozer The Albatros (The Inn On The Village) and extolling the virtues of England..We will also be celebrating the forthcoming Royal wedding too!!

    When I was a member of HM Forces my former Regiment (1DWR) always celebrated St Georges Day as one of our Regimental Days as the St Georges Cross was incorporated in our cap badge..so I always flew the flag!!

    Here at Pinar San Jose, Zahora we will be commencing our St Georges Day celebrations at 1400 hours. ::bigsmile:

    We are expecting rain so we will be celebrating inside a barn. We will be eating great food prepared by our fellow campers including Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings and drinking Pimms, what better way to celebrate!

    The campsite owner has donated a barrel of beer as well, we will overlook the fact that its Spanish! :RollEyes:

    Will post photo's after the event, hope you all have a good one.:thumb:

    good idea, however, ... correctly, flag protocol is to fly the host countries flag at the top of the mast ..

    as to the OP question .. errrr no.. but to all Sasanachs.. have a happy St George's day :Cool:

    Point of interest.. Muslim literature also depicts George as a martyr, I hope the EDL know this .. :roflmto:

    We'll probably fly the flag tomorrow and then the Union Jack (as we know it) next week for the wedding.
