If one looks at the World Wide popularity of Kilt Wearing and of the Men in Skirts ...
the Men in Skirts is probably a more a more Economic and Practical Style of attire..

However there is a question as to how the style may become popular by acceptance in society................weeladdie

There wasn't a tradition with Vikings of burying helmets with other grave goods and armaments so authentic helmets are few and none have the horns. But apparently there is a tapestry that depicts a horned helmeted Viking. So who knows, maybe they did.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I have some questions;
Which clan has an "ordained" chief, the title is simply hereditary and honorary only in the vast majority of cases?
What relevance is there to the meaning or origin of the word "kilt" to modern life?
On what basis is the assertion made that kilt wearing in Scotland has declined, anecdotal or statistical?
What has the variety of available tartans got to do with the style of Viking Headgear?
Does the inclusion of frogmen, flying boats and dukws advance our understanding of anything in a meaningful way?
My only wish is that Since1982 could be here to give his thoughts on the subject.
That, gentlemen would have been very interesting indeed!
Steve.

Rob,
As we all know, Ireland is the only real banana republic in Europe. Fyffes have a humongously large banana distribution centre near Dundalk.!

The floatation fenders on the DUKWs used by Dublin Viking Tours are a Health & safety requirement when the vehicle is full of fare-paying revellers.

Yes, Dorset, Studland, Lulworth and Poole Hb. is a fascinating coastline/area....England's 'Durassic' coast, named I understand from the vast number of fossils found there. We often visited when we kept our shared GK29 at Hamble and more often than not there would be one of two yots aground in Poole Hb. awaiting a tide to get them off. Perhaps that's where a DUKW would come in handy....as a tow-off vehicle. They are very powerful. Re: priority, If you're aground, you're aground!

A lot of Poole Hb. is so shallow that it is more than wise to follow the marked channels. We've also had a fair few picnics on Brownsea Island, of course.

Tom

There was a Bananna Run from The West Indies to Bristol ..In the U.K......
The Refrigeration in the ships controlled the ripening of the banannas
to ensure the fruit reached the market in prime condition......Rod

Holton Heath in the Purbecks was a Large Munitions Factory.....
To prevent the Germans bombing Holton Heath ...decoy petrol petrol fires were lit on Brownsea Island.....

Many of the planes turned and discharged their bombs on Swanage.....Swanage received more Air Raids than London...
My old family home was bombed twice....the family were unable to return to their home until the early Fifties

Worth Matravers , just south west of Swanage was home to the High Early Warning mast arrays....High on the cliffs....

Much of the Horsa Glider production for the D. Day landings was carried out in the Poole area....
there were several airfields in the area..........Bournemouth Airport is now a big international airport

Tom... There is probably a more modern Type of Amphibious D.U.K.W. used for transporting Personnel and stores from Marazion
To St Michaels Mount in Cornwall ....Many of the commercial Supplies delivery vehicles have to wait for low tide to cross
The Causeway to the Island...
There was also a Duck type vehicle used in North Devon in the Appledore / Instow area....

If I remember correctly Instow had a Marinisation unit to develop the wading capabilities of the vehicles which landed on the D.Day beaches
during the Assault landings.
There is a museum which had a display of the Funnies which were the Royal Engineers special assault equipment used to clear the mines
and barbed wire from the beaches...Chain flails and flame throwers were developed for the tanks.
The Rocket powered giant wheel was a failure as its movement could not be controlled
I remember reading about this project in the John Bull Magazine when I was a Kid

there was a Baily Bridge Section at Westward Ho...The Ducks had a base at Westward Ho.. They went over the Bridge and swam to Instow.

Down here In Cornwall they will be having a yellow plastic duck race in one of the village streams
....not quite the same shape as your Banana D.U.K.W............L.O.L.
