Default Let me introduce myself.......

I am General Sir Bertram Sebastian Chit Chat

I am the third son of Sir Humphrey Horatio Chit Chat, from a long line of Chit Chats, all of whom have covered themselves with military glory, and my mother was the daughter of a lowly sagger-makers bottom knocker (google it!) in the village of Mavis Enderby in the heart of England. As a boy I found my time was taken up with the pursuit of fencing, and I spent many a long hour practising on the servants and my dear old nanny, who I am sure remember me fondly to this day.

At the age of 14 the army came through town on a recruitment drive, so I lied about my age and with my fathers words (no Chit Chat ever runs away!)echoing in my head I joined up there and then. I was trained at Gravelhurst Military Academy in the heart of the West Sussexcestershire countryside.

After a long and glorious military career in England, there was an unfortunate misunderstanding involving a nun and a leg of mutton, and I thought it best to travel abroad. After some adventures in the Carribean (best not to ask about those) I landed in the colonies in search of fame and fortune and more battles.
I fought in many battles, most notably at the Battle of Grazed Elbow,after which I had to retire.
Now I intend to travel the world, avoiding of course that angry nun, and seek to see and understand more of world. Without having to kill anyone.
Now I have been unceremoniously stuffed into a handbag and taken to Belgium, and thence to Stockholm, although that journey was enlived by the charming belly dancers.

My friends I've taken up enough of your time, I hope to see you when I call.

Yours Sincerely

General Sir Bertram Sebastian Chit Chat

Glad to meet you Sir Bertram Sebastian Chit Chat.

I hope you will keep close to the belly dancers so you will not freeze there in the snowy Sweden and I hope to meet you when you are back in Belgium one day.

(Are you piglet friendly btw?)

Not sheep or nun friendly by the sounds of it, no mention of piglets yet

It's very nice to meet such a well-rounded person on this forum.

You seem to have had many and adventure and I am sure if there are some rainy days and you are stuck somewhere, you could sneak onto a computer and tell us all a little more about your life.

I hope you enjoy your travels, your visits here to the forum and I am very pleased you joined us.
