They also insisted on walking around in a top end Australian summer in full woollen military gear!

There's a Churchill book where he goes out to Egypt and sees at a distance troops frolicking on the beach and going into the sea.

He turns to his companion and says "how thoughtful of the army to have given them all white trunks to preserve their dignity".

He then mentions that the colonials had previously all been terrified of the sun - wearing pith helmets and puttees and back-pads (eh? wuzzat?).

Whereas modern man wasn't a bit afraid and didn't seem to suffer any ill effects. (We now know that's not entirely true!).

Ever considered that all this can be done at the same time or is your mind too limited to realise that not everyone has the same needs at the same time.

And where do you get your maid and your gardener, house painter etc.?
