Doesn't open Mike, I think you need to remove the box-brackets round the URL.

You have to put it between the "YouTube" brackets [Youtube]...LIKE THIS...[/Youtube] and also delete the "s" from the "https"

If the link is to one of your own videos, make sure you SIGN OUT, then find your video and use the available url. I've found it gives me a different link that doesn't work if I'm signed in.

Also helps if you do a rain dance wearing a pink tutu, and recite McAndrew's Hym in a Swaziland accent.... THEN it will work :roll:

After looking up the Hymn on the Kipling Society website, they have a page giving notes, and Bart had contributed previously (what an unusual lot we are! I noted one technical note that I thought had an improper answer/definition, which is common among the population that is not living in the late 1800s with steam in their blood. The technical note indicated the phrase (“There’ll be the loco-boiler next an’ thirty miles an hour”) was with respect to water tube boilers, which would not match the term "loco" boiler at all. MY thoughts below, comments please.


E-mail to the Kipling Society:
With respect to the explanations/notes on McAndrew's Hymn:


“There’ll be the loco-boiler next an’ thirty miles an hour”

An alternate that might be considered:

During the late 19th century, torpedo boats were all the rage among several navies of the world. These boats needed to be very fast, and to that end the highest performance boilers of those times were locomotive boilers. Torpedo boat speeds were far faster than all other types of boats and ships, with discussion in the literature of 30 miles an hour being a lofty goal. Locomotive boilers were used in early fast torpedo boats, and the boiler for these boats soon evolved into a type specific to torpedo boats, appropriately named a "Torpedo Boat Boiler", but that is another story.

How about it Bart? Is this boat cruder than mine?

I don't know about the boat being cruder, but the videoing certainly was!

I feel quite seasick and it was nothing to do with the water!
