On the Border...



The Austrian Military Border- Sunday morning , mist sweeps across the heath outwith the military settlement...

Two battle hardened veterans converse as they mount guard on a typical Sunday morning. They talk of the price of pigs, target practice, the merits of Orthodoxy and rumours of a new officer being sent all the way from Vienna who is due to arrive tomorrow. A crack causes them to turn round only to see wood pigeons taking off and alighting once more...

Hope that musket is loaded and that they do a 360 scan quickly!
