    Sir Egbert, knight of the realm, was hurrying home on a cold, dark, wet night when suddenly, his horse stumbled and died on the spot. All Sir Egbert could do was collect what belongings he could and tramp onward.

    After staggering for a spell, he decided he must get new transport. He headed for the nearest house which, as luck would have it, was a small farm. He banged on the door and shouted’ A horse! A horse! I must have a horse!".

    The door opened to reveal a young girl. She looked at Sir Egbert and said, “Your pardon, good knight but my father and brothers are on the other side of the forest and will not be back before tomorrow. They are riding all our horses.”

    Sir Egbert, saddened by this, answered “But I must return home immediately. Have you any idea where I may acquire alternative transportation?”.

    The young girl said “I know of no other horses hereabouts, but sometimes my brothers ride our Great Dane when the need arises. Would that help?”

    Sir Egbert, desperate, said “If I must, I must. Show me the animal”. The young girl led the way to a stable. She disappeared inside and returned leading an enormous dog which was more than an adequate size for riding.

    Unfortunately, the dog had seen better days. Its coat was mangy, its legs were spindly and it was gasping for breath from even such a short walk.

    Sir Egbert looked at the young girl and said , “Surely you wouldn’t send a knight out on a dog like this?”

    As going into battle, if Rodney has a warm feeling it’s only beacause he’s wet his pants…or codpiece, or braies, or chainie whities or whatever.

    Sorry Alexikakos, I don’t read anything longer than three or four lines long

    According to one source I’ve read, knights often couldn’t be bothered to change out of their armour for bathroom breaks.
    Funny… there was no mention of that in Prince Valiant or Ivanhoe…

    Even modern snipers on long stalks have to let nature take its course without affecting the course of the approach or exfil.

    If I recall, Dr Von Braun told Alan Shepard to do it in the suit. After relieving himself, Shepard remarked, “I’m a wet back now!”
