    Everybody wonderin’? Do not be dismayed! Only about a mile-and-a-half to go!!!

    The answer is very hard, but not very difficult, especially not so for fans of things hard, including music.

    No turning back now. So near yet so far.

    For many, the mere mention of the band that famously recorded this song is torture.

            btw, Lollie – making it an even cooler tribute to Errol – The Trooper was released on June 20, 1983 – his 74th birthday!

              Nice! I wonder if they knew or if it was just by chance?

              I wish he had lived to at least 74.

        Hi Lollie;
        Wow! You are really great! I never heard of “The Troopers” and that is the greatest Video commemorating Errol’s’ Charge of the Light Brigade. Wonderful!

    That was a very good riddle Tim!
    What are the pictures symbolizing?
    But Errol is VERY handsome not just quite!

      Thank you, Tina. Isn’t that a terrific video!!!

      You were quite right to correct me about my evaluation of Errol’s handsomeness. … And now, it turn, I must enhance your assessment. Errol is extraordinarily handsome in this film, not just VERY! (I’m sure you’ll agree, as would all the free world with an IQ above 40.)

      With respect to the clues, I “quoted” several words and phrases from Tennyson’s “The Charge of the Light Brigade” and Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper”, with “one-and-a-half miles” equating to “half a league”.

      Regarding the significance and symbolism of the images, I first included the Right, Honourable Alfred Lord Tennyson, before he was officially Right, Honourable, or Lordly. Next, I posted a photo of Balaklava, where the infamous Battle of Balaclava/Charge of the Light Brigade took place during the Crimean War – and where British troops were first outfitted with specially knitted head coverings to protect them from the severe cold. This head gear thus became known in the West as balaclavas. Helping us along, Beyoncé is pointing (to the left) to her own custom designed balaclava, which used on her recent European tour, I believe. (Thank you, Beyoncé.)

      Next we are shown a group of legendary torture devices, including an iron maiden. Finally, we have the band’s lead singer holding up the beer named “The Trooper” – which I must soon find and give a try in honour of our epically glourious hero!

    By the way, All, Errol really was a (real life) hero in connection to this film, taking action to stop the morally empty horses asses who so cruelly hurt and killed horses in Hollywood. Good for you, Errol!…

      That is the only thing I hate about any of Errol’s movies starring horses,it makes me sick seeing the poor things being tripped over and hurt.It was shameful that the movie makers ever allowed and did it.Disgusting.

      I am so proud of Errol for standing up for them and complaining to the ASPCA.YAY Errol! :D
