Hey Dux...love your picture/avatar man! Where'd you get it? Did you photoshop the guy from young frankenstein over a pilot's picture or is that a shot from a movie I've never heard of?

"the guy" is none other than the great Marty Feldman (may he rest in peace).
Doesn't look like a photoshop - most likely a pic from one of his films.

yes - just google the name - you'll find the pic...and a few other similar ones.

Thank you gents...never seen him in anything other than "Young Frankenstein", although I do imagine he is (or was, sorry)indeed "great" based on how many times he had me rolling on the floor laughing during that movie.

It is indeed - "Over the hills and far away" was the marching tune of the 95th rifles. The tune has a long history though - in various versions - dating back to the 15th century.
