There’s Always Bloody Something

I was asked recently about the tagline to Bouncing Hedgehog – “There’s Always bloody Something.”

“There’s Always Bloody Something” is a memory from my childhood. My father had been in the Royal Air Force or RAF as a navigator with IX Bomber Squadron. When he left the squadron he was given a pewter tankard which bore the official squadron crest which was a bat. For those who are interested the bat actually existed at the time and hung around in the control tower if I remember correctly. He was a Malayan fruit bat that went by the name of “Tom Dooley.” I saw him years later at London Zoo. Anyway, I digress. The tankard. Rather than the squadron’s official motto “We Fly By Night” his fellow officers had the unofficial motto inscribed instead. In other words… “There’s Always Bloody Something.

And how right they were/are!
