Indeed, most excellent finery sir!

You appear to have had quite some luck in the warm climate of Spain, I look forward to a return visit there myself. But I have to say something, you know, about those pigeons...

Tapping a barrel we found floating near the shore, well aged I'd say by the looks of it, should be good. Have the first drink to celebrate!

Thank you chaps, much appreciated

I'll take that drink Lt Franz, it'll wash down your pigeon pie very nicely
