St George and the Dragons #1876

Through accidents of birth and abduction, resulting in forced emigration at an early age, I have 2 passports.

The UK side of the family dates back to the 1600s, so you’ll perhaps humour me and allow me to post an appropriate photo to celebrate the day.

The volunteer fire brigade station (in very NQM St Georgen, Bavaria) and Ms jb and Ms Myfriendtheprofessor, both silly enough to pose (unknowingly) as a rant of dragons for the occasion…

    I like this interpretation of the theme! I prefer your dragons to the beasts of old!

  2. I like the theory that the fire station is perhaps the dragon slayer of today!

  3. I suppose a fire breathing dragon being slain is a good mural for a fire station!

  4. I agree with Kate. Hi, Ms. JB!

  5. I agree with Kate, I suppose St. George didn’t realize he’d be competing for attention all these years later (and in so many spots worldwide!)

  6. Love the photo you have posted.

  7. St. George’s image is not half as attractive as the one of the two women beneath it. St. George really got around; there are several Greek Orthodox churches in St. Paul named for him.
