Home of the Lions. Recently the British and Ireland Lions Rugby Union team gave the Australian Wallabies a hiding. Their jolly supporters were seen all over Sydney, especially in this pub on Goulburn St. Well done to them. Currently also walloping us in cricket - The Ashes. Also won the Tour de France. Won Wimbledon... have I left anything out? Yep won a swag of medals at the Olympics.
The Bell UH-1 Iroquois (unofficially Huey) is a military helicopter powered by a single, turboshaft engine, with a two-bladed main rotor and tail rotor.
Approximately 7,000 UH-1 aircraft saw service in Vietnam. The Australian Army used these as well in Vietnam.
'Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War began as a small commitment of 30 men in 1962, and increased over the following decade to a peak of 7,672 Australians deployed in South Vietnam or in support of Australian forces there. The Vietnam War was the longest and most controversial war Australia has ever fought. Approximately 60,000 Australians served in the war; 521 were killed and more than 3,000 were wounded.' Wiki
Jim was down at Central after being outside the supreme court all day. He thinks it is all a facade!
Figurative meaning: Facade
The word can be used as a figure of speech to describe the "face" that people show other people, as opposed to what they really think or do.
