Ragnar wants to sign up. He knows the lady ferrets fancy a soldier.
Dreamer sent me this picture of a ferret who is the mascot of the Yorkshire Regiment in the British Army. There are two of them, named Quebec and Imphal (appropriately enough, both big dust off's in that regiment's history). I'm sure Ragnar wants to join because he knows the truth of the passage in Homer's Odysseus, which says " for the fairer sex is ever to a warrior kind."
The natty uniform doesn't hurt, either!
" A good uniform must work its way with the women, sooner or later" Charles Dickens, Pickwick Papers.
