    The world can sleep peacefully...

    You were all safe in your beds in the Seventies... I had your backs covered...







    Look at that last piccy, ex-forces will recognise the '37 pattern webbing. Nothing but the best for our lads eh?


    Jeez!, compare that first piccy with the avatar, where did the time go?

    There isn't a bayonet on it V. That is an SLR (Self-Loading Rifle), they're quite long compared to them new-fangled SA80 rifles they have nowadays.

    My bed is outside because I was in Deepcut barracks in Surrey playing badminton for the Regiment. I was in the Royal Engineers and we are known as "Sappers", not "Privates". Those numbnut Logistic Corps eejits thought it meant "Sergeant", so when they found out I wasn't this is what they did. Remember we're all nuts in the army...

    Yeah, do you remember all that "suicide" crap? Not just Deepcut either, though I was back in civvy street by then.

    You'll always get it Vince. The forces are the most competitive organisations in the world, from Corps right down through Regiments/Battalions to a 4 man troop section. The army is built that way, it's all about beating every other section/troop/squadron/Regiment and there are inter unit competitions with Silverware as the prize to the best ones. Every CO wanted the silverware in his HQ Trophy cabinet. It's not a bad thing, it brings the fittest and best to the top as it's intended to. It gets a little ugly when some fat kid holds up a troop as they try to shove his arse over a 12 foot wall and they come in last...

    Not much fat on me in the army, I weighed 8 and a half stone from when I joined at 16 'til I was 45. I then gave up smoking and put on a stone!
