I'd love to but me missus would kill me :roll: Are you after writing to someone whose serving away? Whilst not inundated with these sort of letters, there's generally a few floating around each squadron/company in theatre, and anyone who wants to can write back to strike up a conversation. They are ...

The difference is Bootnecks do it for the attention and wind up trapping, Paras end up shiters, scrapping and going home on their tod (or with their oppo) :wink:

The sexual preferences of the airborne crowd has had wide coverage in the press, if they're not getting sex changes they're busy playing with each other :lol: Try the Bootneck section :wink:

I think intake for all Arms is on the increase at the moment, Lympstone's busier than it's been for years if what I've heard is even half-right.

I'm surprised no-one from Catterick has answered this yet. If it's anything like the Corps, washing for first few weeks is done by hand (take powder), and later you'll be allowed to use launderette facilities. Boots, if they're standard issue, I'd take them in your civvy clothes. After a couple of w...

Exactly. Obviously it's a failing on the applicants part that he hasn't checked if he is entitled; however, with the old system you'd never get authorisation in the first place if you weren't. Now, at my unit at least, to prevent these mistakes happening so much, you have to trawl round the same per...

We now seem to be in a worse state than before it came in; presumably to cut down on the number of fraudulent claims (which to my mind are mainly made because people don't understand the system or what they're entitled to - it's a common misconception (mainly because this was how it was originally b...

If you can do an overhand pull-up, you can get over anything you can reach the top of. Run, jump, grab, chin over top, swing leg, job's a good-un.

MSI64, if your last comment was aimed at me, I didn't really follow; either way, my last line was tongue in cheek, no offence intended :wink: EDIT - ignore that, it makes sense now I've read it sober, wasn't for me at all :oops: Hands on, it's always amused me that it seems to be the case that the p...

Mind you, that you are a serving Royal Marine doesn't, I think, add much to your valid argument. Sisyphus, another valid point :wink: Daniel, I'm afraid most of that is above my level of knowledge to answer; I simply threw up my immediate thoughts given what little I know of capabilities during WW2...
