Re: Visit Afghanistan-One day

As a Taliban spokesman said, "you've got the clocks. We've got the time". Well be out of there before long, leaving behind too many good people. For what?

Western Democracy doesn't fit all cultures.

Re: James Savile and the"Seven"

A really difficult topic. We all remember stories of WWII when prisoners were 'executed' (shot) by the Waffen SS/Wehrmacht. In this case we don't know the details. It will all come out in the wash but we can't have one rule for the SS and another for us.

Re: Israel's Persecution Of Christians

Sorry, but the link has no relevance to what you're saying. (I'm not sure what it's about?) But it's certainly true that Christians in Palestine are rapidly declining. The Grand Mufti from Saudi Arabia has just said all Christian churches in the Arabian peninsular should be destroyed. Can you imagin...

Re: Military families wanted for Channel 4 programme

Thanks for your reply - I can assure you that this isn't the angle at all. But you are asking for military personnel to say whether smacking is acceptable or not. It doesn't take a genius to see where this might lead. If you are interested in the view of military parents it would be better to ask h...

Re: Serious warning about the Freemasons

In Freemasonry guys are Entered Apprentices, Fellowcraft or Master Masons. Fair enough. But why would anyone want to join an organisation where they couldn't aspire to another 30 degrees above them? Any Booty could become CGRM (if he had what it takes). No normal Master Mason would ever get to 33rd ...

Re: assignment in afghanistan

The usual deployment [how long a unit goes there for] is 6 months if this is what you are asking.

Bienvenue, Madamemoiselle.

Vous ne parlez pas bien Anglais. Quelle est votre question? Nous ne comprenons pas en ce moment.

Tab,

I get these 3 or 4 times a week. You're lucky you've only just been pinged. On the other hand I could be a billionaire who never cashed in. NOT!!

Re: 4 Para WW2 Diary

Fantastic info, but what's the point of it other than to let others know of these actions? If you want to air it you must be expecting some reaction or support?

Re: help from Catterick personnel please!

This is a bit of a puzzle. If your grandson is with his parents or step-parent who is in the mob, then you need to work through the MOD. If you're confident that the longer it goes on the worse it will get for them, what is the problem you are asking us to comment on? When it comes to Court you won'...

Re: SAS

As a RM (and anyone from any branch of the services) you can now apply for any branch of SF, SAS,SBS or the SRR. Lots of guys from the Corps never fancied SBS and to that end we lost quite a few to the SAS by way of PVR. timex, Any explanation for this? Why not fancy the SBS but SAS? Does it work t...
