Re: Return of the 'Old and Bold'

Hi Rover, Not the young guys you were hoping for but nice to hear from you anyway!! I am, as you well know, of the Old and Bold variety. I haven't been on this site for a long time but I now feel inclined to look in more often, especially after that ludicrous photograph of the "Walt" at the site of ...

Re: Cockleshell Heroes

It was nice to meet with Daniel. We had a very interesting discussion about many topics, including the raid itself and which suprisingly veered into Freemasonry. It seems that Bordeaux is very strongly "run" by French Freemasonry and Daniel does consider it not to good. If I remember rightly, French...

Hi Daniel, I will be over for this years commemoration of the Frankton Op. about the 12th. of December. If you see some "old farts" in Green Berets outside Hangar 14 - please come over and say hello. There will be about 6 of us but it would be nice to meet you. I might even persuade "Rover" to atten...

Op. Frankton

Hi All, I have just read the three pages of this thread and I am intrigued about the mysteries surrounding it. It was a raid to instil confidence in the British to show that we could raid the Enemy Coast. It had no real strategic value. Yes, they showed that we could sink enemy shipping - but not a ...

Rotary Booty

I spoke to Steph on Sunday. She is bearing up remarkably well. The wake is at the Hamworthy Social Club on Queen Annes Drive, Merley, near Wimborne. It will obviously be after the Church Service and the crematoriam. I wil miss Derek. Like Dave D. I met Derek through Military Forums and then found th...

Sorry, but I think this SAS/SBS thing about secrecy is a load of bollocks.

Yes you are a part of the Special Forces. I do not see why you should remain anonymous!

I was one of those - but I never had ny face blacked out!! In fact Iwas used as a recruiting poster!!

Hi Schmoo, I did two years on exchange with the American Forces. Loved every minute. There were, of course problems because the Americans have a different mindset - but it didn't stop us working together. I love the American way of life. My two years, totally changed my way of thinking about America...

Hello you guys who regularily read this Forum. I think it is dying. Beast is doing a sterling job in trying to keep it going but he is inundated by Walters and Wannabees. Can I call on all members who are lying low, but still logging on to see the latest bit of crap to come out of the ether and star...

What kind of a unit did you spend 2 years with, a basic training company?
Actually, it was with Seal Team Two.

They were great guys - but hidebound by militarily constrtictions

This thread is a load of bollocks. It was nothing about racism or Muslimaophobia - but about a serving serviceman being refused a room in a hotel because he was a serviceman!! Calm down you lot - especially Jayne and Steve, who I love dearly. Also GHMT and the other guy, who I can't be bothered to l...

Excuse me - but don't Army Air Corps ground crew service helicopters? I didn't realise that they were required to actually fire rifles!! They don't actually have regiments! Just the Army Air Corps. There is no chance of serving with the SAS or any other regiment except as a supporting ground crew fo...
