That is why I think they picked the wrong place and audience. If they had targeted those who make the decisions rather than those those deal with the consequences then I think their views would have been seen in a much better light. When I say I think they want a peaceful march I don't really think ...

I think you missed my point entirely. There march is not to prove that soldiers are doing wrong, it is to bring attention to the innocent victims of this war, who are not even fighting. The way they are trying to do that is, and quite rightfully, seen as an attempt to undermine the heroic actions of...

I in no way condone their actions, however.. saying go back to their own country when they are the British born Muslims doing it.. They do seem to miss the point though. Soldiers are paid to do a job, and they do it well. They are not paid to choose where and who they do their job to. This march sho...

Would you think that if you was in their shoes? Probably not. You will all be in there for the same reason, to be a para. Yeah they will probably treat you like s*** but you just got to prove that your better than them, better than the best and there to prove it.

What MSI means is go away and check out army peacekeeping projects around the globe. That will answer your question about what you do when your not on tour, Afghanistan is not the only thing the army does. If you do get sent on tour to Afghanistan exchanging bullets is not something you should be lo...

Relax! If you got them all correct and you didn't think you was overly slow then your bound to get a decent score. You do maths and English basic tests that are rather easy.

Yes that is your chosen career, and it is what you will spend the majority of your career doing. But every soldier is a fighting soldier first and their role second. Even chefs have to fight if needed.

Rikkles have you just moved house then? I did and the changing of the docs has made my medical drag on for ages. AFCo was communicating with my old docs, then rather than my old docs saying to AFCO to use my new one they sent all forms to the NHS handling center and then on to my new docs so forms a...

Imagine carrying a weighted pack in the desert, with sand being rubbed into your shoulders by the straps in a high heat. It will quickly become infected and sore reducing your ability to carry weight. So what might seem like a simple thing can have implications when you look at it from other angles.
