a couple of books I enjoyed some years ago were: Chickenhawk and The Devils Guard.

They're a good read if you can get hold of them.

Cheers

Discharged Shore

Stix, my definition came from a recruitment officer .

However, it is worth highlighting that there are other uses for the term.

I tend to do a fair bit of weight training, but light weights and lots of repetitions. This is to help to build up endurance as well as strength.

It would be good to incorporate a weights based training session ontop of your circuit training. Or do your circuit training with weights too.

I remember an oppo of mine who trapped a jenny at HMS Warrior. He acquired a single grot and let her inside. Meanwhile he headed back to his own grot to get some more ale. On the way he walked into a couple of the lads whom he shared some whiskey with. The extra alcohol topped him up and he literall...

'Hi Steve,' she smiled. :D My eyes lit up when I saw her. She knew me, but I was thinking, who the ferk is this l...

Dwarfy: Nice one mate. Although I like Green Day, especially Bullet in the Bible, I'm a true Linkin Park fan. They really do create the sound to train to.

New Green day Album

I personally am a strong Linkin Park and Green Day fan. I find their music great to train to and get a lot of inspiration from it. They give me more drive and determination and allow me to reach higher limits through the physical pain barrier. I've just bought the new Green day album and believe the...

Great Runs Ashore

I remember the first time I went ashore down Union Street. We were visiting from Pompey, whilst staying at whale Island (HMS Excellent) preparing to do a Royal Guard for the Queen in Poole. The first thing I recall was seeing a bootneck dressed up as a woman with a bowl of fruit on his head and then...

I went to the Supermarket today and bought some goods. I gave the checkout operator a 20 pound note. She held it up and checked for the silver line in it. She gave me my change, a 10 pound note, a five pound note and a few coppers. I took them from her and held them up, checked the silver lines in t...
