    Re: Newbie

    Good to see some new blood on here Matt. Obviously it was much tougher in our day. Last week of P Company we had to run naked up Mt Everest carrying a small car. Plus, several jumps were done carrying a beach umbrella instead of a parachute. I understand things have gotten a bit easier now but we certainly wont hold that against you. PS. if a bloke called Peter Dearden asks you to send him alcohol and wants to discuss The Boer War, ignore him he's very old.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.

    That is ageist if ever I heard it - you should just say Hi to the little fukka and see what childish rant he splutters up..... And Pat ain't so young - he just never grew up beyond 6
    I just don't understand why they won't shut the hell up while I practice my people skills....

    Steve was in Colly too Matt.

    Glad we've got a Medic though, could be a lot of bloodshed in the Poetry thread,

    might be a nice thing to say but it's no factually correct. I am the youngest on here, being 24. I just look a bit older cause I worry about the state world a lot.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.

    You will have seen that there is a load of nutters on this site although some guys are o.k. Myself being one of the older and more sensible types if you have any problems you can get many of them solved on here so take no notice of the headbangers of course you may be a headbanger too unless of course you are 2para.

    And so now the newbie can see how sensible and compassionate we can be - very well said that man - the rest can go play with themselves (compassionately of course!)

    As you av probably already observed Matt, there is a wide selection of mental health issues on ere, but I certainly don,t include myself among,st my poor afflicted comrades.
    Then again, 1 Para always were a cut above the rest o the Brigade so obviously that is why I have remained mentally undamaged from my experiences while,st serving, even though my missis would beg to differ, but who takes any notice of them anyway?
    OOOPPS!! I berra fukk off! She,s just shouted and wants to know wot I,m fukkin about at and where,s her lunch. "Coming Dear!"
