It's easier to mop up the piss from the floor than dry the mattress!:Sword:

I might drive back up just to see those photos and letters. The Holocaust Museum would give their right arms for a gander and copies. They would be up on the wall so fast. They are always searching for unpublished first account evidence to shove down the Denier Liars throats.....

No Gil ....Coventry would have been a doddle for me. I only lived 14 miles as the crow flies from Bill S 's pad.

Bill M's is a tad farther:smug:

This was me favourite haunt in Coventry. Macbeth and what not. Hubble bubble toil and trouble.

That's the only way to eat toast, anything else is just warm bread.

There were several Brits on Longdon,and in Stanley,in '82.I remember a ginger haired cockney one,whose parents had taken him home when they returned to Argentina after 40 yrs in London.We were given a bollocking by the platoon commander for fraternizing,when he came in to find us feeding him beer in the kitchen when he was on a work detail.We had to point out to the wanker that he was probably more English than us,and was no longer an enemy!:rolleyes:

I would have been down that Mountain and AWOL to you blokes as soon as it got dark. With that accent he could have got away with it. Talk about torn between two worlds.

Blame the junta, poor bugger was probably conscripted into a service he didn't want !

There were loads in the Turkish Army in Cyprus as well.They had all been conscripted the same way as the Argentines,to get citizenship after parents returning.They were mostly posted to,I think it was called Famou Gate,or something like it,a main crossing point,as translators.

Help me out chaps, what exactly does the Turkish Army in Cyprus, the blame on the Junta or the original ethnicity of Argie troops on the Falkland Islands have to do with “Driving 1000 miles for breakfast?”

The breakfast was huevos rancheros, so it's a natural progression Kevin.

Pat - that has a similar sounding explanation to one I receive from a crow (soon to be ex-crow) in depot, it went something like “honestly corporal, I did not pull the trigger, it just went off.......”

Honest Injun,that's what happened Corporal Kev!If I was supremely clever like Don I'd've moved it to the right thread,but I is too stoopid to do fings like that! I don't think anyone else realised till you pointed it out,(or they were just being sympathetic towards my senility,and computer choddery!):stupid:

A very racist remark,which a millenial snowflake would take professional offence to,but I just accept it as constructive criticism.I have enough difficulty just getting on here,and posting the odd picture,which usually takes about 6 attempts and 3 hours,no matter how many times I do it.Don has tried instructing me in computery matters several times,but it just won't stay in there,so I have come to accept I'll never be the Stephen Hawking of this site,and am happier for it!:stupid:

Every Depot Platoon had one. 320 had Pvt Bird from Bradford....never forget him. On the SMG Range he had his working parts jammed halfway. Full mag.... finger on the trigger and held at the level and turning round and round in circles bleating

"Corporal ....'ere Corpral....Meeeee goon's stopped'. Round and round and round.:eek-new: Everybody hit the deck grovelling.. . 2Para Smokey Lloyd ran around in a half circle and leapt on his back. One hand on his shoulder and the other over his head (he was 6 ft 2in) and grabbed the barrel yanking it skyward. ...................................GONER....that day. Two of them from Bradford. His mate jacked days later and was posted to a County Reg.
