Knew a few of the PJI's at Brize well....  ha ha ha.... tell your mate i'll buy him a beer.  lol
Crazy world...One of em though, knew Lewis Collins ( he was seeing his sister ) who turned up while I was at his house one day, he'd been visiting PTS for some reason and was a cracking fella.

I was like, wtf.

 

Small world! Saw one of the PJ’s on my jumps course couple of weeks back-works as a civi in a training establishment gym I nipped into get a PFA done through.

10 years service in 2 PWRR (infantry regiment + hence the name on here) and still going.

 

Funniest moment was in Iraq the other year. Working in a tented camp when ISIS were still growing, we had British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS) and watched the pigs against Swindon in the play offs. There was a blunt working with the RAF from Kiveton on the same camp and loved rubbing it in his face as Swindon scored goal after goal.

 

Ran into a few fellow Owls in many places and also seen pro Owls and anti blunt graffiti in places as random as the Falkland Islands and Cyprus; always raises a big smile when I see it. There are definitely more Owls than blunts serving, although that just reflects the relative fan base sizes imho.

Worked on a couple of Army bases here in Cyprus and must admit I was disheartened by the way our lads were treated.

I had many an argument with the management, and I would fight the corner on behalf of the soldiers which led to me being hounded out of a job.

Was in the Army for 3 years out in BAOR during late 80’s

 

before the days of t’internet we lived for world service - with all the lads from different towns was great rivalry at the time

 

also getting to games when home on leave was easy with POTG

No love for armed 'services' and not afraid to say so. You're the people who make war possible. End.

my lad was a squaddie , he has been suffering from ptsd for 14 years after enlisting (and s--t on from every angle via the mod refusing his pension)   looking to save people like you from harm the soldiers sailors and airman and all ancillary units attached to them do a fantastic job ,but carry on slagging them off and when the time comes that your little bubble bursts and you find you need the men and women of the forces to protect you I bet your statement above is forgotten very quickly  , they gave you the freedom to make your post  and still do.  END!

Start my final week in uniform next week. I joined in 1976 and have served 32 years regular and nearly ten years full time Reserve service. Never had a proper job and now I never will as I'm going to become a golf pro.  if I win every competition I enter I've worked out I could make twenty seven quid a week. Not sure what our lass is going to do for shoes from here on in, but looking forward to being able to go to,Tuesday night games.

This thread which I intended to be about the heroic servicemen within our fanbase has already been lost to the housing market, buy to let market and price of home rentals

Only because that was your line of interrogation lol
