No, he's going to wait another 9 days then ask "I'm going to Pirbright tomorrow. What do I need to take with me?" ;)

You want to work through Christmas? Well you can have my duty then you freak. Enjoy stagging on in the snow and eating stale bread, ham and custard creams.

i everyone i just have 10 days left before starting my basic training on 10 sept anyone else going to pirbright on that day.
Fantastic! Keep low, move fast and don't ask the instructor any stupid question's.

Come back to this forum when you complete basic and let us know how you got on. I have been told basic is like the scouts now and there is very little shouting but I am sure it will be a shock to the system still.

Prepare to double!!! Double march you fu*king crow bag!!!

Well, I would understand the situation of people who are IN the Army are going through, of course THEY want to go home. But i've been home for 13 years now, doing school and collage with never being on a long period of time from home, with no job because i'm waiting for replies from the Army to know when I can leave, and that Sir, is why I dont care if I work through Christmas.

Christmas is different for the Soldier's who get the rare visit home which I understand, and once in the army signing up for 4+ years... it is a valuable leave time to those of you working overseas or wherever now.

And that is my Elaboration, now rather than throw an insult at me, why coulden't you answer my question?

P.S. Sorry for having to talk in this manner, but I don't like to be called a Freak, and I don't think anyone else likes to be called it either.

Whatever you fruitcake. I take it your only 13 years old? Go play with your action man. If you can't hack a few strong comments on here god help you when the instructors start.

No i'm 18, I'm not a rude person, and I will be keeping my head down in the Army. However this is a Freindly forum discussion, and you insult me for just asking a question.

And I'm sorry to say, but you are losing this conversation for throwing more insults at me.

They are not insults just the sort of humour and attitude you will find behind the gates of the Army.

To answer your question: If you get to basic training before Christmas stand down it is likely that the MGS (Military guard Service) will do the stagging on as they won't trust you with a baton let alone a rifle and if you make it to phase two you will do so much stagging on you will never want to do another duty in your career.

Do you have a motorcycle license? Doe's anyone want a weeks leave?

Learn fast my boy, never volunteer for anything but do as you are told.

My nephew joins the same place on the same day. Good luck!
Ignore all the crappy posts, that's just idiots who wish they were joining again and are just too old and probably wouldnt make the grade in any case!

I make the grade everyday. I applaud anyone who joins but you have to expect that it is not the boy scouts and that the Army has a particular type of humour.

When your nephew passes out and joins his unit you will see that difference for yourself.

Hey fella, Were you really a Para or do you just dream of it or maybe you've just read about it in books eh?
I am a member of SAMA82 and also a Gulfwar Vet and I've been at the sharp end.
Have a bit of respect brother and watch your mouth.
(By the way hope this has met your punctuation standards maybe you were a shiny arse?)

?????

Have I just been in a parallel world, or did Madtom just have another post similar to the one above? And where has it gone?
 
#19
Yes you are right, I did add another post as I thought the first one hadn't gone through. The content was basically the same with the exception that I added that these people should have more respect for our members and support our younger members who pretty soon may be in Afghanistan or Iraq. At the moment they will not understand banter.
I still await a reply from my new 'friends' the Para and Nightstalker on this subject .
Skitch, good luck with your training as a vm hope you meet my nephew as he is a good lad and all of his male relatives are ex forces he knows all about banter and respect
