20 Armd Brigade? Any good?

#2
Got a mate at 20 and to be honest he says it's pump but that's just one persons view. 7 armd is a good posting if you don't mind being in the sticks.

Bull 140.....I like your style. Did anyone hear of the SSM 1 squadron at ATR Bassingbourne in 1998 who wrote a 40 page dossier on his military stance on invading france? I heard that It was a complete strategic breakdown of the situation. It must have done hime some good because I saw him 2 years later as a WO1 and he told his regiment that the rumour was true and he posted it to the Home Office! Now that is what I call a massive pair of swingers. Anyone else hear the same as what I heard.
Infact, does anyone even like french people full stop!!!!



Im not prejudice......i hate everyone!!!!

You'rea sick sick man. The food is vile, the wine is full of antifreeze and ok it may be cheap but is it really worth giving them any sort of positive over, and the women, once they learn to shave they might be ok.

Would that be the Asda "Chavernet Sauvignon" £1.49 for a 5ltr box? The French still produce some of the best wine in the world, and their cuisine is second to none. Granted, if your taste runs to chicken nuggets then you're better of in Peckham than Paris. :wink:

Their cuisine is second to half of europe nowadays. It's not the 1980's anymore, get your ass out of the bistro and out for some world cuisine. Their wine is okbut it's stillthe same pish they were prducing years ago. There is much nicer stuff coming from the new world. The only plus about it is getting on a ferry over to calais and buying it for cheap.

I havent really bought into the whole "New World" thing, I've tried plenty, but I'm not overly impressed. Besides, where is the sense in shipping a product 10.000 miles around the world, when its available 100 miles away. :?
As for it being the same stuff as they were producing years ago, well yes, it would be, as grapes havent changed that much for a long time. :? I'm not sure I fancy Kiwi-fruit chablis. I'm sure the Scots dont feel the need to change the way they make Scotch, or the Portugese their Port.
At least when the French say "Oak Aged" it means that its sat in an oak barrel, and will have some tannin in it. Ocker "Oak Aged" often means, sat in a million gallon stainless steel tank with a couple of pillow sized "tea-bags" full of oak chippings. 8O
Anyway, having said all that in defence of the French wine industry, "This year, I have been mostly drinking Rioja" and very nice it is too. :oops: :D
