    Is it time to pack up and go home when you mention "Active Edge" and only the retired officers have a clue what you are on about?

    That's better. For a moment I thought you might have mentioned Active Edge and carrying an SA80?

  12. Or even better "rapid exit"... Just what you want to hear when you're outside 3l of warsteiner...
  13. You mean your Regt didn't close the Sqn bars, confine you to camp and insist we stay sober on pain of death, or at least day-on/Day-off guards until you retired?

    Blimey, I wish we had it as good as you. In my day . . . . <mumble mumble> :sleepy:
  14. Nope coz it was supposed to be a surprise
