Hang about - first MDN changes name on becoming a vicar, then becomes Sausage Beard, now back as MDN Classic. Has he been defrocked, possibly having been exposed as Bishop Walt by Jom Shortt-Knob ?


Oh - not bothered about his Northern Monkey days.

Royal Army Air Corps, RAAC,
Can't have that one, John. The RAAC is the Royal Australian Armoured Corps.

If we get a "Royal" title, I think we should go right back to our roots and become the Royal Flying Corps.

We already have Royal Warrant (got it back in '77 I believe). The name RAAC was discounted due to the similarity to lumpy jumpers of the time and the suggestion of reverting to RFC made several RAF senior bods have a coronary so it was kept as AAC.

As for the beret colour change? Utter bollox.

Does that mean that the AAC holds all the RFC VC's or did the Brylcream take them?

I think the last time I actually wore a beret was around about the last time you passed a BFT. :roll:
