Trying to emphasis how good it is at KAF, how the vast majority have good conditions and that their little johnny will come home with all bits attached - nothing to do with recruiting pinch point trades either of course!
It was bad! As an ex-RAF Bombhead it made me embarresed to watch this car crash TV! (I turned over & watched Masterchef)All inter-service slagging aside,I was embarresed for my service in the RAF to see it reduced to what was basically reality TV/soap opera at it's worst!
The Army/RM have the harder front line job compared to us but we all have a contribution to play,myself in my day was bombing up the jets to send the enemy to hell!
FFS a stint down MPA looks harder!!!
But I think C5 like producing this crap! (re-Axemen/Oilmen ect)
I just watched half an episode of this car crash (cheers spike) of a television programme.
I don't mind that somebody wants to make a documentary about Kandahar or Bastion (even if I can't quite understand it), but it's incredibly frustrating that civvies who watch this will assume that this is what life is like for all units who deploy.
On Telic a few years ago, a handful of lads managed to get themselves tasked with escorting someone to a hotel in Kuwait - and spent a couple of hours splashing around a swimming pool whilst there. The welfare officer got hold of some pictures, and stuck them in a newsletter to the families. Cue hundreds of wives and girlfriends hitting the roof because we're all "on holiday"!
