New lad in the pub, told me he recently left your lot after 6 years. Basically:

Entire 6 years with 5 Regt, Catterick
Rank? PRIVATE!! Don't you mean Gunner I ask??
Deployed to Iraq and Afghan - I get the round in
Then tells me he is missing it, wants to re join. Why not?
Yeh, thinking of the Marines! You can't re join them mate. Why? He asks!! Because they are
******* navy.
Did you not think about 29 when you were in? Who are they he asked!!!

Now, is it very wrong of me to believe that all your lot will be aware of 7 and 29??

Not outraged btw, just think this **** is a ****, but could be wrong

Not wrong of you to believe that.

If he got to Phase 2 he'd have seen guys walking round in green and maroon lids while training.

Perhaps he was blind and deaf?

Was going to say, could be deaf cos he's a gunner, but then remembered that due to cuts they just shout bang during gun drills now.

Yeah but, if 5 was a Heavy Regt he would have shouted 'bang' really loud.
That's the other thing. Said he was field guns, but 5 Regt appears to be more hi-tech/ecm/radar etc.

(A) I'd have cut the conversation dead as soon as he identified himself as a 'private'.

(B) I would then have challenged him on any other statements he made until he turned crimson and exited stage left.

Aaaaaaand (C) I wouldn't have come onto the Internet looking for validation on a forum post that answers all it's own questions...

You fanny.................. :)

Absolute bollocks, they re-roled to STA in 1998.

Silly me, I thought the title was self explanatory and bomb proof from tinterweb comedians. Maybe an age thing, but the Army/Forces (Note not Military. ******* hate that term) have changed since 91, so was giving him rope and was simply asking those serving as drop shorts for their opinions.
 
#17
The consensus is that you should have smited him with your ring finger.
 
#18
5 regt is a ISTAR Regt.
you cannot move for cnuts trying to get you to join 7 or 29 so he would have known.

I'm a fireman, and my dog just puked on the floor.

Might have been me, but **** it, who cares. I've got me slippers on.

When I was a fireman, I also shouted a lot.

I was also WABC and an underwater knife fighter, and a cheese cutter.

So there, chew me.

Can I throw the Kindle at the dog's head?

CQMS, Thank you for my first surreal moment of the day.....
