    We are currently advertising for a place within our company and have just recieved amongst all the dross cv's one from a chap claiming he was an Intelligence Officer in the Aussie SAS.

    Got his name etc. Need to check him out, if he's a walt he's in for a BIG TIME shock. The MD has got memorabilia all over her office. Some of it mine and some of it our Lad's who is currently out on his second Op Herric.

    Any hints would be usefull and questions to ask him to put him on the spot. Do they have a boat house? Knowing you lot its probably a Regt Bar.

    Anyhow would love to have some info so that I can ask pertinent Questions. :twisted:

    Currently Pissing Myself Laughing. Just found out where the Barracks are.
    My Dads brother did do a strecth with the Regiment got medically discharged with a fractured spine. And he settled in Swanbourne afterwards.

    Think I'll pick up the phone to him this weekend and see if he has stayed in touch with the Regt. Can't guarnatee it cause hes a moody bastard like all the blokes in my family :) but you never know he may have retained some esprit de corps.
  6. AB - PM me I've got a mate in the Aussie Army and know another fellah who joined them too.
  7. PM me with his details and I'll check him out on the system for you.

  8. PM me for a recently-retired Warrant Officer's perspective 8)
