Hello all, Got the sad, but inevitable news the other day from the ACIO. My application failed at the RG8 stage - This is really a post to thank all those, who have replied to my questions over the past 8 weeks or so. In particular, i would like to express thanks to 'the iron', as it was he that answered most. I would also like to thank 'erus' and 'mysteron' for their often critical, but useful advice in general. I wish all users of this site the very best for the future - my thoughts will continue to remain with those serving, and their family and friends.
