  2. I am glad that there's a healthy degree of challenge and scepticism in the Regular Army.
    There's a damn sight more in the TA!

    Credit where credit's due DOT - I was one of the sceptics when your forum was first mooted.

    As for the Herr General, when he was challenged with the view of the Arrse collective, I sensed he was sorely tempted to expatiate on the subject of Arrse and its membership.
