They never did like us in Windsor much anyway, apart from when we evacuated and sandbagged their houses during the floods. They kind of tolerated us for a few months after that.woodyb said:unemployable said:
Fraid not mate-I can remember being stopped in the street many moons ago when I was going home from Cadets by some to55er who said 'just wait til we get you in Northern Ireland'. Charmer, especially when you're 16 lol.
More up to date, have been getting told by lads still serving of gangs of asians spitting on blokes in green kit out shopping in places like Windsor. Makes me fizz.

I dont know how he kept his hands in his pockets.
I was in same place about a week earlier when I heard " Hey soldier", I tried to ignore it but he kept on. When I turned around ready for confrontation I was met by a Camden wino who wanted to shake my hand and give me a swig of his Tennants Super!
I know Camden is probably not the best place to go out in uniform but hey fuck it.
Special Branch are investigating the above incident by the way.
