    Being out of direct touch with military matters for many years, I merely looked for some sort of guidance as to its provenance - yours is succinct! Thanks.

    Reading the article in the Soldier, it was just subtly wrong, and caused me a great laugh.

    Does anyone remember the great "Decimalisation" scandal? They were going to decimalise all joint regimental names: 17/21 Lancers were going to be called the 0.8's, the 16/5 Hussars the 3.2's and so on. The lead-up was just as cleverly done as the depersonalisation one of this year, but quickly became evident that it was a wind-up - in classic squaddie fashion.

    I'm surprised that any squaddie fell for it, to be honest.

    Mind you... considering some of the bollox that has (or has not!) been coming out of the big house over the past few years, nothing surprises me much these days!
     
  13. Yep, see it on a daily basis. Soldier Mag has as much value as The Bulletin.

    Thanks for your input, guys of all genders - such matters would appear to be safe in military hands if left to their own devices. Wot a larf the DM is .....!
