No problems there, I drive a 44 tonner for a living, a quick cabby with me and you'll be set.Do we need any HGV Drivers? There's a bit of a shortage at the moment. Causing a bit of a caffuffle with shops running short on scoff and stuff. Petrol pumps running dry. Think I'm going to have to dust off my old HGV Ticket and cash in.
Trouble is I've not driven a 4 Tonner since Lionheart and Crusader
Bit like driving an over sized car pulling a large caravan now day. It’s not truck driving anymore!Ha, no mate, we don't even have clutches anymore.
And work tickets have been replaced by electronic tacho cards, so those of us who have trouble remembering what day it is have no need to worry.
That’s life in the XIVth Legion for you!The army was not that much different. As I said in barracks ranks messed by rank in their own time. When out playing soldiers, living in a hole in the ground, rain pissing down and half section messing where half the guys went to the area the "hot" food was being dispensed, three courses of soup, stew - tatties and veg, and cake with custard all dishes into your two messtins, if you brought two, one if you did not! The number of times a senior officer, WO or SNCO decided to let off a thunderflash as we were racing back to our holes simulating an attack. If lucky, one has made it back to ones hole in the ground, food still intact but awash with rain but usually the messtins get the heave-ho as everyone stands to. The other half of the guys who had not gone for their meal are snug in the knowledge they still have a meal waiting, albeit much colder
The navy do not hold the singularity of having cnuts as seniors.
