Aussies Recruiting Again

#1
For any folks thinking about following in mine and the footsteps of others down under (and I know there are a few of you because I was suddenly popular towards the end of my career once my intent to move down under was revealed) you should be aware that the ADF are recruiting again. You need to be quick though as applications close on 11 Nov - details here:

Too old, plus what used to be pre-requisite for entry to Australia now appears to be a bar to it.

Fcuk me ... no takers? You do know you're going to get shafted pension-wise in a couple of years don't you and that I banked the equivalent of not that far short of my gratuity for a 2 and a half month tour ... and got another 3 gongs for it?

Feck me whats the ******* choice............sit in the UK and freeze your balls off, monthly high fuel bills, piss poor pensions, bullshitting politicos, wog immigrants like no ones business OR go work in the funshine for the rest of your natural.

Yeah ok, so half of them are related to sheep stealing cut purses and highwaymen but I think they've mellowed a bit with time and I hear they even have electricity and running water nowadays. If I could have gone to Oz I would have, but I had to settle for septicland for the foreseeable.

If I was one of you in a position to consider the chance I would give it some serious thought.

Ditto as far as settling in Septicland (mid '80s) - I've been wishing I had gone to Oz or NZ ever since. Too old and knackered now ...
