    I'm sure this has been done before, probably many times, but it's a Friday afternoon, I've lost the will to live and bored sh1tless, so; During my service I met many people who were known as "characters" and a number who were known as nutters. Just wondered what types others had met?

    We had a young captain, one with a treble barreled name, and he owned a very fast, very sporty car. A Ford GT40, I believe. One day he was pursued by the Deutsche cops, who couldn't catch him, but reported him to C.O. he got a major bollocking, and decided to leave army. Went to a firm that built and raced cars, applied for a job. Personnell manager told him that 'would not employ spoiled little bastard as long as hole in personell offrs buttocks". Young officer left in high dudgeon. next day, he bought the firm and sacked pers offr. Respect!

  8. Doesn't the scale go from,





    The biff chit holders etc are just cunts.
  9. Clunks.

    Good hearted but thick as Shite

  12. The 'Tommy Two Sh1ts' - If you've done it, they've done it twice.

    And of course the civvy who's equivalent rank is..........
