Shocking stuff, 58_P! Was the PM in the form of a suggestion / request that you partake in a man-love-fest or was it merely passing on gossip? Do you think that the COs need to set up a Blue Oyster forum with Geordie_Blerk as Mod?
Nothing.... I think snappers or "whoopsies" demonstrate the army ethos of team work very well... and set a fine example to others with their use of the "buddy buddy system".
It takes a very selfless man who is at the point of blowing his beans up his best pals dung socket to remember to lean over his heaving sweaty back, reach round and stroke his throbbing trombone until he's spu.nking the Dawn Chorus all over his counterpain.
Lets not confuse being a modern man with being a claypit crusader.
When I was a lad all you had to do was look in a shop window for too long and you were labelled a puff.... now you can have a todger go off in your face and have it written off as high jinx.
If you've been on a convoy for a good twelve hour stint and the rumblings of the bedford make your scrotum swell, is your oppo a puff if he reaches over and gives you a sly one off the wrist or is he just being a good egg?
If you've been on ops for a while and your sack is dragging around on the floor and you start to have a tug.... would it be considered bullying to make the sprog sort you out?
