(removes cap, tugs forelock respectfully, clears throat) Dear CO's Squires, I knows it your train set and all that, but wouldn't it help if you posted an open letter about the apparent change in arrse attitude. My own perception of the average arrser is that of the the typical squaddie depicted in Hands & McGowan's book "Dont Cry For Me, Sgt Major"; a cheeky chappie with an irrepressible sense of black humour that can always be relied upon to make a witty remark and scamper away, will always push back against authority in a jocular manner, never takes himself or the situation too seriously, but is a professional at heart. Consequently, 99.9% of us, if told that certain words or subjects are verboten will immediately use them - but if we were told why, would immediately understand why and toe the line, albeit with some good-natured piss-ripping. Rumour is rife - are you being 'leaned on', or simple being proactive? Have you had a gypsies yourself? We've know why 5A and HCV went.. but Stacker??? I mean... he's harmless! Just asking, like.
