OK guys I've been lurking for months now and enjoyed all yer prattle so decided to post. I don't know if its normal to introduce myself but thought it might help me to settle the nerves. Don't want to be known as a Walt (Its taken me weeks to work out what that was). Anyway in for a penny 'cause theres no pounds to spare. I did do a little time in the army but not a lot. Got called up as a National serviceman and then enlisted for 3 years because the money was better and I could choose what I wanted to go in. I wanted to be a gentleman of the Royal Engineers and National servicemen got put anywhere so it was worth it. I served King and country (Yes there was a king on the throne then but only for a short time then HM the Queen took over.) After the statatury 16 weeks sapper training I was posted to Minden in Germany and then for a while to Berlin. In Berlin we were holding back the Bolshevic Whores. So thats my short sharp history don't bollock me for coming all over unnessesary cause I can get pissed off with the best of em. Good to be amonst friends ..............I hope.
