Well, here is one thread that will be a bone of content!!! I believe, tha many a senior rank is thick as pig poo! Therefore the junior soldier, even the senior soldier, being "overlooked" for promotion. Not just that, you will hear me say, the man can also spell... Well, that is the sorry fact at my place; don't get me wrong, I am not expecting promotion, what I know will come is a medical discharge and I say"bring it on". I will have a decent pension also a lump sum, there's nothing that scares me....... Last night a friend, and I mean friend, told me his story and it reeked of vicitmisation but he would bot see sense and claim victimisation. He has a prous scots regiment heritage and that I respect! This guy will leave the service as a 22 year private and is clever, intelligent and fun! Doesn't start fights BUT spea2ks his mind.... This army has gone down the pan.
