Doublecrease, that eyebrow wielding gobshite, has made it quite clear to his comrades back home that the war in Iraq is hell. A number of 'war stories' have come back to his Section, for instance: 1. He did the long run to the main gate at Basrah Air Station and broke a mild sweat in the 15*C. 2. He was only allowed ONE day off a week from his office based brew making job in the hotel. 3. He saw someone that could've been SAS, they were a bit hairy, he obviously couldn't be sure and wasn't about to ask for fear of being 'slotted'. 4. He went to the NAAFI at night whilst the main road was particularly busy. 5. There are mosquitos there. 6. He could smell some poo (well who doesn't that close to Basrah?). 7. He heard about SOMETHING that happened at a PARTICULAR grid ref involving a PERSON... yeah! 8. He is clearly delusional. Please help with words of advice for doublecrease in what has to be a most difficult time, since he manages to post on arrse whilst out there as well! Many thanks!
