There are a number of good threads doing the rounds at the moâ that got me thinking about life after a life in green. Are you a former soldier, ex-squadie etc or are you âa civi nowâ. One can usually tell the former. They turn up at least 5 minutes early, they have a âcan doâ attitude, their clothes are clean (and usually ironed), their hair is neat, their shoes are clean and shiny and they have a stunner of a wife! The later never stop telling the former how theyâre ânot in the army any moreâ, slack off and skive between breaks, only have clean clothes where theyâve been to see their mum, treat the working week as a holiday from hygiene and are single but sexually involved with a cartoon temptress or via their webcam!
