    Next year is the 30th Anniversary of Op Corporate, many of you on the site where not born, when this event happened, a few of you whom I know were down there, in the Summer of 82. When I got to Stanley I happened to be in The Govenors residence and this Plaque was on the wall in the hallway, it just happened to fall into my smock. I have my memories and dont need to dust this anymore.

    So a sensible bid for a bit of military history Thankyou.

    Thank you dear boy. My door is always open and if you ever fancy a curry in the Wee Curry House up the West End, just mention my name. The curry will be no better or worse than usual and you will have to pay for it. But I do like it when people poodle about the place mentioning my name. It is not easy having an ego like mine.

    Ah ****. You know what it is? There is always some ******* **** who is stupid enough to blip the radar of their betters. Usually a ginger Welsh four-eyed dwarf who thinks he can fucki.....

    Oh. Hi Biscuits. Didnt see you there. Hows tricks?
