    This is going to end badly, I can tell.

    Whilst it's true that some of our number would not class students as people, they and their parents would.
  4. I am fantastic with Jamaican Steal drums, can i keep my dread locks for the solja bit?
  5. Not too bad pay for a few days marching and if it had said 'Food and beer supplied' I may have booked leave

    This bit is a bit strange though, 'Basic measurements (Chest, Waist, Inside Leg, Shoe, Collar, or dress, bra, waist, shoe etc)' - I mean, how many squaddies wore bras in those days???
  6. I don't think of students as people either.
  7. You need to post your request in here mate.

    Just TA

    Some great replies here.... but how many are being quiet and dreaming of being famous... most of the TA Walts I'd say. I worked on "Full Metal Jacket" before I saw the light and the majority of extras were Para TAs. Walt City or what?

    I along with some other members of this site did this last year for the x men movie.

    It was a good laugh and good dosh for sitting around doing **** all.

    I'd be on it like a tramp on chips if it wasn't for the fact the missus is due to drop a sprog right in the middle of filming.

    Get amongst it.

  10. Pretending to be soldiers......

    Sounds like a job for the RAF Regt.
