...a Para PTI with a biff chit..... excused shaving because it brings him out in a nasty rash and is a bit hurty...F*ck the runny, lifty, jumpy sh*t, I do believe that PTI blokey has a beard.
Hell in a hand cart I tells ya
Frankly, the current state of dress is a mess - reflects the current generation perhaps, but I see the lads in and around Brecon looking like heaps of washing waiting to be done.Brilliant result, but yes I thought the award party looked a bit wierd. Cheap knock off lightweights, a 1970s scrim scarf, thumbs in belts and a whole I wish I could wear a Denison and OGs vibe didn't look great
Totally agree, point to also note is she is a Sword of Honour winner so no slouch.I'm glad to see this happen. For a number of reasons. One, a woman has finally done it. Two, she's done it to the standard, not an accommodating standard brought in to prove we're all 'equal'.
In other words, she's set the bar while maintaining it - there can be no whinging from other women that it's 'unfair' that they can't get their maroon berets. Whether she's in the top nth percentile of women in physical terms is a moot point - so are male Paras (like many other soldiers and Marines).
But that, right there, is true equality. And a bloody good effort.
Well done, Ma'am.
