  2. Thanks for that , its almost like we have a viable armed forces . Two helis you say ? bet the russians are shitting themselves

I just have the impression that as a result of the shrinking of our armed forces, what would have been regarded as just doing one's job twenty years ago is now being touted as news simply because there is nothing else to shout about. Cue more non-stories about servemen and women doing their jobs...

    Perhaps it is time we just binned the titles Army, Navy and Air Force and simply renamed the lot as the UK Self Defence Force...

    Indeed...Are you by chance related to VvvaaanMaaan ?

  12. I can now see why you would say that, but having seen his post at least five times previously, I hadn't noticed that he'd written anything.
