So you whinge about a charity event in aid of Combat Stress instead !So I tuned in to Forces TV about ten minutes ago, and I was greeted by a fairly interesting story of an exercise in Poland, a forensic reconstruction of a soldier's bones, and a heart-warming tale of reunited veterans going to the pier... then the rot set in, and I was greeted by a mangy looking horse statue (complete with fella dressed up in WW1 garb), and... a pigeon race in Bletchley.
The tenuous link with the Forces was that... well... erm... pigeons were used in war?
Is this normal fare for Forces TV? I feel like I've aged forty years in the time it took to watch those programs... normally I don't whinge about telly programs, but this was one of the most baffling links I've ever seen on TV.
He just is a perma-sending complainer.So you whinge about a charity event in aid of Combat Stress instead !
It was worth covering as the event was between the House of Commons and the House of Lords were they sponsored pigeons, so it brought Combat Stress into the minds of MP's and Lords, not a bad thing IMHO
On Your Marks: Bletchley Park Hosts Grand Prix For Pigeons"Right across both houses and right across the parties people are happy to give money to Combat Stress for this great race."
Ah, right, didn't notice that bit.
