I know there is a thread about silly things women say but I cant find it as I have had to have a wine to calm me down, anyway mrs m and myself were watching "warship" tonight on sky, when the conversation went like this:

Me "why are we, the Army, not referred to as the Royal Army"
Mrs M "what like the RAF and the RN"
Me "yes, not fair is it?"
Mrs M "no......so what does Army stand for"
Me "pardon ?""
Mrs M "is ARMY an abreviation for anything, I thought it was Armoured.....something or another?"
Me "do we have any wine in the fridge!!!!"

Much as I love and cherish her I think remedial drill is the answer... :roll:

Actually, apart from "abbreviation" of course, your Mrs was right: "army" means "a body of men with weapons", "a body of armed men"; while the word "armour" means "defensive covering worn in combat, arms or gear".

So, your excuse is invalid, step away from the fridge! :wink:

Whilst recruiting at an airshow an air to air tanker landed and taxied past our position, a mate of mine shouted upto the pilot that his reversing lights were not working. Pilot replied I know, I'll have a look at the bulb when I get down. Told my wife this amusing story who replied "They don't have reversing lights do they"?
