I recently heard talk of a Christmas no1 attempt from a Gren Gds officer, Xander Rawlins. Ignoring the very odd guardsy tweak to an otherwise perfectly decent first name, he does seem very good and basically "Serving inf officer" is enough to give him a mention in the mighty pages of ARRSE. I also particularly like acoustic guitar music so really like the song in question 1000 Miles Apart. Xander plays the guitar well and if you watch this RMAS(?) video you get a warm feeling that he's a decent bloke. I have no idea if that's true of course! Here is 1000 Miles Apart. Post tour I look forward to the follow-up 1000 Yard Stare (Da da da da - toosh. Thank you thank you. ) Best of luck Xander. I hope the ARRSE force will be with you in the No1 attempt Oh, finally, Daily Mail article here. A bit crappy but then what do you expect from the Mail?
