I have a feeling that @DaManBugs is sometimes economical with the truth. But he's still my favourite really hard soldier here. He might have been fibbing about, well, all of it, but certain parts of it are true.
Like him being involved in drugs. On the receiving end.
Like him being in dodgy bars in Kreuzberg. And refused by even the most desperate whores.
Him having met some Polizei in Germany. Notts police have probably had the pleasure, too. We all prefer the pigeons.
The army intelligence test is probably true. Bugs comes across as being quite intelligent. Pity he failed the "not being a narcissistic, compound-lying pisswank" test. (Yes Bugs, I passed it too, didn't get a result compared to other candidates though. @bob_the_bomb one for you)
The Desert Eagle? he probably held one once. And it had no live rounds in it. Then again, he probably held his own cock once. (See above)
