..so calling any Micks out there. I had to pop down the road to do something and as I was in a shop I heard a guy begging with the line 'old soldier'. I asked him which regiment he was in and he replied the Micks, so as I was buying some food and something to drink I did the same for him. He then fed me a line about being injured in 'Op. Spearhead', and as soon as I heard that I was supicious as I can't imagine that a formation name would be used for an Op., but then again what would I know. I asked him where his RHQ was and he said Pirbright which of course I know was Guards Depot, but as far as I knew RHQ IG is in Wellington. Has this guy spun me a line????

Depend how 'old' he is.
An old soldier would have completed his training at Caterham, a younger one, like me, :D at Pirbright in the 60s.
Chances are that to him the Depot & RHQ are one & the same.

LOL....so that means I've been mugged. Oh well, let's hope he was only feeding me 75% BS then ;)

Ahh well, that makes me feel better. He did have an air about him....
