Back in the 80's I joined the TA to run around and shoot at stuff, preferably Russkies (remember them, I was in the Kremlin last Sunday - it was nice with excellent ice cream). With my current unit I haven't had an exercise since 1995, since then it's been courses, training, instructing, CPX's and god knows what. I don't think I can remember what it's like being tactical for more than 30 minutes.. In the old days we turned up, dug a fire trench, patrolled, attacked something, went back, got attacked, filled in your trench and went home. Is it just me or should I keep doing S types (FTRS) for the fun of it..
