Flatfooted? Conchie? In the past 65 years, have reasons not to join the army got any better? What are the best reasons you've heard from people who would have joined the army 20 years ago but somehow just didn't. My favorites: "Applied to and passed P Coy/Comando Course/THEM Selection, but didn't take my place in the regiment as I don't beleive in violence." Injured knee spiralled wildly out of controll, yet somehow is OK now. "Couldn't be arsed with all the yes-sir no-sir rubbish."
