I dare say some here will say this should be in the NAAFI under the Walt thread. This is however a serious point that used to amuse me but is now starting to grate. Nor is this an "us and them" issue. There have been a thankfully small, number of occasions while making new acquaintances among regular counterparts, the general small talk switches from niceties to their supposed gentry/ qualifications county family etc. This generally occurs when they learn they are holding forth to Yeomanry Officers. I stress this is a small number of officers but there is a positive correlation between these pompous and false statements, dripping with affectation and certain regiments that shall remain nameless, except 912 Recon. I would not mind at all if they true but the blatant bollocks being spouted is an insult to the intelligence (even for Yeomen). In my experience the genuine types only ever refer to land ownership, family ties etc in passing and not in depth. This applies to those in the Army and otherwise Has anyone else come across this type of walting? Should they be revealed as frauds? Or just left to their fantasies. Does that make me complicit.
