I've got a wee problem A bloke I sometimes employ as a relieving teacher at my school says he's ex-Army, but some of his stories don't seem right somehow. He's Scottish, says he was a Lieutenant in the RLC and he's a big bloke. He says he served in Bosnia and was used a to demonstrate trench-clearing techniques using a 9mm Hi-Power (he also says he was a national level pistol shot). I had always thought that grenades/Carl Gustav were better for trench clearing, but I was never a footslogger, so I'm not sure, and it was over 35 years go that I left, so I'm a bit rusty. He comes to school on a motorbike, but still wears a pair of well-bulled brown officer shoes. I've no doubt he is ex-military, but some of his stories seem a little far-fetched. It's strange but when blokes come down here to NZ for the UK, the 13000 mile distance seems to cause an exaggeration effect. I don't want to stick his name on the forum, for persec, but I can message it to anyone who might know him.
