No-one giggles more at a good walt than I. So here is a question, or potentially an admission. In my line of work (ploddery) are many ex soldiers. I encountered one recently who was doing some 'reverse waltery' to the typing pool; knowing smiles, neither confirm nor deny etc. Now I was never in anything like a special forces unit (I was once in a rifle pl that had a certain air of 'special needs'), but have met enough real ones to pick up that this isn't their style. I and my work partner (ex gunner) knew enough to ask 'difficult' questions and off he duly trotted and the typists giggled. Retunring to our office my oppo then accused me of walting myself in relation to a tie which I sometimes wear. It is a RA Bty tie from a regiment (not 29 Cdo or 7RHA) who I worked with in NI. I got it with the usual plaque and 'thanks we're off home now, don't go and get yourself killed' speech. I, in jocular reply, accused him of fraud in relation to drawing police pay, BUT Does this constitute waltery in the eyes of ARRSE?
