Well at last I've got the first day in green of my new incarnation under my belt. To be honest I knew that the Army hadn't changed when the first and apparently most important part of the exercise was to ensure I paid my extra messing! Truly nothing has changed... It was very nice of the CinC to drop in and welcome me back and the weather was delightful. A thoughtful Army had also arranged for many old friends and acquaintances to be involved. Finally despite many horror stories, the food was absolutely brilliant, especially the curry lunch on Sunday. I believe the exercise was successful too!
