    After nearly 24 years in green, I've got a week to go before I officially become a civvy (again!). Obviously it's been several months since I was last anywhere near a military base and all the departure admin has been sorted. I do feel that I should mark the event in some sort of way though. Any suggestions?

  2. I went on a massive drugs bender and generally did all the things I wasn't allowed to do in the army, with the exception of gaying.

  5. Have a good long cry at the passing of one's youth and the impending decline into decay and decreptitude. Congrats though :salut:
     
  6. Take yourself off to a quiet bar somewhere. Have a few drinks and reminisce. You'll miss it sooner than you think.

    And after 24 years, from BANNER to the mess that was the Former Yugoslavia to TELIC and HERRICK, fucking well done!

  10. I promised myself 6 months of doing nowt (no change there) and eating chocolate and watching daytime telly.

    Going to sleep when I want, waking up when I want, buying complete shit off the internet when I want, loud LOUD music when I want, walking around the house naked when I want, eating cheese toasties in the middle of the night if I want, ignoring my phone when I want and dressing like a mong when I want.

    I'm nacked on the 1st July. I might have to get a job and JSA and stuff.
