Well, ive hung my boots up, after 12 years of soldiering. I did finish on a high, a six month tour on Op Telic 3. which, i did enjoy. I was a multiple commander and returned to Blighty happy, except for a great feeling of let down. Ive always been so proud of the British army. The best fighting force in the world. How disapointed i was after seeing for six months an incompetant army, not just a single or even a couple of incidents, but day in, day out shambles. very disillusioned. I wont name any units, but i just had to ask, has any other TA soldier felt this way. Now, im not an idiot, i was a platoon sergeant, have two teenage girls and i run my own Successful company. So before the muck chucking. iv'e heard it all before with the STAB rubbish.
