long time lurker

Hi Lads,
I am a long time lurker who has finally decided to take the plunge, I have been enjoying the standard of humour amongst you lads and im glad nothing has changed,I am a bit of an oldie(I hear you all groaning),last four was 2405, there were no tree suits in my time,we just painted everything green and hoped nobody would see us,my time in consisted of wagon cleaning,keeping the russians at bay, and drinking ourselves senseless,I,ll keep my introduction short, and finish by saying to all of you in dangerous places "safe home"and to all the grammar and typing nazi,s among you, if you have a problem with mine please contact www doigiveabollocks.com.
just an afterthought,surely there must be some sort of medical treatment that mdn could apply for :wink:

Ordinaryforces. "safe home" our lads. Amen to that. Be a bit careful around here. There is a strange slithery hissing thing called Threadbare ,or something very like. If you happen accross it stamp on it.

Don't encourage them, mate. There are some with big enough egos as it is.

Anyone who has not said "Pay and paybook correct" and meant it is just a nig, IMHO. :D

seeing the pay and paybook correct sah, i have to ask when did that die out,i mean every thursday we paraded in front of the most youngest officer they could find, dance up to him remove beret,accept wages,you did,nt dare count it in front of him , but you still had to state pay and paybook correct,I suppose you all nancy about with gold cards paid directly in your banks now :lol:
