As you said Felixstowe is to far. That's not the point I was trying to make, I've drunk in a few RBL
Felixstowe, Bovingdon, St Austal and a couple more I can't remember at the moment.
Bovvie recently took over a pub after doing it up. St Austal's I must admit, wasn't the hight of excitement, but it was mid week.
There are some good ones, but it finding them now days.
A few years back when I was working for a well known pub chain, HO decided that each pub was allowed to have a collection box for another charity as well as the company charity which was, and still is, CLIC. I popped across the road to the local Legion club to try to get hold of a Poppy tin, as I explained that I was an ex squaddie and supported the charity, every eye in the bar area turned in my direction as if I had 2 heads, looking around, it seemed as though I was surrounded by never served civvies.
Yet.... every time we have a poll, or whats your last three, or whats your first three type thread most people have served. I know there are quite a few civvies on here but I welcome them - I 'embrace' them, I love their diversity.... if you prick us do we not bleed? I have to stop drinking
