    A crab winning a frog gong on Arrse? Bon chance with that.

  4. Flight Lieutenant is an airman rank now is it?
  5. A French medal for bravery hey? Well you don't see many of those.

    Tell him he's going the wrong way and land him in Barbados instead?
  7. I believe this is the first time the first time this award has been given to someone going towards the enemy... admittedly due to a navigational error.
  8. Nice one Abbo, again !
  9. No - it is like everybody in the army being referred to as soldiers including commissioned types. I am sure I could find an example with a quick googling but quite frankly can't be arrsed.

  10. Yep its about the same as an army corporal.
  11. So did the pilot who actually flew him there and hung around whilst Le Biggles pressed all his buttons get any sort of mention or just a slap on the back and a well done........
  12. He let a Frenchman drive - I'd say that was pretty damn brave.
