    When did it become "UK" military personnel and not British military...? I hate living in The Yewkay.

  6. I celebrated it today, by turning up for work, doing said work, having a brew, bacon and egg bap in the mess, read the paper, had another brew, did my usual stream of work, worked through lunch which I ate at my desk, worked, knocked guys off for PT, worked, and now I'm going to finish my celebrations by knocking off for a run before going home for dinner. Just like every single working day. Hurrah!

  9. Prestonpans must be in range surely? Just so long as they don't hit Alandas chippy.
