Defo, Hearing is a problem for RAC types, along with ankles and knee (not just an infantry thing).I think knee and ankle issues, especially those of us that wore CBH are probably systemic through those of us that served early 80's to mid 90's. Speaking as a Sapper, I think my injuries are probably sports related as opposed to work related although did suffer a few injuries, especially fingers and toes.
Back in Nov 2019 you claimed to be 72/73.
Do you fib about absolutely everything?
Do you have a link to the Advrider forum please, or a user name?There is presently a 72 year old on the advrider forum who is taking his BMW R1200GS around Central America. Most other whinge in their mid 60's that the machine is too big, heavy, they need to sell it and give up biking. Not on your life.
You actually amaze me with the things you seem to have going on all the time.
I think I've been stuck behind you in a traffic queue and latterly, had no option to overtake your stumbling steps and girth in my local Aldi.
Kindly do the right thing and give your car keys to your kids and let them sell your Nissan Micra.
In my experience cordite fumes were never really an issue as they were farted out .I thought you lot might get respiratory issue being buttoned up together. then there's the fumes from the guns. My days spent buttoned up in a 432 with Jack my Number 1 on the Milan, after he'd been out on the raz was enough to give me breathing issues. Love my Ales, but I'll never think kindy of Tartan Bitter .
Sadly no, although I have spent a lot of time on two wheels - and a bit less in the gutter swearing .was it Motorcycle related, a lot of "only old as the Bike you ride" on here swear by the Pensioner at Speed to keep you young idea. They Ride responsibly/skillfully at all times of course.
