For ages on this site i have read the rantings about how useless the RAF are, well i wont have it any more. My daughter is going out with an RAF chap who fixes Hercules engines in his day job. Despite his constant moanings about work and having to go on Ops for 2 months every other year i have started to warm to the bloke. Then yesterday he proved his worth beyond any shadow of a doubt. In the blistering heat of this fine British Summer my weekend was about to be ruined by an inability to finish of the Ground Force type project that the wife had set me, the strimmer was broke! In jumps aforementioned Hercules engine fixing bloke and sorted out the strimmer in no time at all, well it took about 2 hours actually but he saved my skin. never again will i moan about our light blue dressed compadres, bloody good skills and also made me less nervous about flying in Hercs too. i knew it, i just knew they had a purpose! (This does not include movers obviously). Oh yes and then he cooked the BBQ food for us too so that was a bonus, i just hope he isnt softening me up to tell me the daughter is pregnant!
