Well its far from the worst i've ever seen.But they could do with a bit of ol' Mick swagger. That's a weird setup the band has. Pipes mixed in with the regi band. I've never seen that before. But like I say, far from the worst.

What a bunch of war dodging cnuts!

Actually, I had a Gib Regt lad on my class 1. He was a good egg.

I actually still owe him a tenner!

Are you sure?

It looks very much like some malnourished street urchin they took on as a mascot.
Could be a gezzer with very long hair all done up in a bun, but my money is on female.

Not their fault that they come from a place whose government didn't have a burning desire to help Tony Blair get a better legacy than Margaret Thatcher, and was thus disinclined to start wars all over the place.

I may be wrong (not unknown), but haven't quite a few volunteered for Herrick Tours as individuals?

Yes this a news story from January this year:

Jan 09 The Royal Gibraltar Regiment

One RGR Officer at the HQ Task Force Helmand in Lashkar Gah, is Maj. David King. ‘I enjoy the work and I really cannot complain about my quality of life out here. As I’m at the main HQ, the food has the reputation of being the best food in Helmand province and we are provided with all the amenities we could wish for. Of course, I miss the family, although I do try to phone them every evening.’

Another member of the RGR serving in Helmand is Lt. John Pitto who is also attached to the 1st Battalion The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment. Lt. Pitto is the commander in charge of a twelve-man group tasked with mentoring members of the Afghan National Civil Order Police. ‘The task is important in the lead-up to our extraction in 2014. Our main effort is now the mentoring of local troops in order to set the conditions to help NATO leave Afghantistan. By then we expect Afghanistan’s own security forces can cope with future threats themselves.’

All RGR members currently deployed in Afghanistan are; Maj. David King, Captain Jamie Allan, Lt. John Pitto and Sgt. Delipiani.

There are approximately 10 other members set to fly out to Afghanistan in March.

They can still volunteer for tours. I know one lad who's a full screw in the Gibraltar Regiment and he's done 2 tours in Afghanistan. Forgot who he attached to for it.

That said....when he's in Gib he's idle as ****. According to his missus he heads in at 10 (ish) and clocks off at 2 in the afternoon and plays Xbox all day.

Easy life anyway.
