Will there be a 'surrender-off'?

Only after the naked roll matt fighting.
I won't hear word said against the Fusiliers Marins, since they patched up my scalp wound in Sarajevo, a decade and a half ago .

More important, if there is to be naked roll mat fighting, may it please involve french lady nurses at least as comely as the ones in their RAP . . . . . and may it then be on XXXTube and in HD within minutes. . . . .

Fookin' looxury.

Last time I was on ex with Frog troops (OK, it was 30 yrs ago, but it was -20 in Berlin at the time) they were kicked outta the cookhouse tent after brekker, with a canteen full of black coffee going cold on their belt, a kiddy-size shoebox full of pate and cheese in their Bergan, and to top it off, a 30-inch baguette stickin' out of the top, like an antenna. I'm guessing they got hot food once every 48hrs.

I only did one event with the Hermans - a weekend at their Offizierschule in Hanover.

On the piss from touchdown until 3 am (beer, beer, beer Jagermeister, beer, beer, Campari & Orange . . . .)

Reveille at 6 am.

Breakfast: fist-sized lump of boiled bacon. Bread. Black coffee.

Lunch: err. f'uckall. Unless you count the hiking and the various competition events as some kinda nourishment

Evening Meal: Post-ENDEX Gotterdammerung style (mit blazing braziers) Wurst-und-Bier Fest. Highly therapeutic.

O - then we went downtown.

I think.
