    Will there be a 'surrender-off'?

  3. Only after the naked roll matt fighting.
  4. 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. . . . .

    I wonder if the royals are going to offer to cater for the frogs - are they aware of the rare delicacy known as les soggy biscuit?
  6. Look, it's the entire amphibious force of the United Kingdom:

    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.

    sounds like working with the krauts and their huge packed lunch type rations.
  9. 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.
  10. Can anyone actually fight realistically if everyone's got their hands up :)

  15. Feelin' the lurve.

    Dons anorak. "Technically speaking the boat is commanded by the man at the helm, the coxswain. Still he probably gave the order "Get that loafing **** off Guns." Anorak off.
