Looking at the amount of time we devote to it in the British Army, I feel it could be better spent doing something else.

For starters, Afghanistan never once gave me the opportunity to form a line from the column of route. As a minimum, I’d have been stepping outside the Barma lane.
I'd say we don't devote that much time to it really. Our still isn't great, but our fighting is pretty good.

Then look at places like China who literally spend days at a time drilling for perfection, then wonder where their combat training goes.

Having said that....... I didn't do much combat training either, really. Not if you looked at a years cycle. Should've been ranges every other day when you think about it, but instead it was only during the blocks where it was in the syllabus.

Hum...

That was hilarious, FFS I watched that and then I found this one:


The must go to Bollywood to learn that - surely that can't be on any sort of Army training. I mean how could you keep a straight face doing that, the facial expressions had me spraying a cup of tea all over my laptop screen when I burst out laughing.

What the **** is that on their feet - looks like shoes with a pompom stuck to the toes. Who the fucks designed those monstrosities? So guy sitting at home thinking 'how stupid can I look - I know I'll glue a pompom to my shoes', then someone else saw it and thought it looked good. Mind you have you ever seen those boots they wear in mexico with the big long toes? It would look even madder if they were wearing those.


If you kicked someone in the face with those - there's a good chance you'd blind them!

American marching seems odd - not in keeping with the slightly fanatical approach they have to drill.

Highly amusing but little beats the Spanish Foreign Legion Synchronised Mincing and Greasy Chested Nipple Pointing Team.

Maybe if our Army had some women like these to march about with - drill would be more "interesting".


I seem to remember most army women being munters or 'boyish' looking lezzers, with the odd 1/100 being straight and maybe a 7/10 in the looks department. Maybe there's something in the water here - but how is it that 'foreign' birds seem to be much more attractive???

I dated a (ethnic) Chinese girl for a while some years ago. Trust me, you need a detached house.

And yes, EVERY one of my mates asked the question "Does she have a horizontal gash?"
Well did she?

That high pitched squeaking that they make would drive me insane - I wouldn't like a bird to have a deep voice, but that crazy noise asian (Japs/Chinks) types make (according to porn websites), would give me a soft-on.
Agreed.

It gives the impression that even consensual encounters are rape porn judging by noises & faces they make. They never seem to be enjoying themselves. . . . . . . . .so I've been told.

As for that drill sequence? I have a question for the OP.

Granted, drill can be a pain and a poor way to spend your time so why in Hades would you want to do all that criss-crossing & trumpet playing at the same time?
Do you know how much time you'd have to put in to learn that, I'd wager it's a shite site more than you would anywhere outside the Household Division.

These guys do this for fun :rolleyes:


They're good though, must have put in a few hours in the drill square :cool:

I wonder if any get jailed if they miss a turn :D
So that's how they regulate the morning rush hour.
I don't know whether that is clever, funny or just plain daft.

Having been there in early July and viewed the Guard change, trust me-the glasses are needed, what with all that sun beating down and back up from the white marble.
Concur completely from similar experience, but this is the NAAFI Bar, so let me vent some faux moral outrage, wilya! I still think their drill is pants though.
