    The DCO just called me in to the office and told me that, she thought it was very funny. Have to agree, I would have liked to see the red faced bastards choke on the words as they asked.

  4. The minister was interviewed on the Nolan show this morning and constantly referred to the "MoD helicopter"; obviously couldn't bring herself to say army :)
     
  5. That will depend on a combination where they go and how long they are there for!
     
  6. One of the areas that is suffering worst is South Armagh. I doubt if there will be much bricking of helicopters going on as South Armagh farmers are just as happy to get something for nothing as any other farmer!

  13. Just been announced that the Irish Air Corps are sending a rotary callsign tomorrow.

    Seriously.

  14. The TA have long advertised 'no Security duty' or something like that. I don't know if that gave them any sort of safety.

    I was once at a Christmas Bop when a load of TA Medics rocked up... the proverbial bus load of nurses. My mate got a proper Catholic lass/bunny boiler. Wanted to marry him within a few months and no nookie until then either.
