I left in 2001, the missus has just turned Civvie after 22. It's struck me that she is going through the very same identifiable stages of 'transition' as I did. 1. Thank f**k for that. 2. I thought I'd have more time on my hands... 3. Why doesn't anyone tell me what's going on? (Well sweetheart....) 4. I never got a Regimental / Corps plaque... 5. Don't throw those away!! (Random bog standard course notes on some obscure aspect of Army Nursing with a foreword by Florence Nightingale) Discuss.
