  1. An idea to get this forum moving a bit more.

    The idea is I'll start off with a question. Someone answers, then asks their own question. Seeing as general knowledge of the armed forces is important (after all, you wouldn't take a job with a company if you knew diddly squat about them) then hopefully people will enjoy this, and learn a few things in the process.

    I suggest starting of with easy, rather bone questions before moving onto harder stuff. As everyone will be at different stages of revision.

  3. Answer:3
