The biggest c*nt ever to wear a British Army uniform?

No. He commanded probably the finest army that the UK's ever put into the field and broke the German army. If the war had continued a while longer we'd have destroyed German's military utterly but they surrendered before we had the chance.
The British Army in World War 1 learnt a new type of warfare the hard way by trial and error, mainly error. By 1918 we had infantry, tanks, artillery and aircraft working together in a new type of warfare which was successful. Haig was the man in charge when things went wrong but I think history has judged him wrongly.

Since it is the NAAFI and not the serious bits, I think I'm free to say that you are a mouthbreathing retard. But I may be be misjudging you, so would you like to explain how, faced with the same political and military constraints as Haig you would have exercised the function of British Commander-in-Chief in coalition warfare between 1916 and 1918. In your own time ...

Biggest cnut in the British Army, well there was a "trained soldier" in the British Army back in the 70's and if I ever get to meet him again I would do something very fucking unlawful to him , what I don't know still haven't made my mind up. Trouble is I can't remember the cnuts name. Does that make me a ........as well?

And having Monash in charge would have made reliable communications, reliable tanks, reliable aircraft and reliable artillery direction appear from thin air, invented doctrines to make them all work together and stopped the French being knobbers overnight would it?

Oddly this thread has nothing to do with Australia ?
I reckon its not bushmills making all them cut and paste posts about trivial shit in Oz.

We should tell the fucker to close his window when he goes to work, theres a local parrot spouting dribble while he's away.

That said, as this shit thread aint about Oz, this must be bushmills, not the parrot.

Eitherway, I wish both of them get eaten by spiders.
