The good Reverend

#1
Any of you folks know what ever became of The Reverend Mortimer, Mortimer, Mortimer, digestive biscuit, I love my Kawasaki 250……etc etc etc????

I met this strange man years ago whilst undertaking some training with the Army, when serving in the Royal Marines.

Just wanted to know if he is still with us?

I was in Basic with him back in the days of Squad 77. He got pi$$ed off with officers asking if his middle name really was "Mortimer"...

The rest, as they say, is history, but involved a visit to the registrar, some Deed Poll documents and a very dodgy wedding at sea (to his motorbike).

He's alive and well, according to the MOD Intranet...

Ginge E^@ns got on really well with him during our course. I suspect he put up with us as we had lots of bikers in a platoon of 40 there must have been 15 bikers if not more. The drinks sessions when he would explain some of his interesting escapades were entertaining!

I turn up with a 4 man team (all Booties) and am introduced to Morts. We all shake hands and the first thing out of his mouth is "Any of you boys bikers?"

I had a young Marine in the team (RO) who replies "Yeah....I am"

Morts - "What bike you got mate?"

Piece of skin - "A Suzuki 125" he replies all proud with smiles.

Morts - "I asked if any of you were bikers.........not *******!"

This was my first introduction to the Int Corps, and I have held you in very high regard ever since. LOL
