"The white lanyard...again !"? As has been said of many things, 'There lies the road to unhappieness'.
You start a thread with that title for what ever reason, no matter how well intentioned and it becomes a target for any Wedgie, or any other Regt or Corps for that matter, who has a downer on the 'Planks', and they just drop in to wind you up and take the pizz. Happened before and it'll be the same this time.
