Trooping The Colour

#1
After watching this years Trooping The Colour on TV last night I couldnt help but notice how unfit and fat the Guards have become,the women on parade especially the fat ones looked a joke and I felt embarrassed for the army as a whole especially when I noticed the fat sncos in the ranks.
I feel that this is a reflection on how the health and safety and politically correct culture which was forced on the army has damaged the robust constitution of regimental standards of fitness and dicipline.A sad and sorry spectacle was displayed at the parade has undermined further the prestige of the army.
Army commanders get a grip of these unfit and fat individuals or throw them out of service !!

What a boring and irrelevant post.
Well done all the soldiers that took part in the Trooping, i watched it on thought it was brilliant.
When was the last time you stood still on parade for over 2 hours Moosh?

Irrelevant ? how can the fitness of our troops be irrelevant ? that absurd reply tells me that the guy has never served in the infantry and dosent realise that only the highest standards of fitness is required by combat troops on the ground

keepcalmcarryon...youve obviously not done any service on operations,and if you think the subject is boring then that tells me just how dim you are not to realise that physical fitness is one of the most important aspects of being a soldier,unless you have any positive contribution to make please be quiet and leave it to someone else to involve intelligent discussion

I somehow dont think 687 days of LSA in 5 years is something to be sniffed at. Granted, about 250 were from exercise, but you cant win them all eh? Im not going to get into a slanging match about my service, because i dont have anything to prove.
With regards to fitness, just because they are slightly overweight, does not mean they are unfit. Im pretty sure that if there was such an issue with their fitness, they would be on remedial training to get them into shape. Im sure the SNCO's have done their time, proved themselves on ops, or they wouldnt of got to the rank. Considering the average time to Sgt for them is anywhere between 9-15 years, thats plenty of time to add a few pounds of weight, what with the beer and curry which is part and parcel of army life. The soldiers on the parade, even the most unfit one there, still showed a remarkable amount of self discipline to stand still in the heat of a saturday afternoon in London without incident. They are probably a lot fitter than the majority of the British population.
Unlike you, you fat c*nt. Had to be said, this is the Naafi.

Edit to add: And the women on the parade. Well, yeah you have a point there, but the nice women all go to the RAF. Its a commonly known fact.

keepcalmcarryon...was wondering how long it would be before your true intellect was about to appear,you do yourself no credit by degenerating to such verbal,what is LSA anyway? and what unit did you serve with?on a point of fact ,soldiers overweight when i was serving were not promoted and indeed put on a warning to lose weight or were SNLR. 5 years sevice - your number had hardly any time to dry before you left

I watched, but can't say the size of anyone stood out to me! Mind you I was too busy cringing at the Subaulturn leading the escort to/for the colour who couldn't give the directions in his word of comand without taking a breath in the middle & making it sound like people do on Karioke!
