Okay so you now have an ex-matelot on this site!! This, gentlemen (and ladies?) is a Call to Arms from your "sister" website, www.lostoppos.com (take a look and visit the "Bootneck's Barracks" section). A member of our site brought to our attention/reminded us of the plight of our brave allies the Ghurkas in trying to get justice from our Politicians in giving them a full Army pension. I thought it would be a splendid idea if we joined forces and each website bombarded the government and local MP's with demands for a resolution to the matter. I urge you all to get on your high horses and give the BASTARDS in Government hell for the shoddy way they are treating this loyal and brave band of men. Who is going to be first over on our site to lend your support? Best regards, "Fletch the Matelot" p.s. I DID serve with you guys on HMS Intrepid in '70/'71!!! the Royal Signals guys were a great bunch.
