Hi Peeps an Peepesses!! I was talkin to my lad yesterday and he is considering putting in his papers, Why! because of his virtual marrage. His missus bless her cotton socks is in Osnabruck with his 2 1/2 year old bairn. He has hardly seen either of them over the past couple of years. He spends more time on phone to her or MSN,, hence the virtual marrage. He is, at present on a gunnery instructors course in Blighty, this finishes in November. He arrived back from the Gulf (Second stint) couple of months back. It seems that rumour central has his regt earmarked for the gulf again early next year. If it isnt the gulf it probably be a 6 month stint at BATUS. In Nov/Dec he will be on the ranges at Hohne, when he is due to change quarters but has been told he probably wont get leave for the change over. Leaving his 7 month pregnant wife to do the job. Now we get our estemed leader from No 10 saying he will stick with the Iraq's for as long as it takes, and oh yes don't forget the inceased commitment in Afganistan. I am just waiting for the whole system to implode. Makes my 9 years with two tours NI, Canada and Berlin look like a breeze. My heart goes out to any one who is a pad.
