  2. Well, the venerable 43 has set the bar, and is still nudging it upwards...
     
  3. Joking apart, if you are leaving or have left the Army check out the Lockheed Martin job page.

    Numerous jobs available.

    I am thinking of applying for the cleaner but I am not qualified.
     
  4. And it "also represents a great boost to British industry".
     

  5. To be honest, I'd rather they thought about a great boost to British Infantry!!

  11. Never did like them in white, it looks a fooking mess!!
     
  12. I am surprised that some fun loving squaddies in Catterick or on Salisbury plain did not think to paint a big black letter "F" in front of UN on april the first one year.

  14. I know Catterick and certain quaint towns around SPTA are dumps but I'd be surprised to find out the UN had deployed to them recently...
