I don't know why I suddenly thought of it. Perhaps it was because my mate and his missus were in Edinburgh today watching their son marching with 3 Rifles and I sent them a text to wish them all well, but the thing I shall forever miss most about the mob was the cameraderie. It was strange how even the bloke you didn't really have much time for was still judged to be a worthy confidente if you had something weighing you down and he was the only one around. Similarly, if he had a problem it was okay for you to rib him mercilessly, but as a mate, whereas it was fighting talk if an outsider tried it. What else do you miss?
