There is a thread running on the recruitment forum suggesting that it would be a good thing if a character in a popular TV show could be depicted as a serving soldier. Imagine the benefit of a strong figure doing great stuff on TV. That got me thinking about this, imagine if a major TV show / film were re/written to include a squaddie as a key character and what would this do for recruitment. What ifâ¦ A new family move into Albert Sq, Dad goes for a pint in the Vic and after a couple of wife beaters is told that that Grant was in the Paras. âWhat that fat bald cnut?â says our man âyeah thatâs wightâ says cockney urchin. The scene moves on three hours. Grant is in a stress position against the juke box with his T shirt pulled over his head whilst our man pisses on his back shouting âSoldier my bollocks you fat bald walty cnut!â at the top of his voice. The scene moves on three hours Mrs Squaddie is rigged up in full webbing head down tail up, wearing hubbies favourite respirator whilst our hero bangs her ragged whilst âBritish Grenadiersâ blasts from the stereo. Iâd sign on again. Or imagine if Star Wars were written and Yoda was a proper instructor and Luke was learning to move the boxes with the power of the Force âSkywalker fecking red arrse Jedi Crow you are! RUN those ammo boxes through the swamp will you! Cnutting force my arrse! When Move I say Move you will â MOVE. Fast enough not was that, again do it. A Winner it pays to beâ Later Joda and Luke get mental on Swamp Juice and bezzer each other massively âBest mate you are, love you I do, bang your sister can Iâ slurs Cpl Yoda.
