When you went to war, what did you bring back?

#1
I didn't bring anything back from the first Gulf as I didn't even see any Iraqis to rob. However I did bring back couple of Artillery empty cases with Russian writing on from Bosnia which now lie in a box with the rest of my Army statues and crap. Which I will soon get round to sorting out.

I know a Geordie Signals bloke that brought a wife back from Bosnia and made the News of The World and GMTV.

So did you bring anything interesting back from a jolly abroad?

If your the bloke from 5 Scots I don't need to know about any fingers (allegedly)

Some Yugo cash of massive demoninations, I remember well our collective thoughts of "holy fuck look at all this money, we could be loaded" then the immediate realisation that it was worth nowt.

The sight of Ted checking the underside of his ballbag as we all walked into the room.

The sickening feeling you get when you know that you have recently been walking on a patch of ground that contained a landmine that some other unlucky bloke "found".

Some Matterhorns (finally)

That is all

A huge pile of shit stained pants and D&V which lasted four days.




Plus a lot of horrible memories and a few good ones and a desire never ever to go again.

My mate came back with a side pouch full of other people's undies that had been discarded in a skip in Shieba.


He reckons some cunt had stitched him up! Who would think of a trick like that?

A big mola which i got off an Indian woman selling outside the gate at West Corozol, C.Z. A big-ass machete which I got from a dodgy seller at the Miraflores Locks jumble sale, said to be the one style favoured by Manuel Noriega when he was in the mood to adminster a good old fashioned ass-whipping. A wooden ashtray carved out of tropical hardwood. It had the word "Honduras" carved on the outside, and it had a small Honduran coin in the center that you used to stub out your fag end on. It also had a Mayan carved in dramatic relief on the outside. I got that one from a stall seller outside Oso Grande Army base. :p

From Kosovo, a KLA (UCK) badge. NI, an INLA roadsign. Iraq, an AK bayonet. Afghan, mild PTSD and enough MTP to start a surplus shop.
