or thanking the troops who actually made his evacuation possible!
Wah?The US Marines have only got to live down Charles Manson, the poor old RM have got Pen Farthing to contend with.
I've never been a fan of the description of someone as being "entitled" but I think it really does apply to this person's attitude.
Had it been me then quite apart from being the petulant thundercunt he was. I would have done my damndest to get up to Brize and meet them as they landed - prefferebly having managed to blag / scrounge / otherwise organise** at least a couple of tinnys for each man has he stepped off; Wouldnt come close to paying the debt of gratitude owed - but would at least be a token.
Id certainly want to show my apprecciation.

Yes, I have had similar conversations and start by asking "are these dogs ones befriended by British soldiers on combat operations?" To which I get a definite yes and that these animals are vital for countering PTSD, and "you don't know the horrors these men went through". I then point out UK combat operations finished over 7 years ago - and ask if these dogs pre-date that time. Silence - apart from one silly bint stating that 'some dogs live longer than 7 years, you know'. In Afghanistan, on the street, I doubt it.Did you know every one of the cats and dogs he rescued was a soldiers service dog, (and cat presumably)?
He’s a proper hero he is, rescuing all those brave service animals abandoned by the cruel and heartless MOD after their service.
This is true! Mad dog fondlers told me!
