The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

    Nails and suffering a pay cut at the same time.
     
  4. Nails made from tungsten with a splash of depleted uranium added for good measure.
     
  5. But you have to enjoy an official statement this good!

    "Several hours later Lt-Gen Gillespie revealed 105 SAS men had been victims of a stuff-up. He said 101 cases would be fixed immediately."
     
  6. Nails as.
     
  7. And they (Aussies) have just voted in a 'Labour' government!
     
  8. Nails indeed.
     
  9. I think that sums it up nicely!

    Ref their pay cock-up, do they have JPA too?! :roll:
     
  10. When I heard this earlier in less detail, I thought he lashed himself to the front seat...but feckin hell, between the BBs and radiator 8O

    By the way, NZ awarded a VC to one of its SAS soldiers last year for bravery in Afghanistan.

  13. You know, this is a good thing, the Taliban must think the Aussies are nut's "look, they tie themselves on so they can fight on!"...they usually have the crazies, it's good we have some too.. 8)
