Back to the thread.. You know you're getting old when you're at a "Grab a Granny night and all the birds are younger than you!"

when you get a leave pass from the long-haired general, only to come home early from a night out with the singlies because you were bored! ---Scratch that. I'm not old -I'm just a sad git!

How about when a soldier looks like an old mate from way back and when you approach doesn't recognise you but after some discussion it turns out it was his dad you served with, happened to me recently and frankly I having trouble coming to terms with the years that I appear to have lost.
