Not again.......................................... :(
Ah, not a career soldier then, eh?
Not in the Army that I was in, they don't. Foreigners - non-NATO, that is - paid over £250,000 to attend one of the shorter courses that we ran in the late 80s, and none of them were there to make up numbers. Getting RTU'd would have been disgraceful to them, and a cause of great concern for us a
All noted before, many times..... Does anybody here still believe that Mr Prophet ever intends to join?
? Seemed to be a reasonable question to me. I spent 33 years in the British Army, and learnt to chill out a quite an early stage of my service. Thanks for the advice. However, I'm sure you won't mind if I ignore it. :rolleyes
In the British Army we don't beat the livin' sh*t out of people, make them stand in the 38C sun with a rifle over their heads for hours on end, put recruits in tin boxes and beat the sides, or put recruits on short rations. Apart from that, military training is pretty much the same anywhere as in a
Any No4 Mk2 Long Branch is better than any other No4. Opinions are like armholes, everybody has two, more or less
and in the end, there was only silence....................I guess that having modern rifles that shoot like lasers spoils you for having to do some REAL shooting work with a bullet that trundles along a about a third, and less - MUCH less - than a modern long-range rifle bullet. I'm disappointed
Trust me, by today's prices you are doing very well. My Uncle Geoff was a sniper in the Royal Regiment of Canada, and HE had a nice Long Branch No4[T]... sigh
That's the stuff. Selling it here in UK was problematical, as a lot of people only had 500 rounds on their ticket, and some PITA 'blurbled' that he always got about 510-15 in HIS can... Having too many rounds here in UK is as much a problem as it is in the RoI - as it's an absolute offence here, t
The 20mm Vulcan cannon is still in service in many front-line aircraft, for both anti-air and ground attack use, hence the switchable fire rates. As for being in the A-10 at the time of firing, all you feel is the amazing deceleration from the recoil - you hardly hear the sound at all.......the usu
Greasy beyond belief
I have a fine photograph of General Richard Mulcahy wearing his Navy Luger in it's low-slung holster taken in 1922. It can be found on p85 of Justin Nelson's fine and well-researched book 'Michael Collins - The Final Days'. Mine is a signed copy by Mr Nelson
Back a few years to around 1990, when we had an A-10 squadron on our local base, among other things. Because I was on TDY there, I got a ride in the back seat of their trainer to Holbeach ranges on the coast here in East Anglia. So I got to hear and feel the 'panic machine' from REALLY close-up.
Yup. Even I have one. But I am legally entitled to it...:D
