This is a question In the Army Now - The joy of the Armed Forces

I've never been a soldier. I was an air cadet once, but that mostly involved sitting in a mouldy hut learning about aeroplane engines with the hint that one day we might go flying.

Yet, anyone who has spent time defending their nation, or at least drinking bromide-laced-tea for their nation, must have stories to tell. Tell them now.

My sole experience of the army
Is from people I have known in it. One guy, a Geordie, tells me his only visit to London was to Whitehall for some kind of official dressing down.

Another person I used to work with was invalided out after having a washing machine dropped on his head while serving in Ulster.

Yet another person who I went to uni with was an absolute nutter. Went to Sandhurst he did, and dropped out three days before the end to come to uni. Berk. Last time he came to visit me when I was still at uni, we all got very drunk and proceeded to strip starko and go round the halls hugging people. This by the way was this time last year and it was bloody cold.

Then there was the para who on his first day at my uni got blind drunk and decided to abseil down the sides of one of the halls. Fair play really.

Odd thing is, they all say I'd make an excellent officer. I'm not sure whether to take that as a compliment or insult.
