Not the sharpest tool in the box to include the reg numbers on the door in photo...but hey.....great show.....the cojo doing a good low level beach pass!! Aussies, Kiwi's.......well at least you fly better than ya play rugby......................
Most of the Posters here agree. Hats off to the guys. One good thing about the Vietnam era was that things like this were normal behavior. Healthy stuff. The piss ants who now run things are filtered through some PC school for wimps. Dam it was good back then.......
Notwithstanding that someone took the photograph, so what, the issue is more that it has now been posted in the public domain by someone and hypothetically there could be as many as 2000 copies floating around the planet.
From the Army point of view it could have been quietly swept under the carpet as it would have been one persons "word" against another prior to this "evidence" which someone has made the unenviable decision to publish. Now it has become a mountain of paperwork, grief, embarassment, duck shoving, ar$e kissing, careers side tracked, etc etc. Army Officers do not go looking for work after all and if it sticks you will wear it.
The funniest thing is that the "publisher in the public domain" is none other than - well you work it out.
Given where this person makes their living it would appear to be either mindlessly stupid, akin to shooting yourself in the foot, or maybe someone has an issue.
A suggestion to the "publisher" might be to purchase a large hand gun and then shoot themselves in the foot. Whilst you are recovering and waiting for the knock on the door from some burly Aussie lads, I suggest they read page 1 of the bear hunting manual, and purchase a large tin of grease and a file and prepare to file off the sights and coat the gun in grease so it doesn't hurt so much when the "Aussie Lads" place it where the sun doesn't regularly shine. (But then again????)
Remember the mentality that carried out this operation in the first place. They found it stimulating, so the exercise above could be attractive.
Hope you sleep well at night - N#D. Wonder how long it will be before you are allowed back on an Aussie Army base? The picture is not the funny part in this thread!
