o with half-a-dozen Afghan tours under his belt wants to spend a saturday night being talked at by some saddo who thinks that two years painting rocks at Aldershot was the best years of his 70+ life while drinking dishwater and staring at a piss-stained carpet and hoping an asteroid comes in through the ceiling.

its time to cut the link between the charitable work and the dingy clubs.
Quite frankly the funniest thing I have read on PPRuNe since I joined! My hometown RAFA was a cheap drinking den for loads of people who had no connection whatsoever to the RAF, but it still survives (just.) My local RBL is chaired by a guy who allegedly was ex-SF in the 60s-70s, and upon seeing my 4 medals to his 1, (poss 2,) clearly couldn't accept that a younger, ex-RAF guy could have more medals than him. I might as well have dropped a turd in his pint, judging by his reaction. Needless to say, I have not joined.... his problem, not mine!
