Having escaped from the baddies C-17, 007, Q, M and Moneypenny were glad to have their fall arrested at the Arecibo Telescope...

I have just emerged from a medically induced Coma. Nutty awarding me first place was all too much! (Must've been painful for him too!)

Actually, I was a tad busy dealing with some Festive Fires etc so my apologies... and genuine gratitude for the well wishes too!

Please carry on Dan. My entry would've been "Dammit! I only volunteered because they said there'd be no strings attached!"

Fear Naught isn’t our motto love, it’s all about government cuts to the tank force and our fear about how many we will end up with.

Oh no! Hoskins is navigating again.

That's okay. This time the tank commander will be willing to stop and ask directions.

Tell the driver that he's going too fast, he's too close to the tank in front, he's taking the corners too sharply and if he doesn't drive more quietly I shall get out and walk.

Why are you looking backwards?

I’m the Navigator, we’re else should I be looking?

It’s all well and good, but why are the mirrors all the way down there on the front of the tank, how can I be expected to check my make up and hair?

These bloody big colourful flags make us stand out like a sore thumb in this snowy landscape, at least the French over on our flank appear to have recognised the problem and are flying white ones….
