Being ex-MAOT, I have spent rather a lot of time hooking loads etc under Wokkas, but it was 25 years ago. I *think* I recall that the Wokka had a special strop that...

Was pleased to see that they used charcoal and not the compressed-garbage briquettes. No nasty starting fluid either. Good deal!

I don't believe the President is required to return salutes (which are required by regulation), even though he is the Commander in Chief. However, Ronnie, having been a junior officer in the US Army...

Congratulations!

The best posting of my (Army) career was on an RAF station!

It was an honour to live in a block named for F/Sgt Middleton VC.

I go through phases. Although I have only ever been SLF, I’ve done quite a lot of flying. In the mob, on MAOTs. Hell, I used to take helicopters to work! Pumas would come and pick us up at Upavon and...
