General Discussion / Re: We could all join Dad's Army.

I'm not surprised either.

Pop a round through some Muslim bomber, who's just blown your mate's legs off, scrote's head in the Iraqi or Afghan desert & come home to a few years in jail.

You are absolutely right.

If you are on active service the option should be open to put down an enemy or perceived one in any way and not have the worry about being Court Martialled for it.
Grief, the training is second to none and the fact of putting someone down comes as natural as writing a letter home. It's the job. That is why the British Army in the past was so feared by the rest of the world - you just don't take prisoners.

Silly as it may be, but when on a 'war games' footing, you were told that anything you did in contravention to the civilian/criminal law had no place.
You would be answerable to the military.

I remember once on my first 'weekend warrior' adventure sat in the cab of a Bedford personnel carrier asking if I had to adhere to red traffic lights, infact anything of a driving nature. The Sgt. told me to 'put my F****** foot down and don't stop for no one.

Brilliant I would have lost my licence with the antics I did on my way to Aldershot that night if I had have been in my car!

There is nothing wrong with expecting males to work for up to 60 years - in fact many do!


As I said, IMO it depends entirely how you earn your living, I suppose if you are sat on your arse all day  you could, but very few people doing heavy manual jobs could cope until 75.
Also many with failing eyesight could struggle.
How many of us have 20/20 vision in later life ?

Really feel sorry for you losing one of the family which Max surely was. When I lost my Lab many years ago I had a good cry, I was really heart broken. Still remember the date 9-9-99 Lucy was her name she died of mouth cancer. She had the very best in cancer treatment which cost us a few hundred pounds but she was worth every penny.

An interesting Test, I thought, with honours even at the end. Blasted rain.

We've lost track of people that have asked us  is it safe to drink the water?  Can only say yes have drank the local water wherever we are in Europe, why not the locals drink it and are still aliven 8)
