"so disappointing to hear of people running down the army ; rather sad to see people on this forum doing just that. they do a great job and the use of perjorative language can only harm morale."
Ruth, You did a good job.

Plodder,
You are being too nice. As you will know members of the Cherry Berries call the rest of us that wear that wear navy - Crap hats.
A question for you - what would you call members of 9 Para - possibly - Cherry Berrie Ginger Beers, or members of 59 Commando - Boot Neck Ginger Beers?
Thats one of the main things I recall about about army life, a name and abreviation for everything. Its almost like a seperate language
Dave.

Advertising themselves as 'The Professionals' the Army would have us believe that no task is beyond their capability hence my comment that "I would have thought they could have provided a vehicular bridge by now".
I fail to see how such a comment, a challenging rather than a perjorative one, can be interpreted as "running down the army" and would never have thought them sensative enough to let such a suggestion "harm morale".
