Now Have We Got Everything?

"Spanner 3/4 inch."

"Check."

"Spanner 1/2 inch."

"Check......"

If I could remember how many different items came with a Warrior then I might hold a competition to guess.

A bit like guess how many sweeties in the jar. Well a little bit any rate.

But I can't. Let's just say there were lots of them.

We were back in camp checking our inventory. Our first exercise had finished. We'd learnt lots of exciting things like how to attack from a Warrior, how to defend from a Warrior and most importantly how to make a decent cup of tea at 40 mph cross country.

I must say, I do admire your determination to make a decent cup of tea in any given situation.

Tea rules!

I've never had better tea than that made by an Englishman! It's all that practice. I probably only drink tea 1 or 2 times a week on my own, but with Royal's family it's more like 12 or more!

I am SO not complaining ;o)

In a Warrior attack scenario, is it better to go hot-water-then-milk or milk-then-hot-water?

Surely you STOP for tea, don't you? After all, some things are just TOO important to be taken at speed.

All that knowledge will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life. Well the tea bit anyway. Now which goes in first - the tea or the milk?

Surely there must be a drill on how to hold your mug whilst performing attack and defensive duties?

Or maybe an attack which involves splashing scalding hot tea at the enemy?

Or is wasting perfectly good tea sacrilege?

Anx - the history of the British army is built on our ability to drink tea.

Kath - I've usually had 3 cups before I leave for work in the morning.

Katy - that depends on whether it's a left flanking attack or not.

Nick - needs must, etc.

PI - on exercise it's powdered milk so it has to be tea first.

Greavsie - carefully.

Jamie - or invite them round for a nice cuppa and a piece of cake before ruthlessly ambushing them.
