Off Again

After the exercise in Canada and the small matter of proposing to Mrs Soldier I'd returned to Germany. We'd then spent a few months not doing very much. A little bit of looking after vehicles, or pretending to at any rate. But then it was time for the off again.

The end of the Cold War had left the British army with something of a problem. The absence of a ravening horde of Soviet soldiers on their borders had led some of the Germans to having a change of heart.

No longer did they want scores of British squaddies trooping across their farm land, knocking down their hedges, nicking eggs from their chickens and generally making a nuisance of themselves.

I can't think why.

This had left the army with a bit of a problem over where to practice being at war.

So they did the sensible thing and went and borrowed a bit of real estate from one of our former opponents.

When the British army first turned up at the Drawsko Pomorksi training area the local authorities said that we could pretty much do as we liked but would we be so kind as to not test fire chemical weapons too close to any of the towns.

Makes you wonder.

Very interesting. I found you from the Ancient Clown and just had to see who it was that stood up to that wanker.I copied my comment to him and I think you might find it interesting as I'm sure he won't post it.
Again, in case you don't see in your archives, I am recommenting here. I am sure you mean well but you cannot and I repeat cannot claim to be what you are clearly not!I doubt you will post this but I have real issues with someone of your caliber pretending to be what you are not. If you are able to get some absent minded young pliable minds to bend as your trees then, good for you but I would certainly be afraid to stand next to you in a thunderstorm!
Riddles and parables are two different things.Do you know how many names my Lord has? Abba is just one. I give credit where credit is due but YOU sir must tread lightly.If you are to teach to the masses, that is a good thing but do not refer to yourself as I AM as you are clearly not.It is blasphemy for you to approach things in an egocentric manner as you have. Teach but do not hinder understanding.Preach but do not claim to be more than you are. My God is a jealous God and for you to make reference as if you are one and the same, well, you scare me! Now, put that in your pipe and smoke it!!

I would hope the Poles would be more welcoming, considering we went to war (WW2) for (partly) their sakes.
I assume babsbitchin is berating someone else - not you? Quotes would help. Not being rude.

Babs - interesting although I'd like to know what 'Your God' thinks of the term wanker!

Anotherbrother - cheers mate looking forward to easter.

PI - they were actually very welcoming and probably for the reasons eggbanjo says.
