Busy Busy Busy

I'm going to be rather busy fairly soon, first with work and then with moving the family a few hundred miles.

Which is going to lead to a bit of a pause on the blogging front.

Before I shoot off I was wondering if anyone has any questions they'd like answered about life in the army. I'll try to do any answers as complete posts in themselves and get someone else to publish them in my absence.

So fire away.

From the outside, what looks like the hardest thing about army life is the time away from family. Is that true, and if not, what do you find most difficult about the army life?

i have many, many questions, almost all of them somewhat faecetious in nature!

however the first seriouys question that pops into my head is... how do you feel when you hear the british action in afghanistan and iraq criticised? im guessing it must make you feel pretty unloved/unappreciated back home here in blighty. is that accurate?

p.s., i might come up with some more irrevrent questions soon!

How do you feel about the professionalism of the British army in comparison with other countries armies?

I'm sure the answers to any of my questions lie in your archives.


1. Do they eat powdered eggs in the HM's army? What are powdered eggs really? What's the best army food? What's the worst?

2. Do you ever rethink your career? Wish you were a corporate whore and not a gun toter? (Grass is always greener, no?)

Weren't you terrified signing up initally for 22 years? Such a long time had it turned out to be the wrong choice for you (which clearly it is not).

Have you ever shot anybody?

Have you ever been (personally as opposed to generally in the midst of many) been shot or shot at?

Are there many Officers like the (ex) one we've got at work from Deepcut? (intimidating bully who's going to lose some bits of his anatomy when he transfers to our shift. If he behaves as he does on his current shift his balls will be leaving via the top of his head)

Do you realise how much ordinary people (and odd people) appreciate what guys like you do? 'Cause we do.

How much does the regimental tradition still survive with al the political buggering about, and is this(the tradition)for good or ill?

And four dinners is right. Whatever the politics there are plenty of us in civvy street who know just how much we owe to you and your illustrious predecessors.

Good luck with the move and the posting. Here's hoping you get to stay out of harms way.
