Stand Down

As you know I'm just a tad busy at the minute.

I'm also finding it hard to find anything new to say on this blog. Hence the reason it's all got a bit crap lately.

So for the time being Universal Soldier is being stood down.

I'll almost certainly start blogging elsewhere.

I might be back here at some point. We'll see.

Thanks for reading.

If you do start blogging elsewhere don't forget to post the url here.

Good luck & best wishes.

Shame! Shame!

Hope you have a re-think or at the very least pop the occasional update and/or tale on the blog, I'm sure lots of us will be keeping an eye on the site.

Good luck with everything for the future and stay safe.

At no point has it ever been crap. Always interesting and informative. You are an inspiration.
I will miss your blog.
And if you see a porker with a border terrier meandering along opposite the NHOTT yell at him and ask him if he's the Beep. If he is, he'll buy you and the Mrs a pint!

Well. I'm leaving you as a bloglink in the hope that you return with all your complete and utter non-crapness. I agree with Beep, it's always been interesting and informative.

Ta very much everyone. I know there's 8 years left to go but the last 4 have been spent sat behind a desk. I probably will return to finish up the intervening 4 years but I want a break first - the reason I've got a bit peed off with the whole thing is that it's felt a bit disjointed for the last few months.

Stay around soldier. Either way take care and good luck.

I don't recall stamping your leave pass!

Still, it's a pity because 'Blogdom' needs a site like yours to offer civilians a glimpse into what the word 'soldiering' means. Take some R&R and please come back.

"but the last 4 have been spent sat behind a desk"

At a rough guess, AFCO?

Anyway, keep safe and please keep posting, even if it's every now and again.
Good luck on your new posting and hope you and the family enjoy it.

SoldierBoy: It's January 8, 2007 (January 9 where you are). It's been over four months/150 days/whatever. Regroup, recharge, and start writing again. Would it help if I got an officer to give an order? I hope that you, Mrs. Soldier, and the little SoldierSpuds are all well. Please write (here, on the blog, I mean; you don't know me).

The heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales consists of three white feathers. Perhaps, Cornet Wales should have a single white feather?
