Brit hoping to join

Dusaboss,

Just a thought in French which I like. As I wrote above you must not be so unhappy or introverted.
I can't type the accents. However you can search your dictionary to comprehend the content.

" Vivre sans ami, c'est comme mourir sans temoin."

" On a tous besoin de se reposer sur quelqu'un et de sentir entoure et aime ! "

Keep smiling.

That's quite true. That's why solitary confinement can be quite effective to tame troublemakers.

Sexpert,

On FB the RM have a forum purely for those that can provide proof of service. It even denies supporters or enthusiasts joining. Reason being so many Walts have attempted to join.

This is the same with the Once a Marine always a Marine site.

We expose on a regular basis people in the public domain wandering around wearing combats and insignias. Even in civvies with ties and badges.

We are ever vigilant. As for me I have never challenged anyone (with one exception) in my local I gently queried a man boasting about his SBS service. This was several years ago in the village I have lived in for 30 years. He was unable to substantiate his claims and scuttled away.

I dislike confrontation but loathe and detest Walts.

I have for some years trained in Wing Tsun,Wing Chun....it has other spellings according to the Organisation/lineage. I have met the guy in the Video some years back he was a top Student of Leung Ting who has his main School in Hong Kong. I Always wanted to visit there but very expensive. The Little China man makes Money of Course..LOL. I worked with a guy who was ex Coldstream Guards & he said Hong Kong was great.

yes it´s all changed… when i left end of 94 the British Army was taking in a lot of Commonwealth Country People such as guys from Fiji. I met a couple on a Radio op Course at Catterick in 91 i think it was. I was also on a Linesmans Course with two Gurkhas. A Sgt & Cpl. The Sgt was quite but the other was a good guy. we got him drunk on our end of Course piss up. Their selection to get in is hard. Both were Gurkha Signals. Best of luck Buddy.
He said he was 7 rha which is the Para Gunners Artillery. As we had also 29 Commando Royal Artillery. I was Artillery and all of US did a swimming Test in 1985, treading water ..etc. This was in Basic Training Woolwich London. Some then volunteered for 7 rha or 29 Commando. Don't know how he got out because of a Woman because then the Minimum time was 3 years. You could PVR after 3 if you bought yourself out. I reckon he was discharched for another reason. i did 4 years R Artillery then 5 R Signals. Still live in Germany today. Was posted here in late 85 after Training. Wife is German.
Meghan and Harry unveil statue of forgotten British-Fijian war hero

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have unveiled a statue of a largely unknown British-Fijian war hero who died in battle after holding off hundreds of enemy soldiers for hours.
Harry and Meghan paid tribute to Sergeant Talaiasi Labalaba, who saved the lives of his fellow soldiers at the Battle of Mirbat in Oman in 1972.
Only eight Fijians have joined the elite Special Air Service (SAS).
The royal couple unveiled the statue at Nadi Airport on Thursday morning.
They are on a 16-day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

'He was a hero'
Sgt Labalaba, who was born in 1942 in Fiji, was recruited into the British army in 1961 and quickly made his way into the SAS.
Known to his colleagues as a "gentle giant", he was part of a team of nine SAS soldiers based outside Mirbat.
They were part of a secret military operation code-named Operation Jaguar and their duty was to protect the Sultan of Oman from a group of Marxist guerrillas known as the Popular Front for the Liberation of the Occupied Arabian Gulf.

On 19 July, 1972, a day before they were due to go home, they were attacked.
Knowing the unit was hopelessly outnumbered, Sgt Labalaba ran hundreds of yards to reach a 25-pounder artillery gun which is usually operated by four to six men.
He held out for two and a half hours against at least 250 fighters, repelling wave after wave of attacks. He was shot in the jaw and eventually died when a bullet passed through his neck.
"Laba was exceptional," one of his fellow soldiers told the BBC, "even among the very high standard of the other Fijians in the regiment."
His comrades say that without him, they could not have survived.



"He was a hero," his son, Isaia Dere, told the Fiji Sun, ahead of the ceremony. saying that he was proud of his father's "bravery and courageous spirit".
In 2009, a statue of Sgt Labalaba was installed at the SAS headquarters in Herefordshire. Calls have long been made for him to be awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest award for gallantry.

The royal couple left for Tonga shortly after the unveiling of the statue, as they continued their 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
Fiji was a British colony until 1970.

why lie to the gestapo if you were discharged by request? A bad decision with the benefit of hindsight but 2 years shows you fully understand military life , did you pass P Coy?

Why lie to the nation. ..when Harry is not of Royal blood
His biological father was a captain in. ..what ever regiment
Why pay tax and his up keep
Yes I mean let's keep them in luxury while others sleep on the streets. Don't dislike them but in this day & Age just not right. :( i think Harry's new wife loves the luxury life. Designer dresses...etc. I do find Kate quite sexy though...:p
