    Ooh, really? Never saw what happened to the shot after encouraging it to leave from the business end of the SLR.

    Anyway the bullet is a red herring.

    No Naval GSM
    Two fake medals
    No DSM issued to anyone with his name since WW2

    Do I have to rip apart the whole Vietnam story or shall we just take it as a given that's bullshit?

    The bullet looks like that of a 7.62x54R. Used in Soviet weapon systems. Interesting that at least he's accurate if he is a Walt.

    Blobs you're right. That round has not been subjected to any speed. Me thinks he bought it from some shit war games shop. WALT, WALT, WALT.

    I didn't attend his funeral but wrote a nice letter saying I approved of it.

    Good to see Dickie Peake and Sid Seabrook on that list. Not too many triangle players on there.

    Always makes me chuckle when I see my old Chief stoker off Argonaut on the DSM list - whenever we collectively did anything a bit risky he would always chirp-up with: "Best I get an 'effing medal for this". The bugger did too.

    I was wondering earlier whether going through security at an airport would be problematic if you had a bullet in your groin. Would it be picked up?
