BFBS: "Gethin Jones Plans New Career In Forces"

To be honest, whichever service he joins (if any) it'll be a much needed shot in the arm to promote the Armed Forces, particularly the Reserves.

If the RNR are on the ball, they'll be offering him a "golden hello" as we speak - even if it's just an honourary post.

As opposed to a golden rivet then?
I`ve no doubt he will appeal equally to those who appreciate the male form, whatever their gender. That said as a heterosexual, I`ve never previously felt the need to proclaim my preference, darling.:wink:

Who? I know I live out in the sticks but who is he? Should I be interested? Should I care?

I've heard of Gethin Jenkins, a moderately good rugby player from a moderate principality; but not this Jones person.

In all seriousness. Mega stacks rating if he does join up.

Well, he's not far off being 'lidded' and can fly:

...His time on Blue Peter [2004-2008] saw him take on the most extreme, wonderful, scary and strangest challenges of his life [...] but his biggest moment was when he became the first civilian (and Blue Peter presenter) to finish the Royal Marine Commando 30 mile Yomp - he finished in a time of 8hrs 20mins… in about 7 pieces!

...whilst on Uned 5 [S4C youth magazine show, 2002-2004], he obtained a Private Pilots’ Licence as part of a filming challenge lasting over 8 months.

Gethin's in the papers again and mentioning his interest in becoming a Reservist.

Gethin Jones back on Army duty | Evening Times

He says:

"I have been looking into becoming a reservist. I have this connection with the way they do their business. It is very disciplined and I like that, so I am looking to see if there is anything I can do to help. Nothing to report yet but I am looking into it."

Some needs to be helping Gethin look in the right direction .....

Agreed, but that would need someone dynamic high-up in RNR or RMR Recruitment seizing the initiative.

Ain't never gonna happen, initiative is an alien concept.
