I would have been happy with some Subby shaking my hand and saying thanks for the 12 years you have given us instead of Jenny chopping my ID Card in half and showing me the door out onto Queen Street, Pompey.

Ahaha, only in japan....i have to admit, i would be quite satisfied going one on one with WO1 DO's from colingrad, and maybe even the CHOPS from lancaster....but im the first to admit id've given up once it came to the men with the extreme hair gel fanatics, known as the pusser PTI!

The hardest part of discharge from Guzz used to be getting your card stamped for handing your AGR in. This was due to the i/c Civvy taking a 2 hour lunch daily.
