This should really be in CA..... but it will be much more fun in Lil's! RAF fatties ordered to lose their excess cargo | The Sunday Times As an aside I have a mate, no an acquaintance, no a friend of my wife's husband who was in the RAF. He is a tad podgy and was while serving. He was dragged out of his comfy UK office kicking and screaming and sent to Iraq in a management job, him being a Sgt. Lasted a few weeks before being CASEVACd home. Not shot. Not blown up. In fact not actually injured. It was just that due to his weight his blood pressure went up to something like 220! RAF - gotta love 'em!
