    Black- Cat warning Red, raid inbound....

    The Army chappies (bless) up until 12 months ago, used to proudly put-up a 3 mtr X 2 mtr back-drop at tri-service careers conventions with the words "Be the Best" emblazoned across the "desert - stormy" picture.

    The huge picture was of an open-top Land-Rover with 4 heavily armed guys dressed in desert issue CS95 sat within, tooled-up. In the background was a Chinook about 5 metres above & behind and a huge dusty, backlit hazy cloud around the edges.

    The occupants of the Land Rover all had Royal Marine Commando shoulder flashes and unless I'm mistaken the helicopter was driven by one of those civilians in uniform (but not at Wittering) RAF chappies.

    Not just an ordinary cock-up, but one of M&S proportions.

  7. They made a similar cock-up with the MoD in house magazine in the 90s when I was in London. They showed an SSN on the roof, along with a Tornado and a tank making a big splash in a big puddle, to emphasise the tri Service ethos. I phoned the editor, and told him it was a lovely photo, but it wasn't a British SSN,
    "What makes you say that ?"
    "British SSNs don'have their fore planes on the fin, and the Stars and Stripes is a bit of a give away, isn't it ?"
    I heard him say "Oh shit" before I hung up and went to the pub.
