Sorry, I've been abusing Naval War Hero by....

If his body has been through the military mill many years ago, make it a gentle mission, you would not want the dilemma of breaking him, any more than he already is.
Like the cut of ur jib Sumo can be very easy to denigrate an individual reading thru his posts an element of truth perhaps but after all is he causing harm guess not.

Now i feel a mild moral dilemma here. Having established comms and ascertained that he knew my uncle pete in the same unit, do i use this as a chance to talk about the excellent mental health support offered to Pete pver the years by charities, or do i instead mention my level of security clearance and order him off on a secret mission for a grateful nation?
The city of Kobane needs him right now.

I think maybe leave the poor fcuker alone after all who's he hurting ref 148 he's obviously in the know. PT it's a myth regarding mental health support.

I'm forming the opinion that the guy may be a short timer, hence a Service number that supports him joining at 16. Didn't serve long enough to realise the D was the first letter of every post 1960s ( ish) rating. His terminology is to the Navy as Klingon is to porn.

I'm guessing unhappy junior, didn't finish Part 1. Now he's imagining how it might have been. Most bullshitters would have given up. This guy isn't well and perhaps is not a suitable plaything here or on ARRSE.

I've found in my experience that the less time people served ( stand fast those with the scars ) the more likely they are to sprinkle their conversation with an approximation of military/naval language. It makes them indistinguishable from warry Gamers.

I had to grip a particularly annoying officer who kept on talking on the main broadcast about x 'Mikes'. Apparently it came from some US TV military drama of A Team accuracy where minutes are referred to as 'Mikes'. Fortunately he had to deal in nautical miles and cables so I was spared 'klicks'. The muppet.

Just ignore the lying twat, then perhaps he'll crawl back into his rat hole until he dreams up another load of old bollocks.

It's always nice when somebody walts up as a matelot. It suggests 2 things:

1. Someone knows who we are.
2. Someone rates us highly enough to want to pretend to be one of us.

For God's sake don't walt-hunt him down as I reckon he's about 50% of the current 'RN in public eye' profile.

I've been pretending to be a matelot for nigh on 15 years, I've been getting away with it too. Kind of.

As an aside, at a soiree on saturday I bumped into a guy who claimed to have just left the Royal Green Jackets earlier in the year. I asked him if he meant the Rifles and he said "No, the RGJ. You know, like Sharpe". Walts man, they're everywhere.
