To all the brave recruiters on this site -- be safe.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Remember, opening mail is what the loan junior rates are for. No need to take too much risk.

Not all of this post is meant to be taken seriously.

Funnily enough, since this started earlier in the week, our mail has been put in a separate room for checking, before collection.

I sent down our young Leader to collect it & she came back with a right strop: "You didn't tell me people had been sending us bombs!" she said indignantly. "You never asked" was the reply. ^~

No sense of humour.

Weird isn't it?

My Dad said to me in 1981: "Don't join the Army, you'll only get blown-up in Ireland".

So I joined to Navy and seven weeks after joining my first ship, got blown-up in the Falklands. Next ship, back to back Falklands deployments with Sam Salt. Next ship Iran/Iraq war. Finally sweepers, "Ha, only UK & Northern Europe" Wrong, Gulf War One. Next ship Adriatic/Bosnia. Next, diddly squat then finally, the AFCO. "Safe as houses".

Maybe a name change to Uncle Albert?

They're trying to tell you something, oh and that box I sent you is a birthday cake, hence the marzipan smell. It's safe to open, honest!

Not able to discuss the mechanics or lethal potential of the devices for obvious reasons but effectively, they are viable.

Doubtless some chimp on a forum, not a million miles away will post the photos, target, shortcomings and give advice on how to do it better.

Some people have all the luck. Ever bought a lottery ticket? If you fell in a bucket of tits, you'd come out sucking your thumb...

Obviously not writing "Nursing School, Narvik" on the return label was a mistake.

Also addressing them "Filthy Brit Scum, C/O AFCO, Scum UK" didn't help.

Please, for the love of Pussers tell me this hasn't already happened.

Ninj, Im sure you know the procedure on finding a live IED.

Jump 200ft in the air and spread yourself over a very wide area.....

On the clip I saw on the news last night ... shot of an RN BD Team tipping up and unloading the kit before wandering off in the general direction of the AFCO with a fire extinguisher!
