The bootneck/army thing!

How many other bootneck get asked "How long have you been in the army"or similar questions, because it grips the sh*t of all the lads i've ever know in the corps?
 
Dont know about the Corps mate, but I know RMR blokes are constantly subjected to "So, how long have you been in the TA"

Cue red mist...... :evil:
 
Dont see why Sadman the RM Band being the finest military band bar none, the Booties dont like being asked what instrument they play, if in doubt, ask a Bootie.

Not sure about that but was wondering how many instruments you can play on average? :roll: :wink:

You always get at least one knobber putting there bit in on posts! Silverfox is a perfect example. :!: :oops:

bootneck-matelot-matelot-bootneck, never the twain etc.

at least we had a good birthday party on the 28th (since 1664 it gets better every year)
and Mr S_ Fox I know you have an aversion to him but Gary Glitter was requested and played-even had one bootie dress up as him-said he was going for a chinese. (aw, he's just misunderstood!) :D

The next bloke that ask's me how life is in the army or if i'm in the f"cking army is going to get a slap i'm threaders with it,civvies don't know that bootnecks are in the navy and proud of the fact,c"nts. :roll:
 
I've lost track of the number of times you see servicemen on the news and the newsreader always refers to them as "soldiers" despite their clearly being marines/sailors/airmen. Op Fresco was the most consistently bad example. "Army on Call to Battle Fires" blares the headline, vidclip/picture shows a Chief Stoker and 5 sailors manhandling hoses around a Green Goddess.

*Sigh*

The photograph you have in your profile is Yankee Company 45 Commando during the Falklands War. If I had a quid for every person who asked me if I was in the Army during my service I'd be mega rich!!
