Every person who joins the armed forces should have pride in their unit/ship/regiment or squadron that they served in. Its called PRIDE and that's what makes the British Forces some of the very best in the world.
When I joined the Corps and doing my seamanship training on the Vanguard (the last floating battleship in the RN, that was for you youngsters) :wink:
We used to row up the Fareham Creek which was full of mothballed ships. If some baa-lamb started a war would have been blown to smithereens. Now we have to rely on civvy ships to transport us :!:
But as I get older I become more Corps pissed. I am very proud of serving the mob that is the best trained in the world The yanks go in mobhanded we go in using our brains. In 1961 while I was on the Victorious we sailed from Hong Kong to the Persian Gulf to stop the Iraq'is from invading Kuwait. The Iraqi's changed their minds when we got there :twisted: By the way I believe there were a few other Marines there with a Pongo :twisted:
GO THE ROYALS :!: :!: :!:
