To be honest mate, I had a job to pick you out from the Smerfs.

We any further forward with a venue for the meet on the 4th August?

Janner, not that I'm aware of for 4th, I thought the choice of Crownhill RBL or the Weston Mill social centre were the choices Weston Mill is probably easier if the social club is staying open as you'll already be there.

I'd go for the weston mill social centre, its got disabled access and the music isnt too loud.

This is a worry as I thought you were ringing up to check. We are at the Quality Hotel this year which I think is somewhere near the Hoe end. Weston Mill is OK prices are good beer wise and providing they have no objections shall we make it there? We will have to go out and find somewhere to eat early on. If you could contact Weston Mill and confirm I'll start an RR reunion thread

If a Reservist wears their uniform to work today, will they get a medal for it?

I'm sure some will give that suggestion more though than is actually necessary... :oops:

No more medals pleeeease!

It cost me a bloody fortune getting them mounted and re-mounted everytime. Especially since I have three sets, one for my PJ's, one for my gimp suit and the other for my one's - not that I wear the latter that often.

I also sound like a bloody sheepdog when I walk down to the shop for a paper with em pinned to my tracksuit.:laughing5:

Admirable though the campaign is (and I accept that many Reservists don't wear their kit as often as full-time Service personnel) but the standards of dress and bearing of some of those in the photos is shocking! Admittedly the SCC don't award as many medals, but at least they can turn out with a bit more 'spit & polish' than some of our photogenic colleagues..! :shock:

Go on, I'll bite.

Having googled the internet for all of three seconds I managed to find several photos of full timers looking less than perfect in several different rigs. I thought about posting a few examples but they're there for all to see of anyone really cares.

sgtpepperband, I don't see anything drastically wrong with the people in the photos. They may have falen out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down but all this "let's find another way to criticise the RNR" is getting sooooo boring.
Have a day off. Go and pick some flowers and imagine how boring life would be if we were all as perfect as you. You'd have nothing to do all day.

This may be true as my work software security features will not allow me to see Phot's so they must be ugly? or it's worried they may infect my computer?
