In the many dealings I had with the Army while I was serving, there really did seem to be a common theme, touched upon by Tim. That was they are totally dependent on the NCO to just about everything, this is where the fuckin' the troops over comes in to play. It always seemed to be completly discouraged for your average pongo to actually think for themselves and take the initiative and blindly follow the Army Diktat that is churned out.
Example, While in the FI, two of us were seconded to the coldstream guards, much to their amusement of having a couple of blue jobs on board and took part in a live firning exercise. On the final assult they lobbed in a couple of L2's and only one went off, they just got up and charged firing for their lives into the trench the contained the live L2. We both stayed put getting an earful from the SNCO until we pointed this out and they then all got a bollocking

Also in the FI, a chopper landed in the site at Sapper Hill with a 3 star plate and out pops Peter De Billiere to check on the troops, he had just left the RA rapier units at San Carlos and told us they were living in squalor compared to us, but only because each sqn had stripped Stanley of any item not nailed down. My claim to fame was borrowing a full artificial cricket wicket, that had only been in the island 5 hours. Chopped up and shipped out to the sites for carpeting with assistance from the sea king aircrew

Overall my own opinion will always be that the Average Rock will always be somewhat brighter, adaptable and down right sneakier than your average pongo.

They don't appear to like anyone at all, ever - apart from themselves.
How to win friends and influence people, RAF Regt style:-

I made a decision some time ago to stay out of Arsse. I simply don't have enough time in my life to spend it reading the purile nonsense that is spouted on that site by walts who have never done anything, been anywhere, seen anything or have more than two (obviously damaged) neurons bashing around inside there thick heads.

Leave them be and let them engage in their Boys Own fantasies about what they wish they had done but have only ever read about in the Beano and the Dandy.

Meanwhile over on ARRSE, they were having a little dig back at them.

As spotted by one with two (obviously damaged) neurons.

He makes a fair point about fantasies though.. My favourite character in Warlord was "Iron Nuts" McKenzie, the dashing RAF chap who guarded the permiter fence with vigilance, could spot a forged ID at twenty paces and stopped, on more than one occasion, the stealing of aviation fuel for black market purposes. Sadly i was unable to join the ranks of this elite and had to make do with the army, doing shit things like being on the front line in a tank. I fear i have failed in life.

And so, having waited the requisite time for someone else to do it, I have now decided to roll out the old classic in response . . .
