Thanks for the good wishes everyone

Memo to self - never travel on anything that risks being hauled by a Frightliner loco (fortunately I don't think they do much if any passenger hauled at the moment!)!!!

Cheers for the vote of confidence there Mike  :laughabovepost: we operate more than you realise it's unavoidable!

Very best wishes on Civvy Street, Gareth.

I discovered that there are certain things that were acceptable in the squadron tea bar tend to be frowned upon in civvy street  ::)


Yet you still have some dubious activities :P

Best of luck  for the future in civvy street.
Things I missed when I left the mob (ex crab)
The camaraderie, your work mates were your actual mates.
Disciplin, and self disciplin, or lack of.  Some people seem to do what they want whenever they want.
The Sergeant's Mess, nuf said.

Things I didn't miss.
The Bullsh**
Not having to say "Sir" or "Ma'am" to someone young enough to be my child.

Not get that layout started, that's an order :D
Cheers, Trev.

Well On my last day in camp I did have the pleasure of walking past certain personalities (The types that think they are the best things on earth) and when they were expecting me to do the "yes sir" "no sir" stuff the answer they got was you can call me Mr!  :D

The layout is kind of started but still lots to do but its a work in very slow progress!

Hi All,

Well this week I have made the choice and handed in my years notice by this time next your i will no longer be in the armed forces.
By the time I leave I will have done 16 years in the Army but due to numerous reasons I feel that it is high time to move on in life and put my family and myself first.

So the count down has began 360 days remaining until I am officially no longer a serving member, with that time to get all my qualifications converted into civilian ones and begin the great job hunt!

Congratulations Gareth and thank you for your service, helping to keep us all safe.  You deserve all the help and support the army can offer and I wish you every success and happiness in civi street.

Kind regards

Paddy
