In this Sunday's Parade Magazine there is a story about an Army SSG who has 19 Ribbons with the highest being an Army Commendation Medal.
What in the hell, they must be giving Medals for Brushing your teeth!

I felt like a fraud on our Remembrance parade stood there with my solitary Northern Ireland medal, whilst the young lads had a chest full of gongs. It was very humbling.

Weapons intelligence? Thats an oxymoron if I've ever heard one.

I was 2 and 1/2 years in the Far East, the poor buggers when I left got their tour lengthened to 3 years

Basically, we were a plain clothes int unit that assisted RUC CID at terrorist incidents, very interesting indeed.

Its pointless putting a pongo in plain clothes, their haircut gives the game away.

I was in a pub years ago when a young fella walked in wearing civi's, I took one look at him and he was obviously serving, so I bought him a pint. He asked how I knew he was a serving pongo.

You couldn't tell I was military with my long hair and beard.

I'd only have to sniff and tell you were a pongo, like I can smell Old Bill from miles away.

Living like a terrorist, you couldn't tell I was old bill, I was non recognisable, even to the point of going home on leave - my parents didn't recognise me.
