I couldn't identify them, I was 3 sheets to the wind! It was 10 years before I met the trouble and strife!

Thankfully my back wasn't broken just badly bruised vertebrae. Being young at the time I just brushed it off and took pain killers when my back hurt. My uncle Charlie who was in North Africa with the 8th Army with the LRDG in later life had to wear a steel corset.

Military service does have its price, but I'd still do it if I could.

When I broke my arm in 1978 I was on exercise in Germany, I ended up in the British Military Hospital in Hannover. I was well chuffed, the rest of the Squadron were up to their eyes in mud while I had a nice comfy bed, clean sheets and nurses bringing me breakfast, lunch and dinner in bed. lol

You do realise that stating something has deteriorated through abuse in Britain can have a completely different meaning[emoji13][emoji13][emoji13]
Only young men harm themselves by abusing their bodies, the rest of us have a wife to do it instead or in some cases they pay for it[emoji13][emoji16]

Erm, at the time I was a part time weekend warrior pongo.

It needed an ex RAF bloke to show the pongo's how its done.

In the ward I was in they brought in a Red Cap with a broken leg, he was whimpering and wailing like a little girl, he ended up with a number of bed pans being thrown at him. Then a nurse noticed his toes were going blue, they had put the plaster cast on too tight cutting off the blood supply. As they cut the plaster cast off he was still wailing and whimpering, when he returned to the ward he was not a happy chappy. I did chuckle

I broke and dislocated my finger a couple of years back. Cracked my head open many a time as a child - whether running in the streets, falling over and WHAM onto the concrete. Or, famously roller-blading indoors and WHAM, head first onto the corner of the stone hearth...

Dad got done for speeding on the way to the hospital. Copper let us go (what a nice man!)

Aside from that, I am thankfully very healthy!

What? How to avoid hard work and how to fill in hotel booking in forms. Not much need for that in the army.
