    @boogey96 I suspect you're onto something. Every generation before was harder.

    The old adage rings true though;

    Hard times make hard men, who make good times, which makes soft men, who make hard times, and so goes the circle.

    Have to say, in my 3 years on this forum, this by far one of the most interesting and valuable threads on here, really want to say thanks to the trained ranks who are coming here to pass on their views and takes.

    I'd have to agree, with the type of lad coming through now, but also, like everyone says, it's a generational thing that I'm sure everyone before us said the same thing.

    Lads are both more switched on...but also a bit more dense in other areas. I like that lads are far less likely to take the shizzle that we did a few years ago, and will pipe up more if they think stuff is wrong, however, they also often don't provide constructive drips and also forget they're in the forces, not a civi job.

    The Corps is shaping up to be a pretty exciting place in the next few years in my opinion and I'm looking forward to FCF starting to come in.

    I was a bit gutted that it was just an advert at the end of the countdown

    Good demonstration of 'speed of a thousand gazelles' shown by the Commandos in the video.
