That's Falklands,
not meaning to pick up on spelling,
but if he's asked to write it down somewhere he might get a bollocking for spelling it wrong.

Guys I'm not 100% sure but I don't think it is Al Fawr, it's more likey to be Belle Isle. It goes down to the definition of Battle Honour and Memorable Date if even that.

Leave it with me and I'll check it out for definite.

I have asked a mate who has just passed his interview and he is going for officer.

He said that he answered with Al Fawr Peninsular Iraq, (pronounced Al Four) which was replied with "right, ok"

Now that wasn't a "yes Mr Hooper that is the correct answer well done" but it sounds like he got it right to me......? And he did pass. But then you wouldn't fail on one wrong answer.

Did a search and you never posted it, as you probably know as you have been here a while, abuse of the Army guys doesn't go down particually well on here. So I was surprised when I read it, but not sure where he got that from or link it to your name.

Yea I generally try not to publicly, unless subliminally, abuse anyone/anything on here

(apart from rusty, but I vote that that should be acceptable anyway)

for fear of someone (notice I haven't said Greywing) stretching their 'Bannned for a day' muscles.

*text deleted*, Rusty is fine. I don't have any muscles anyway now, I'm a right fat blob now. Just got back from the pizza hut, and Ninja is the head honcho on here, can't ban anyone if I wanted too.:flushed:

Ah thats nice to know, how much abuse will you tolerate before telling on me!?

I had pizza re-heated from last night for my lunch. It's always better in the microwave the next day, it goes all wet and soggy like Seedy's mum's, woah there are children on this site.
