    I can confirm that one such wombat shell continued to exist in the guard room Whittington Barracks Lichfield, which was phase 1 Infantry training for the POW division and Phase 1 Paras. It was........... an emotional experience. To say the least. -vomit--vomit--vomit-

    When you match someone on Bumble and they actually start a conversation.

    Moving house soon, found out there's a fully equipped, old school gym just round the corner, weights, bars, boxing equipment, the lot.
    £180 a year.

    You have no idea how excited I am

    I am amazed at how stupid people are.

    In light of the Cambridge Analytica and Facebook crap, people on twitter have called for a hashtag delete Facebook.

    So they are against one social media site that gathers data on them, and they are protesting by using another social media site that gathers data on them.

    Can you smell the irony?



    Come on RM recruitment, delete your god awful twitter account. It’s embarrasing.

    Facebook died a long time ago. Its only functional use now is groups, events and for your middle aged aunt or my mum to post minions memes.

    Instagram an twitter are taking over the social media game.

    Give it a few years and facebook will be facing the same fate as myspace and twitter/insta will be in the spotlight for the same issue

    Is that taken from Heron Pike/Glenridding Dodd looking towards ullswater?
    Looks like a nice walk either way.

    I took it from Barf Fell looking over Bassenthwaite to Skiddaw and Keswick, just looks a bit stretched because I took a panoramic. Decent short walk, it was wet and windy.

    New RM advert! Not my favourite ever but certainly leagues better than the ‘this is belonging’ thing the army has.

    @Ninja_Stoker out of interest, do you have any info on how the army recruitment campaign is being received by the people. Clearly unpopular on this forum, but perhaps we aren’t the target audience.

    When the chain of command have to release statements warning lads of talking out against it or threaten disciplinary action, you know something is unpopular.

    Just like the Next clothing fiasco or when the all the lads got told in a clear lower to “shut up and put up” because women are Definately coming and to “get on with it”, and now with these embarrassingly cringey adverts that cost a fortune and still see recruitment and retention fall.

    It’s not the adverts we need to worry about, it’s the leadership, or lack of it.
