    A Royal Marine is sitting in a pub and leans over to the guy next to him and says, "*text deleted* hear a Para joke"?

    The guy next to him replies, "before you tell that joke, you should know something I'm 6ft tall, and 200 lbs, and I'm a Para"

    "The guy sitting next to me is 6'2", weighs 225 lbs and he's a Para. The fella next to him is 6'5", weighs 250 lbs and he's also a Para. Now, do you still want to tell that joke?"

    o_O


    :confused:



    :(


    :eek:


    ;)



    The Marine raises one eyebrow, rolls up his sleeves and says ... "Nah, not really, I just don't want to have to explain it three times.":):)

    The fella front and centre is in dangerous waters with that salute, particularly with his cap obscured on screen!

    More like that they left because they had to stay in 3 star hotels instead of 4 star, when they're away!

    Seems odd they were not aware of it before joining. One thing you do see is people looking for multiple reasons to justify their decision to quit & my guess is that reason would've been one of many.

    On the other hand I genuinely think people don't join because of unjustifiable, archaic rules. I'm a firm believer that someone with facial tattoos can still do their job just as well as anyone else and similarly male & female hair regulations need to be identical if we want to claim we're an equal ops employer.

    The Royals pull anything out of the dressing up box.
    Precedent was cited in the late 1970s when DPM para smocks replaced the Denison smocks. After initial enthusiasm for the new kit, many Parachute Regiment ranks reverted to wearing the obsolete Denison smock causing predictable rage in those responsible for enforcing dress regulations. When HRH Prince Charles was appointed Colonel-in-Chief of the Parachute Regiment he insisted on wearing the old Denison smock. :)

    Reminds me of a dit when Prince Charles was CO of HMS Bronington, a minesweeper, many moons ago.

    A young AB went to the Commanding Officers table (formal military board held onboard) with a grievance. Charles gave his judgement, but the lad still wasn't happy and said "I want to take it further, Sir"

    Charles allegedly replied, "I'm a Prince, qualified for King, how far do you want to take it?".

    This young lady has just posted this on FB after finishing her degree in Plymouth. What I found particularly amusing was her comments about RMs. Good to hear that Royal can still leave his mark.
