He deserved it, but they pinned it on the wrong end, should have pinned it on his arse. After all he had shit for brains and living with what he did to innocent peeps meant he was a big brave man.

He was due to become Queen of England and his tits were big enough, alas he could not bear being so close to the Jocks, bloody coward.

At the last place I worked before retirement we had a real Walter Mitty. When he first joined us he was ex RCT. Then he became a generals driver, then somehow metamorphised into a Para, served in the Falklands, became a Para territorial who trained the ACF, developed a thousand yard stare and to top it all came out with this gem.

Me, "Do you belong to forces reunited or the BAOR forum?"

Him, "What are they then?"

Me, "Where you can keep in touch with like minded Army lads."

Him, "Nah, I only keep in touch with my Marine mates."

Me, speechless.

Apart from that he is a really nice chap but he does have this huge made up life. He is constantly on the alert and wound up.

When we first met him and he came out with all the Para stuff a mate of mine, ex RTC, said he would have liked to see his parachute, when asked why he said that it must have been huge to carry him and a 3 tonner.
