Shelldrake,

You're not serious, are you?  You must be pulling our leg.  George Michael would only have served if he could have been the Permanent Latrine Orderly, knowing as much about public men's rooms as he does.  And Tonioli?  Even George Michael calls him a f@g.

I did hea affraid r a rumour in the 1970s, possibly heard this when pissed, that the Duke of Westminster, as a lad was serving in the R Sigs as a Siggie....? Perhaps I am wrong?

You are wrong.

He joined the Territorial Army in 1970 as a trooper. In 1973 he entered Sandhurst

No troopers in sigs.
