Interesting, thanks for sharing.
I had a mate who left after the Faulklands, he was in the paras. He quit because he couldn't face going back to normal duty after all the excitement, he also said he made a big mistake.

Nice pics Joey, I wouldn't do convoy top cover for all the tea in China... Flying over it's okay, driving through it is another matter. Did you get any contacts?

Compared to many US pics, I love the way the typical UK lad comes outs. The shagging whilst on watch is a classic \:D
