Was I ever that Young (& good looking)
With all that is going on in the world, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Pirates and the plonkers who are destroying London. I almost missed my 51st anniversary. Yup I guess I am now a senior he he .
51 Years ago I signed on the dotted line, swore my allegience to Queen and Country. Then I was sworn in as SB182632 Pte(A) McRobb.
Over 1/2 a century later friendships made in thos days still flourish.
The military is at heart one big family. Never in my life thus far have I ever been far from my military roots.
I say to the young soldiers,sailors and airmen of todays forces hang in there. The friends you make now are friends for life. Just think some of you older readers how many school friends are you actually in touch with, the veterans know that they have a long list of Military friends.
