"Black as hell and thick as grass" A touch of rascism and a comment on brain power !
Has to be worth some cash, must have a chat with a couple of Zulus I know, class action here we come.

Cheers

Quite right too......

My late dad, used to stop his Army ambulance and nick water melons on his way up the Canal Road in Suez......did he care about the potential financial hardship to 'Abdullah' (name changed to protect the innocent) and his family........did he consider about how much work 'Nasser' (name changed to protect 'Abdullah') shifting water from the Sweet Water Canal, in a leaky bucket, to have his prize melon whipped by some scrawny knock kneed, squaddie..........

hay ho.......then they wonder why its hard to recruit into the armed forces.......

I sent this to my brother in the UK. What I got back was " Bugger remember that Goat we hit in the Ferret ( an armoured scout car ) in Aden? Tasted good in the curry but if we get nicked Im blaming you"
So much for filial loyalty.

With confessions like this it may be time for another 'Truth and Reconciliation Commission' in order to give the sinners an opportunity to confess and then be exonerated. This would put a spanner in the works of the termites who get their kicks from white-anting British ex-servicemen.

Its a pity you clarified what a 'Ferret' is.......

I'm sorry Frank but the idea of 2 squaddies hitting a goat with a ferret....conjures up some right funny images.....I spose that's why 'northerners' keep ferrets down their trousers, so they can whip them out and club goats with them......
