The sign behind says it all
Daughter 1 was doing survival training yesterday and came home with a box of rations which I read before throwing out.
How thick are squaddies
There are thick squaddies, mostly those who have to stick their head up on the frontline. Who else would do it ? Yes, they do need telling everything but you can't have army gear that is separated into thickies and non thickies.
As an ex Royal Engineer, non thicky types, I feel somewhat insulted.
As to C4, it does smell of marzipan. The thickies used to shit themselves when we used it for cooking when we ran out of hexamine blocks. I liked blowing things up with it. Give me some with det cord and a detonator and I'll show what one stick can do. Fun.
