I think that might be what Cuts was getting at, along with questions about which weapon was best being rather pointless as nothing wins hands down in all circumstances.

Irritation with some empty "what was best" questions led me to start the "Who had the most powerful underpants in WWII?" thread http://ww2incolor.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7572

Initially I thought Cuts was heading in a related direction as I misread his thread title as "Best short arm of WWII". :D

(For the uninitiated, 'short arm' was a WWII term for the male generative organ, as in 'short arm inspection' where short arms are presented for inspection for signs of VD.)

I am a person with good sence of homour but there would be no humour with you, only disgust,.that is the way I deal with the people who feel comtemp for everybody.

Are you sure you and 1000yds stare are british army veterans ??

Is that the quality of person ? is that the character that let you that institution?

I have my serious doubts that you ever picked up something more dangerous than a glass beer bottle in your hands.

By the way your signature does not impress me ******, is just another confirmation ( if needed) of the you bad attitude and shitty messed up character.

Awwww !
How sweet, a tantrum ! :D
Do I hear the stamping of tiny feet ?


But please let me answer your post in it's constituent parts:


I am a person with good sence of homourYou may well be a person with a good sense of humour, I sincerely hope you are.
It would be most entertaining if you could share it with us.



but there would be no humour with you, only disgust,.Don't think I'll be losing much sleep over that. :)



that is the way I deal with the people who feel comtemp for everybody.You may deal with people however your brain tells you to young man, but to claim that I feel contempt for everybody is both inaccurate and stupid.



Are you sure you and 1000yds stare are british army veterans ??Yes.



Is that the quality of person ? Not precisely sure what you mean here, but if you are asking if we are representative of members of the British Army then perhaps so.
Some of the many qualities that tend often to show through with Brit squaddies of all ranks include:
- A sense of humour that is often self-deprecating.
- An ability to see the funny side of anything.
- An inability to suffer fools gladly.
- A dogged determination to follow things through to their natural conclusion.



is that the character that let you that institution?Not entirely sure what you mean by this comment either, but are you on day release from your institution ?



I have my serious doubts that you ever picked up something more dangerous than a glass beer bottle in your handsYour doubts or otherwise about the level of my skills are of singular unimportance to me, it should only be of your concern if you became a soldier

But...


like that could ever happen ! :lol: :lol: :lol:'




By the way your signature does not impress me, is just another confirmation ( if needed) of the you bad attitude and shitty messed up character.
Which part of my signature causes you so much distress ?
Please let me know, I'm all agog.




Signed off, with all the respect due to you,
Cuts.

Sorry Nick, you got beaten by the English language again! A Cigarette is always a "***", never a "******". A "******" is either a bundle of sticks tied up with string or a rather tasty form of meatball.

Every dam time I log off, and go home, there is always a cool Kat fight happening on this forum. I don't know if it's the time differrence or whatever, but when I am on, there is hardley any movement, except in the morning. For the consideration of those that work 9 to 5, if your gonna fight, could you at least fight when I am at work, so I can tune into the "Drama".Dag dam!:army:

If so I am surprized, honestly I believed the british army with such long tradition formed better kind of persons, but I guess assholes you can find in any army.

Rude ?

when you got a signature specifically designed to anoy other member you should not wait for any sweetness. For sure I will not dispplay any sweeteness.

The British Army, unlike the Argentinian one, was somewhat engaged in world shattering military activities during WWII over a good part of the planet while Argentina covertly supported the Nazis before duplicitously declaring war on them a couple of months before the end of the war when Argentina saw which way the wind was blowing.

It may be that the typical dogged and defiant British resolution in the face of overwhelming adversity, which Brits displayed long before and during WWII, forms the kind of persons they are and the kinds of persons their army produces.

If they're assholes, you won't find a better set of assholes on the planet.

Cuts's signature is humorous.

Yours is Nazi fascist and disturbingly serious, which might annoy those of us of a more liberal outlook. But we haven't complained about it, so you have no grounds to whinge about Cuts' signature.

How about displaying some Argentinian humour, so that the rest of us can judge the difference?

A "better kind of persons" would not have conquered a third of the globe. The British Army is many things, but "nice" is not one of them. It's why we're so good at what we do.

Personally I can say is true that hoops can be found in any army, but then I've actually served to be able to reach this conclusion.

You've still not told me which part of my signature it is that causes you such anxiety, please elaborate.

Despite your overt suggestion that you will not to show any sweetness, we've always thought you were a sweet little thing.
Misguided, but sweet.

It is perhaps not to the taste of everyone, but chacun à son goût as my Calvi mates say.


british humour suck, and you too.
I suppose I have done at times:
- on boilies when on stag in the cold.
- on a straw when in the West Country. ("Zippin' zoider through a straw" anyone ?)
- on a smoke after a successful Op. (Hey, 'sucking on a ***' - see what I did there ? :D )

Or perhaps you had something else in mind Panzerknacker ?
Have you been having more of your naughty fantasies about real soldiers again you little tinker ?

Do reply dear chap, your posts are so very entertaining.

Not nessesarily nazi or fascistm but is somewhat disturbing I know, if the Mods are annoyed by my signature I have no problem to change it.

You can call me the way you like, but my insults were not directed to you.

Oh, yea, sure, Firefly, we are very scared now. Give me a break man, the chap cant moderate, not even a kindergarten.

We're disturbed by it, not annoyed - it gets you a place on our list of dodgy characters, but no more than that. All it means is that you get a little less slack when you come out with dodgy suggestions or demand actions by the mods about another member.

His job isn't to moderate the place, but to keep an eye on the other mods and ensure this place doesn't turn in to either a kiddies playpen with trolls crayoning all over the walls or a fascist supersite with anyone deviating from the party line or not conforming to some kind of super-poster stereotype being banned. Given the quality of these forums, and the ongoing operational commitments which mean he can't devote much time to them, I'd say he's doing a stellar job.

And you (as in the "royal" you for the Brits) don't even have conscription...

That's true, in fact conscription is a relatively new idea for the Brits.

Feudalism and the later impressing aside, the Royal Navy and the British Army have existed as services that rely on people wanting to go to war. Tradition playing large part in the British psyche, some of this belligerence may well have been youngsters wanting to live up to their ancestors' deeds, to show they could, to win their spurs.

One of the reasons that Boney ran around with gay abandon for so long is that the British armies ranged against them tended on the whole to be smaller than his vast array of conscripts, of citizen soldiers.
Discipline was harsh in all walks of life back then and no less so than amongst the redcoats, but all discipline is self-discipline and when push comes to an enormous kick in the orbs this discipline and hard-won camaraderie works every time. The worse odds, the better.
Albuhera anyone ?

Back to forcing people into the armed services. Conscription first cropped up in Jan 1916 when there had been - and would continue to be - tremendous wastage of troops. Of lives if we're being less objective.
It underwent many changes in a short time and the upper age limit was eventually raised to fifty-one ! It should e noted that the majority of these older chaps tended not to be sent to front line units, their skills being more useful elsewhere although there are exceptions to prove the rule.
Conscription was brought to a close in Jun (?) 1919.

Until...
An uppity Austrian Cpl started making a bit of racket somewhere on what was referred to as 'the contynont.'
So about May of '39 young men were called up to do basic military trg, a National Service, which would be supplemented at a later date - should the need arise..
Oddly enough, before the first intake had finished their basics the need arose.
Three years later and conscription was back to the rules of the Great War with all men between eighteen and fifty-one being liable and, a fact that often slips people's minds, women between twenty and thirty.


Anyway, National Service ended at the end of 1960, bringing to a close a grand total of just under twenty-four years of compulsion. This meant that the Royal Navy and the British army could go back to their traditional rôle of being volunteer services.

Oh, and that other mob who wear blue Farah slacks, white socks and slip-on shoes.
What are they called again ?


I have my own opinions on the pros and cons of National Service, but I think I'll open a new thread for that.






ps.
Does anyone have any idea which part of my signature is causing our pal from the pamparse such an aneurysm ?
