    Cool Off to snowy Canada

    I'm off today to snowy Canada and I won't be back until the 16th December.

    I'd like to wish everyone all the best especially those standing for election in the forthcoming GAGB elections. I hope the new committee is as dedicated as the current one who have done an excellent job.

    I will try and check up on things in here if they have t'internet over there

    Goodluck to everyone and play safe in here...

    :cheers:

    You've probably already gone but hopefully you'll get this at some point.

    Have a safe one and don't upset too many canadians.

    Ian, I missed this thread, probably because I'd been offline for some days due to illness. Thanks for all your hard work, and we'll hope to hear from you when you get back from those snowy wastes, if not before! :cheers:

    I can confirm that the hang overs are still legendary :cheers: and that the Gag n Puke stil is.......:wacko:

    For the uninitiated the Gag n Puke is a small burger bar/cafe on camp over here. Squaddies think up the nicest of names for things.

    Thumbs up

    For anyone remotely interested here is a clip on youtube that shows you what the British Army does over here in Canada at BATUS (British Army Training Unit Suffied). It is a training area big enough to swallow up every other training area we have in the world and its the only place you can train a Battle Group using live ammunition and everything from the Infantry to Artillery, tanks and air support.

    I hope someone finds it enlightening.
