Actually - NO! Please be kind enough never to put words in my mouth. I paraphrased what I had seen in official documents and an 'in-house'
if you are goint to rant and rave , please have the decency to accuse me of something i actually did .
i NEVER put words into your mouth , please read what i wrote again , with more care this time
hint - " i presume " is the key snippet -- yup -- i made an assumption , based on prior experience that the MOD website and soldier mag are often
almost indistiguishable in content
if you want to berate me for that -- fine . Mea culpa , its a generalisation -- but mostly true --
finally as this is an international online forum , alluding to the official documents that you have almost UNIQUE acces to [ out of the ATS
membership ] and print articiles in a MOD in house mag [ yes i know civilians can subscibe to it , but how many ACUTALLY do , and how many libraries
actually carry it ??? -- just because you have a subs , and probally have free coppies avauilable in your mess too , dont expect every one else to
have acess to a special interest publication with very low circulation [ outside UK armed forces ]
The article in 'Soldier' Magazine, is a much watered down version and does contain three errors.
I will leave that up to you to discover them.
dont hold your breath
, now you have stated that the soldier aerticle contains LESS info than the MOD website i cited , AND contains errors ???
-- why should i or any one else make any attempt to locate a copy ??
if we are to discuss this issue on ATS -- it would be best to use the facts on the ATS web site - as EVERYONE here can read it with a click of the
unless you want to put forward a more imformative online resource ??
are we going to discuss the actual unit rationally , or play silly buggers ??
