Do you reckon Hanners will be a D-day lander or a dambuster?

suspect my "knows german" heavily skewed it

also

there was no "given an available orifice would you have sechs with a dreadnought" which I fell would have steered me to my true calling of Battlecruiser Squadron Commodore

Land Girl for me, despite answering negatively to all the agriculture questions

I suppose if I am a coward, hate violence and blood and am not bright enough to codebreak there was fvck all else for women to.

Heh @ q26 though

i tried again and definitely, definitely said i was a man. It made me a land girl again.

i am absolutely outraged that the test assumes all gutless cowards must be female

You would have been on the front lines, personally fighting the Axis powers as you stormed the beaches of Normandy. The opportunity to literally punch Nazis in the face may very well have come your way. However, the far more memorable experience would doubtless be seeing the relief in the eyes of the liberated civilian populace - and of course, being the first on the scene at the concentration camps, where soldiers freed the survivors in time for many to tell their all-important story to the world.

Land girl for me too.
I answered the victory garden question - we'd have a massive veg plot (or whatever the response was), but there is no way that I would do any of the work on it...

Same as Heff, and I said "OK" at Maths and only interested in punching Nazis in the face in a virtual sense.

I did, however, say I could understand strategy, pass a physical after four weeks, take orders and would kill for my country if required.

!Threepwood, without you men and Heffa these people would be toast.

We live in a world that has wars, and those wars have to be fought by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? UPee? *Snowflake*? We have a greater responsibility than they can possibly fathom. They weep for lost referendums, and you curse the peope. They have that luxury. They have the luxury of not knowing what you, Heff and I know -- that our existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to them, saves lives.

I'd like to think i'd have been made a CBE "for services to the war effort" and never actually been able to tell anyone the nature of those services.

Not that war, but I went down the pub with my brother, who is pretty tough looking, one time in Yorkshire and one of the old locals said 'Were thy in Falklands lads?, have a pint.'

I trust he responded with the truth: "nah mate. just done a 10 year stretch for kiddy fiddling. The only way to survive inside when you're banged up for that is to become hard as nails. Yeah, I will have that pint, thanks."

24c, the brigade liaison officer there was a family friend when i was a kid.

I'm pretty sure he didn't look like Chambo's brother.




(i have no idea what a brigade liaison officer does. but i'm guessing he wasn't just making sandwiches)

Nether of us were in the military, just big and a little rough looking through years of playing competitive sports. We were unlikely to get mugged on the way home Rufus. You are becoming a little bit annoying by the way.

I feel like that's a comment in a school report along the lines of "Rufus is making good progress, but is not yet reaching his full potential..."

Fwiw, my father was in counter intelligence and always said he was selected on basis of modern languages only. ( and then they sent him to Palestine to pretend to be an Arab lol)
