Also he is one of the most decorated Warrent Officers with in the Royal Air Force, and one of the most respected. I have even heard Royal Mariens and Guards commenting on how they wouldnt want to piss him off.

    Aye,

    No one I know in the military has "personal" exemption for face fuzz. He must be very special.
    Hes not a pioneer, or naval so he has no historical reason for gluing a hamster to his face.

    looks like an idiot, and Im sure hes been told numerous times so I have no qualms with saying it either.

    Telling a WO on the parade ground what you think of his looks will work like a charm. Good idea, Mate!
    Being on the receiving end of what is to come won't be so jolly.
    Prob the rest of your squad/platoon will kick your head in afterwards also, because he will most likley make this a team event.
    Sometimes it is better to just keep ones mouth shut....

    Oh, and by the way, this guy is highly respected...where is your respect???

    So, I don't believe that too many junior ranks have told him so far.... prob none lived to tell the tale!

    But you wouldn't say it to his face, only when hiding behind your computer monitor. This RAF WO has a level of experience and respect that arrogant cretins like you can only dream of. You'd no more tell him you think he looks an idiot than you would say to GSM Mott regardless of your rank. Hard-ass Warrant Officers have junior officers for breakfast. I've seen an RAF Station Warrant Officer chew out a Wing Commander during a parade rehearsal and get away with it.

    There's nothing worse than a rather junior officer who thinks he knows it all - Bluffcove fits the bill.

    Grow up sonny.

    You really need to check your facts before posting, the Bloodhound/Thunderbird SAM systems went out of service a long time ago. The Thunderbird was withdrawn from British Army service in 1977, and the Bloodhound from the RAF in 1991.

    There is something worse than know it all one pips,

    Officers that guard their commission and their face time with SNCO's so greviously that they avoid confrontation over matters that do matter.
    (his whiskers dont matter but they are ridiculous, they are beyond the corner of the lip and in the spirit of interarm rivalry Id ask him what professional or traditional precedent lets him grow it)

    Me too back in June 2001, It rained for the entire 2 week exercise, though the live field firing ranges were great, crazy locals would be out mushroom picking whilst we put 1000s of 7:62/5:56 into the woods, they would just be the other side of the woods No fear at all

    Im glad to see the Royal Navy/MOD can correctly identify the weapons currently used by HM Armed Forces. Those unless im very much mistaken are Sig Sauer P226/8 pistols and not Browning High Power pistols.

    Indeed looks to be the L105A1. Doesn't surprise me with the flicker defence pix, I had to correct simple smelling errors before. Still they have good pix at least.
