    What do you still do

    You'd die in my job especially as the students feel its appropriate to stroll in 20-30 minutes after the lecture has started, Costa/Starbucks in hand. I've already been asked to not be sarcastic or comment as they feel I am picking on them.

    WO (rtd) Karen McNeil

    It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to WO Karen McNeil she was a friend, an amazing nurse and a great RAF role model. Many of the Lyneham crew may remember her from Aeromed/TMW and her partner still works on Fat Alberts. She passed away on Wed morning following a very short...

    Yes or No

    Having read this story here where do my fellow Goaters stand on this. My take is that she made the decision 4 years ago and because things are tough then back to the comfort of home. Yet she is not sorry about her decision, there is no remorse so in the words of the old adage 'she's made her...

    Is this the biggest con/rip off?

    Like many of you my TV seems awash with advertisers guilt tripping us after the seasonal binge eating and drinking. According to food manufacturers we are all now gluten/lactose intolerant and need to be vegan as well but the advert that's gripping me the most at the moment is PELETON. For...

    28 Years ago today

    28 Years ago I had stepped off the train at Newark and had been greeted by an LAC who directed me to a horrid white/orange/brown coach that had the most uncomfortable vinyl seats and a short time later was dumped at my new home to start my RAF career. What followed is still quite vivid first...

    Time to celebrate!!!

    This headline gives me cause to celebrate. Two electricity wasting, mind numbing wastes of time being taken off air. The move facilitates the removal of airtime from z list celebrities (oxygen thieves) and wannabe z list celebrities trainee oxygen thieves. I am struggling to think of one good...

    Is an individuals background important

    Just read an interesting article here about the perceived difference beteween Army cadets at Sandhurst and was surprised that there is still a high percentage of the cadets who are privately educated.

    Does the RAF rank structure work?

    Read an interesting opinion article here about whether we should be looking at changing the military rank structure in the armed forces. Personally I dont think its much of an RAF/Navy issue but I have found some of the Armys rank idiosyncrasies bemusing with specific Regts having a totally...

    Plea for help Coningsby

    Dear all I am lucky thanks to a fellow goater to be able to show the RAF student nurses around the BBMF on the 21 Aug 18. Is there anyone who plays with Typhoons that would like to host 19 student nurses and 3 staff for a 1 1/2 hrs (1030 - 1200) and let them have a look at the planes. If you...

    Whining Civvie Coppers

    Cannot believe the outcry over the fact that some police had to stay in these horrific conditions for a couple of days! Cannot remember the outcry when we were drafted in for the olympics with some staying in much worse for much longer. If they want to save money then stop forking out for...
