Good investment

If I were to tell you to invest in a certain deal and, after just 3 - 4 months, promise that you would get back between 5 and 20 times your investment, what would you say ? ... Well I know of such an investment and it does not matter how little or how much you invest the margins remain the same ! .....

Re: B sqn lads 1982 - Hohne. Stan, Mick, Sooty and me.

Do you mean that the driver has to get his feet wet when peddling ? Not much changed then eh :wink: ! FFV = Flintstone Floating Vehicle. (I can make out which one is Fred and even Barnie, but the girls aren't wearing their 'floats' :lol: :lol: ) Arnie, not heard from Rick for some time and, as he li...

When we used to swim our AFV's, in my day, they still looked like AFV's. That's a brilliant camouflage job :lol: :lol: !

Re: HERMAN THE GERMAN

No new input ... Does this mean that poor old 'Herman the German' is finally dead ? If so then may he rest in peace for all of eternity :lol: :lol: :lol: . Probably completely out of order, but ... one of my old mans jokes: When a recent Pope died and went to heaven and received his audience with Go...

Re: MAX SIMON

Bob,

what luck you had, getting things 'first hand' from a person of Max's calibre. After all of his adventures it is remarkable that he lived to be 94. May he now rest in peace, job done !

Re: HERMAN THE GERMAN

Arnie, interesting that you mention that there were no ovens in Belsen when you first went there. There certainly were when I was there ! Could this be 'presenting things how we (the winners of WWII) want them to be remembered ? Or, as a certain Mr Trump would say, presenting 'FAKE NEWS' ? Myself, I...

Re: HERMAN THE GERMAN

Dear Sammy and Arnie, I don't usually start with 'Dear' but I was waiting for and wondering about how the clash of philosophies would pan out and I am delighted that you two appear to have accepted each others opinions without getting shirty; this proves we are all getting old :lol: :lol: :lol:, wel...

Re: HERMAN THE GERMAN

Thanks Sammy, I found your thoughts and comments to be very fitting and I know for sure that both of my friends are unwaveringly convinced of their 'contact' and only a fool would get into an argument with them about it. Perhaps you could enlighten a little on 'God the Father, the Son and the Holy G...

Re: HERMAN THE GERMAN

Arnie, don't tell me that you have never been at one of those 'seance' board games where 'the spirits are called upon' to tell the future and the like. In my early teen's it was all the rage and ghost or no ghost it was not easy to walk home on your own, afterwards, in the early hours, without conti...

Re: HERMAN THE GERMAN

Herman was certainly very present in the minds of many during my time at the JLR. While I myself never had a close encounter of that kind I have to admit feeling rather spooked, hairs standing on the back of the neck etc.. There were tales of some workers who accidentally got locked in the tank muse...

Re: TANKFEST 2017

Sammy, talking of ghosts from the past, old Herman the German was still very present (in the minds of some) even when I was with the JLR 1970-72. There were all sorts of horror stories being told, perhaps you would like to start a thread on the subject 'Herman the German' and let's see who has the m...

Re: Done and dusted

Great to hear from you Arnie, I suppose it is understandable that you guys at the top and bottom of the world should have found a link - facebook - to keep in contact with family etc. who wouldn't normally turn up on a regimental web site; afterall which civi would be mad enough to mix it with you l...

Re: Done and dusted

Got to ask: Ferdy, Bodge & Pinky ...

You do BOTH what ?

Log in every day here and on facebook ?
Dust and then inspect yourselves with white gloves on ?

Now I once heard a story about a guy with rubber gloves on, and a gas mask, stranger things happen at sea, or so I am told :? .
