Hi Folks,

So, ‘The Sun’ newspaper has launched it’s annual ‘Millies’ award, to celebrate outstanding service men and women in our Armed Forces. Of course, we reckon they should all get one, but apparently, that’s not quite the point. If you can narrow it down to just one person or unit, you can fill in ‘The Sun’s’ online nomination form. We should also mention we’ll be at DSEi 2013 this year – perhaps we’ll see some of you outstanding ladies and gentlemen there too – North Stand N6-390. Hope you enjoy our newsletter.

If you have any suggestions or ideas for items you’d like us to include, or any feedback on the newsletter — or our new website — good or otherwise, please email us at:…[email protected]–mil.co.uk.

Here’s an update from Paddy Doyle and his team:

Former Para & Multi Guinness World Record Holder Smashes Historical 300th World Record Milestone

Plenty of spectators turned up to see Multi Guinness World Record Holder Paddy Doyle make history at the Royal British Legion Club in Berkswell Solihull. Supported by his team of pacers and training partners Doyle attempted four tough and demanding Guinness fitness endurance Records.

The first three to be ticked off were:

  • The most step ups on a 15 inch bench carrying 100lb back pack in one minute. Doyle completed 31 beating the previous Guinness record by 2 step ups.
  • Most squat jumps {jumping jacks} in one minute carrying 100lb back pack. Completed 51 beating the Guinness Record benchmark by 41.
  • Most military star jumps in one minute carrying 100lb back pack. Completed 25 beating the Guinness Record benchmark by 20.

Doyle and his team then got ready for the 10km cross country speed march carrying the 100lb back pack, the start line was outside the British Legion Club. 11.00am was the official start to the gruelling cross country march, he had to go over stiles, through muddy footpaths, fields and inclines. Feeling already exhausted from the previous demanding strength endurance challenges Paddy pushed himself all the way to the finish line in a time of 2 hrs. 06 mins. 59 secs, knocking 23 minutes off the Guinness Record bench mark off.

Paddy said:

“I was worried that my on-going injury’s were going to kick in and stop me; however I knew I had to dig deep and stay focused no matter whether I collapsed or not.

It has taken me 26 year to reach this historical milestone and being the first in the World is an honour, surpassing the 300 fitness endurance record target was truly unbelievable and being encouraged by the supporters helped me immensely.

My team and Jim Morsley were behind me 100%.

It was also great for the Lord Mayor to read out a message from Craig Glenday Guinness Records Editor congratulating me on my recent success.

I will have a rest for a few weeks and relax and heal my body, and look forward to getting back into training in the near future.”

The final total on 17 August of Paddy Doyle’s historical World Record milestone, was 303 documented recorded feats. He currently holds 201 strength speed stamina records.

Congratulations to Paddy on an immense feat!

Watch this…

An elderly man and woman, both in their 70’s, walk into a sex therapist’s office.

The doctor asks, ‘What can I do for you?’

The man says, ‘Will you watch us have sexual intercourse?’

The doctor raises both eyebrows, but he is so amazed that such an elderly couple is asking for sexual advice, that he agrees.

When the couple finishes, the doctor says, ‘There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the way you have intercourse.’

He thanks them for coming, wishes them good luck, charges them £
50, and says good bye.

A week later the couple returns and asks the sex therapist to watch again.

The sex therapist is a bit puzzled, but agrees.

This happens several weeks in a row. The couple makes an appointment,
has intercourse with no problems, pays the doctor, then leave.

Finally, after 3 months of this routine, the doctor says, ‘I’m sorry, but I have to ask.
Just what are you trying to find out?’

The man says, We’re not trying to find out anything. She’s married and we can’t go to her house. I’m married and we can’t go to my house. The Holiday Inn charges £98. The Hilton charges £139.

‘We can do it here for £50, and I get £43 back from BUPA.’
