Hi Folks,

There has been much controversy, in recent years, over the correct way to wear your poppy. Of course, in the online world things are much easier because to the Twibbon, but offline it can seem much more difficult. Thankfully, this year , the Royal British Legion has issued some guidance. We shall be wearing our poppy with ‘pride’, of course – and ‘we shall remember them’.

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.

3. In which countries are MBA graduates recognised and employed?

Last year’s surveys reported that 12% more MBA graduates were recruited in 2012, compared with 2011.

An increase was reported in all of the following regions:

  • Middle East
  • Western Europe
  • USA
  • Canada

Of these, the Middle East and East Asia (Far East) showed the largest rise in recruitment last year.

Multi-national companies were the main contributors to these surveys and a list is available to enquirers.

The New Recruit

A man joins the navy and is shipped out immediately to an aircraft carrier in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The captain is showing the new recruit around the ship, when the recruit asks the captain what the sailors do to satisfy their urges when they’re at sea for so long.

“Let me show you,” says the captain.

He takes the recruit down to the rear of the ship where there’s a solitary barrel with a hole in it.

“This’ll be the best sex you’ll ever have. Go ahead and try it, and I’ll give you some privacy.”

The recruit doesn’t quite believe it, but he decides to try it anyway. After he finishes up, the captain returns.

“Wow! That was the best sex I’ve ever had! I want to do it every day!”

“Fine. You can do it every day except for Thursday.”

“Why not Thursday?”

“That’s your day in the barrel.”
