Hi Folks,

Well, now we know who has won the world cup and what shape the cabinet will take going into the next election contest, you might be searching for something else to speculate about. How about “What life will be like in 2045?” If you believe the MoD’s ‘Global Strategic Trends’, the world will be more crowded and dangerous. On the other hand, Ray Kurzweil, the man who predicted the arrival of the internet, reckons we’ll be approximately 1 billion times more intelligent than we are now. Hmmm – wonder what they think of each others predictions? We 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.

Why is It important to use a Personal Email Addresses?

Any Gmail/Hotmail/Yahoo (or similar) address is perfectly acceptable, if you don’t have one from your Internet Service Provider.

It helps us because your personal email address is likely to remain with you far longer than a work email address, and we can be more certain it is up to date. We cannot, for example, know how long your MOD email address will be around after you have left the services.

It also ensures your privacy. Anything sent to, or from, your work email address is open to being seen by your current employer. Many IT departments, quite legally and quite understandably, keep an eye on employee emails. This could prove embarrassing, or worse, if they discover you are looking for employment elsewhere.

So please, supply us with a personal email address unless you are absolutely sure that only you can access it.



Do you have any reunions you want to let everyone know about. Just send in your name and details of how interested parties can get in contact. Also let us know the details of the reunion — who it's for, place, time etc. and a website if there is one, and we’ll include it in our next newsletter. Email us at:…[email protected]

Reminder — Please Check Your Contact Details

Please check to ensure we have up–to–date contact details for you — a working email address and your current phone number and address.

Also, if you haven’t updated or uploaded your CV in the last twelve months, please do so at the Ex–Mil website. We perform searches on the database and if your CV is not there, then we cannot match your details.

Finally, if you want us to remove your details from our database please give us as much information as possible — so we can cross reference your information and ensure we can find you.

Many Thanks.

Granny’s Style tips

Soon after moving into a nudist colony, a man receives a letter from his grandmother asking him to send her a current photo of himself in his new location.

Too embarrassed to let her know where he lives, he has the photo taken, and then cuts it in half. However, all in a tiz, he accidentally sends the bottom half of the photo.

He starts to worry when he realizes that he sent the wrong half. Luckily, his granny has terrible eyesight and so he hopes she won’t notice.

A few weeks later he receives a letter from his granny. It says, “Thank you for the picture. Change your hair style…”

“…it makes your nose look too short”

If you want to contribute to the jokes in this newsletter, just send them in — email us at:…[email protected]. For various reason we can't always include them in the newsletter, but we always appreciate them 🙂
