Hi folks,

We don’t need to remind you to be on high alert right now, given recent terrorist attacks, but please also keep a close eye on each other and on our serving colleagues. We’ve seen a strange event in Canterbury and yet another in Kidderminster recently, both at army barracks. Although there’s no news yet on who was responsible, it’s important that we are prepared to act if necessary.

Changing topic, we were rather taken with this story of a wild party that got seriously out of hand. Thankfully nobody was hurt, so it's a great reminder never to mix youthful hijinx, alcohol and flammable materials! We’d like to lighten the mood by asking what you got up to (that you’re willing to admit to) while in service. Hop on over to our Facebook page and tell us your tales of mischief – just keep them family-friendly, if you can!

Drop us a line on [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

Joke: Longest Memory

A man and his family walk into a bar. Inside of the bar, the man's youngest child sees a Native American sitting under a sign stating "World's longest memory".

The child walks up to sign and decides to test if this sign is true.

The child asks, "What did you have for breakfast 30 years ago?"

The Native American states, "eggs."

The child states that the native could have just made that up, and then later leaves the bar.

Years later, the child, now a grown-up, returns back with his own family he sees the same native American at the bar.

Walking up to the man, he states a stereotypical, "how?!"

The Native American replies, "scrambled."
