Newletter – 5 April 2018
April 5, 2018 Newsletter
On the 1st April 2018, the first pilots from the newly formed Royal Air Force saw action over France. Just twenty days later, they shot down much feared German fighter pilot Mannfred von Richtofen, known as the Red Baron. This week saw celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the creation of the RAF and it's safe to say that they've done us proud over the past century and it's a joy to see that contribution recognised on the national stage.
Our sincere condolences, meanwhile, to the families of the two British soldiers recently killed in the line of duty. Such a shocking loss.
May we take this opportunity to remind you to log into your Ex-Mil Recruitment account and update your details. With the new GDPR regulations about to kick in, anyone who hasn't logged into their accounts for a period of time will be removed from our system.

You could be eligible for a university degree in management
A university degree in management can lead you into a worthwhile second career. Your rank could make you eligible for an online MBA at a prestigious UK university. Even if you have a specialist skill, a university degree in management is particularly relevant as your next career path should take you into management.
www.onlineuniversitymilipol.com works with military and ex-military candidates worldwide. We pilot you through the university acceptance process by turning your Services experience into ‘academic points’ so that you are offered an online university place with LSM (distance learning associate college of Anglia Ruskin University). There is no charge for this work, as it is paid by LSM, so you can find out if you comply without obligation. We remain with you throughout your study and will even attend the graduation ceremony on your behalf if you are abroad.
The cost of online study is significantly less than that of attending university and, more importantly, you do not need to stop working whilst gaining your degree.
One of the big advantages of online study is flexibility, particularly when you are unable to commit to a fixed weekly schedule. You might even finish earlier than an attending student if you are able to put in more time but your qualification and benefits will be exactly the same. Additionally, you can start after acceptance rather than waiting for the next year like an attending student.

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.

We Like to be social
Two broke and hungry best friends, Dave and John, go to a pastry shop.
Dave suddenly whisks three cookies into his pocket with lightning speed. The baker doesn't notice.
He says to John, "See how clever I am? You'll never beat that!"
John replies, "Oh yeah? Watch this."
He says to the baker, "Give me a cookie, I can show you a magic trick!"
The baker hands him a cookie which he promptly eats. Then he says to the baker: "Give me another cookie for my magic trick."
The baker is getting suspicious but he gives it to him. He eats this one too.
Then he says again: "Give me one more cookie… "
The baker is getting angry now but gives him one anyway. He eats this one too.
Now the baker is really mad, and he yells, "And where is your magic trick?!"
John points at Dave and says: "In that guy's pocket!"
