Hi folks,

This weekend will see one of the biggest security operations in years as Prince Harry prepares to marry Meghan Markle in Windsor. Here's hoping that everything goes smoothly. The Prince is one of the armed forces greatest supporters and we wish him and his new bride well. 

Speaking of the Prince, he was one of the founders and long term supporters of the Invictus Games for current and former service men and women. This years' event will take place in Sydney and although the Games don't take place until October, the British Team has been unveiled so we know who to cheer for well in advance! 

One final reminder (and sorry for banging on about it!) for the new GDPR regulations which dictate how we contact you. Please ensure you have logged into your Ex-Mil Recruitment account and updated your details. 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.

Joke: Soup

An old man comes into a restaurant, sits at his usual table, and orders the usual — matzoh ball soup.

The waiter sets it down in front of him, and stands back to watch him enjoy it. But the man just sits there.

"Is there something wrong?" the waiter asks.

"I can't eat this soup," the man replies.

"Is it too hot?" the waiter asks.


"Too cold?"


"Too salty?"


The waiter calls for the maitre d', and for the chef, and each goes through the same routine: "Too hot?" "Too cold?" "No, no no."

Finally the chief, at his wits end, says, "Sir, I will taste the soup myself. Where is the spoon?"

Says the old man: "A-ha!"

For various reasons we can't always include them in the newsletter, but we always appreciate them!
