Hi folks,

One for sports fans this week in the absence of any positive or even amusing news… can we go back to the days when all politicians did that was of any interest was the occasional sex scandal?

Today will see the boxing Inter Services Championships between the army and navy. The army held the crown for a whopping THIRTY FOUR years before losing it to the navy last year in a major upset. Can they win it back this year?

You can watch the Army try to win back the title live on Thursday at 7pm via Facebook and the Forces Sports YouTube – it should be a great distraction from all the Westminster nonsense!

Don’t forget to come and chat about your favourite stories or anything else military, interesting or amusing over on our Facebook page!

Joke: Policeman at the door

A policeman knocked on my door this morning, but I just locked it and sat there in complete silence.

After 20 seconds he knocked again, but I just continued to ignore it. The knocks got louder and more frequent but I was determined not to move in the hope that he would just go away.

Then, he decided to look through the window. He shouted, "Do you think I'm stupid? I can see you in there, sir. Open the door!"

I said, "You're not coming in mate!"

He said, "I don't want to come in, I just want you to step out of the car."

If you've got a joke you'd like to suggest for this newsletter, just send them in — email us at: [email protected]

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