Hi folks,

They say if it's not broken then don't fix it but they definitely don't say "if it's not broken, break it then fix it so it's exactly the same as it was"… Which begs the question why we got rid of Recruiting Sergeants only to recognise that they actually work and start using them again. Yes, Recruiting Sergeants are BACK!  As ever, we would love to hear your views over on our Facebook page (just keep it mild-mannered!). Were you won over or do you think the advertising that the military has relied on of late is enough? 

Of course, this Sunday is Remembrance Day, so please do encourage those around you to take just a few minutes to remember our fallen. Whatever you can do – offering help to veterans (a few lovely examples in the news round-up below), making your donation to the Poppy Appeal or just taking part in a service or the silence- it all goes a long way to honouring those who have served, so thank you.

Please drop an email to [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

Joke: The dinosaurs and the lamp

Three dinosaurs stumble across a magic lamp.

They rub it, and a genie appears.

"I have three wishes, so I'll give one to each of you," the genie announces.

The first dinosaur thinks hard.

"Alright," he says, "I'll have a big, juicy, piece of meat."

Instantly, the biggest, juiciest piece of meat he'd ever seen appears in front of him.

Not to be outdone, the second dinosaur thinks even harder.

"I know! I'll have a shower of meat!"

Immediately, huge pieces of meat rain down around him.

The third dinosaur, certainly not to be outdone, thinks harder than the previous dinosaurs.

"I've got it!" he cries, "I want a MEATIER shower!"

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!
