Hi folks, 

The main story in the news of late has been the delay of national reopening in the UK. It feels like we've stalled and we really just want to get to the end. Let's keep on hoping that by the time we're writing the newsletter in late July, it's all over and done with! 

The great news for candidates is that we have been super busy here at Ex-Mil Recruitment and you'll find lots of new, fresh roles below for you to consider. 

Elsewhere, it is 39 years since the end of the Falklands War. British Forces continue to maintain the safety and security of the islands and their inhabitants. You'll find a useful article on what that entails here. 

Another recent anniversary was marked recently with British military personnel firing gun salutes to mark the 68th anniversary of the Queen's coronation. As a great supporter of the armed forces, it is great to see her honoured in this way.

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

Joke: Goat

One of them spots a hole in the ground that looks unusually deep. He picks up a rock and throws it in the hole, and never hears it hit the bottom.

"Try something heavier", the other man suggests. They find a rusty old anvil nearby, pick it up and throw it down the hole. Five seconds later a goat comes speeding toward the hole and falls in.

"What the hell was that?", one of the men say.

Just then another man runs up and says, "Please, have you seen my goat anywhere?!"

"Yes", they reply. "We just saw him run this way and jump into this hole!"

The man says, "That's impossible. I had him tied to an anvil."

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!
