That is something to be very proud of @QLDSeaeagle . I wonder if war broke out tomorrow how many 15 year olds would be able to prize themselves away from their virtual reality war games, and confront the real thing? ( they never should of done away with conscription imo.)My paternal grandmother was raised in the workhouse from age 1, my grandfather's older brother was killed in Gallipoli in 1915, Granddad immediately lied about his age (he was 15) to the army and went to France for two tours once with the Rifle Brigade and the second with the Machine Gun Corp.
My old man joined at 15 in 1941, after his sister was killed in a German air raid. He served in WW2, SuezCanal, Korea, Malaya, Borneo.
No snowflakes allowed in my family mate.
