Although this year’s event has been full for a very long time unfortunately we have had a few pairs drop out last week due to commitments.

 

But that does leave spaces available for this year’s event, we know it’s rather short notice (5-12 Oct) but If you know of anyone that may be interested then please get them to email us here at: forcescarpclassic@hotmail.co.uk

 

Thank you in advance for your help in this matter and speak to you soon.

 

Regards Tim

Love to do this but Canada rears its ugly head again.

:rolleyes:

A-hem! Suffield and most other military preserves in Canada were chosen because they have sandy soil that makes poor farmland but is good for digging trenches and staging tank battles/artillery shoots. It's Godforsaken looking and pool-table flat and can be incredibly hot in summer but driving past on the highway I often see herds of antelope, which is nice. Just taking a dig, Canada is not all ugly. :) My car broke down in southern Alberta on a hot day once but it didn't matter, I already had a prejudice against the place. Met some nice helpful people though so there was a saving grace.

Ouchthathurt, I know that feeling bud I left in May last year, been in one job for 9 months but left just recently...!!! Now unemployed..!!!

 

Yes we have tried Soldier and in other Corps Mags but just keep trying as many different places as possible.

 

If you log in with our website, at least you will know what's coming up in the future and can then maybe attend or not???

 

Best of luck, Tim

I'll definiatley check the website out mate, cheers!

 

Im on the hunt for work at the moment, wanting to go back to the NHS but its not as easy to go back to the NHS as i thought, nor are they as "enthusiastic" to hire us crazy army medics... I blame the repeated "PTSD" paramedic storyline on casualty myself... (yes that storyline does my head in!! How many times can they rehash the same thing over and over? Some of us have developed PTSD, along with physical injuries but we get over it!)

 

I need to get it squared, the work is out there, i just gotta find it!

 

:rolleyes:
