Dutchy served me well for my 37 years in the Corps, and he should be allowed to continue in C TC RM.

Col Peter Babbington CBE MC

Dutchy's is as much to C TC as the "static tank", "PW's", and fat chicks in Exeter (apparently), why can't they leave well alone, what's the old saying, "if it ain't broke........", once again "Cheers pusser, in your infinite wisdom.........".

Cheers, Larry Lamb

Hey lads

What a response...I am proud of you, your efforts, and the way the Corps and all attached forces have jumped to the front to do battle for this great cause.

I am a 36-38-40 shirt size...might have put on a couple of lb's not having Dutchy's health food to nosh on

As a former Royal!    Hang in there Dutchy, but if it doesn't work out I've been living and working in Thailand for over 4 sweet years and after a Leo Sayers on Sang Som! (Thai whiskey for all you non Thai wretch's) I could always do with you over here.

"To stand and be still to the Birkenhead drill, is a mighty tough bullet to chew"..

As I recall, the most popular saying amongst the troops down south in '82 was: " We're all doomed "

The next has probably never been written down, but I was told it by a Support Coy rating in the Far East in '68..

"Never Mind The Gongs and Medals, Man Used to Gunfire!!!..... speak up lad!"

That's where I got my education!!!

Ni illigitum carborundem!

As an Ex Marine who now is living in Dubai with a son who is serving as a Marine at Lympstone C TC we wish you all the best in your saving Dutchy's good luck.

Hi Dutch

No it should not happen, keep at it and stay, dig in, and fight a rear guard action.

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.

-  Robert Louis Stevenson-

- By sea and air and Land  We go -

"Aye. Fight and you may die.  Run and you will live - at least, a while.
And, dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade
all the days, from this day to that, for one chance - just one chance -
to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives,
but they will never take our freedom?"
(William Wallace)

Just to say that all my years in the corps how could they think of stopping you? What a wonderful service you offer to ALL ranks keep fighting
