Re: You couldn't make it up.

WHL Young men aged 16/17 years of age may join the army. However, they cannot be sent into a combat zone until they are the age of 18 years.

Is this website considered reliable or is it just another load of meaningless words?
There are a lot more websites which say the same things as this one, instead of moaning about this website, why not add another web site, to either support this or to rubbish what it reports, :roll:

Re: Taking Back Their Island

I was friendly with a bunch of Scottish builders who had infiltrated our student bar for some cheap hooch. They were all from Glasgow, but one of them I couldn't understand a word of.
