    this might not make sense. i pulled a really heavy transformer out the back of a cherry picker and the other end which had a plug on smacked me square in the chops (tooth went straight through the lip) .
    i have a new fat lip for 2007.

    ps one of our apprentices said i looked hard though, it did nothing for the pain.

    1st Battalion Princess Of Wales Royal Regiment (long winded version).
    Know all about Comando training as best friend was in about 9 years ago. The training sounds fairly extreme compared to the army. Not sure I would have had the upper body strength for all of that rope work! Do they still do the 30 miler at the end of the course?

    All good fun, Fleeter. I'm sure it won't be a problem for you with your fell running legs. Look forward to the helicopter crash landing day if they are still doing that. Brings back nightmares for me... Don't forget to hold your breath
