    It's beyond me why people would want others to believe they have been in the SAS etc.

    If somebody was just talking about it I don't see much harm in their childish fantasies.

    However I would certainly draw the line at somebody wearing decorations or uniform they are not entitled to.

    That's just disgraceful.
    Cheers,

    Could have been SPS, Special Pen Services, as the clerks are often known.

    It’s true. At my secondary school we had a Combined Cadet Force which was run by the staff and connected and supported by regular army. Several of the Officers were teachers and a couple were TA.

    The Quiet Soldier is an excellent read by Adam Ballinger.

    I second that, a very good book. I was in 4 RGJ in the 90s & knew 2 guys who'd served with 21 SAS.
    Lewis Collins served with B Coy, 10 PARA.

    A guy who I used to knows’ step father was in the military and while he didn’t say what he did, he would say that he was glad that he ‘beat the clock’
    Does anyone know the significance of that?

    Sounds like a reference to SAS selection, the timed marches etc.
