Mate, screw you.

New Zealand and Australia do the 11th hour on the 11th day and have done it since it was originated.

The reasons why we do it are more embarrassing to you then they are to us.

So up your bum if you think we don't respect our fallen. Because we do......with a sense of solemnity that you don't probably understand.

Idiot, it has always been tradition here to hold Cenotaph Day on nearest sunday cos no-one is working that day (almost no-one).

Did I mention you were an idiot ?

Oh, as well we hold a smaller ceremony on the 11/11 whatever day it is.

Don't try and tell me anything about history or the military.

Ok....I am officially an idiot. My apologies.

Nobody gets to argue about the fallen.

I actually know more about the military, but only because I was a soldier.

To know rank and authority is what being a soldier is all about.

When civvies say "I know the military", they in fact know jack sh#t.

To be in the military is an endless line relative to grace, deportment, tradition, knowledge, discipline, structure and service to one's nation.

Never say "I know the military" unless you have been in it.

For your information.

For your information, all my 3 brothers were in the military, as was my father. I, on the other hand , got a proper job.

Of my four brothers, only two of us were in the military despite our father being a legendary RSM.

For those of you that don't know of the "RSM"........he's Jehovah but a LOT more angry.

And heaps more cultured.

Actually, it's a Regimental Sergeant Major.

One of the most highly regarded and treasured of all military ranks.

In certain units, the RSM holds authority over and above that of officers relative to any rank below that of warrant officer.......in other words, everybody else.

To military units that don't have an RSM, the next biggest unit that has one has authority over you.

In essence, RSM's are not only living and breathing authority, but they are "GOD" as far as a common soldier is concerned.

Not all RSM's have seen action. But ALL of them have been specifically selected.

I am PROUD to admit that my father was once an RSM.
