Even by our standards it's wet with a lot more to come in the next day
or so.

I spent the day at the Royal Marine Commando Training Base near Exeter
yesterday. It was WET and that is a huge parade ground to get across when
the rain is horizontal.

ALL DAY it rained.

Change the P in RM instructors' favourite saying...

It's only pain.

As the Noggies say there is no bad weather only poor clothing.

My friend is in the RNR.

Your friend is in the Royal Naval Reserve which is still nicknamed the Wavy
Navy from the times when RNVR and RNR Officers had wavy gold braid, but the
RNVR and RNR were merged and years later, have straight RN gold with an R in
the top loop of the braid. The wavy braid was then issued to Sea Cadet
Officers but even now they have straight gold braid with SCC in the loop.

As you are aware of Lympstone etc, your friend might be a reserve Marine and
that would be RMR

The difference between RNVR and RNR is that Merchant Navy personal signed up
for training in the RN as reservists and were RNR whilst those outside naval
experience Volunteers were RNVR.

Because he finds it boring, as do I. I have a son who was in the RM, but
I don't wish to bore everyone about it.

It did cross my mind but I think Mike is using a non address.

You and anybody else with a decent newsreader could also use the K key
if you don't want to read about the weather and that Mike knew what I
meant about the wavy navy in the first place.

But you don't live for second-hand glory like Mike does.
