Re: Need to know

Bob, the particular branch I am joining is indeed a large handsome club-like establishment: Bar, snooker, darts etc. Just suits me fine for where I am in life at this time. I have a hip implant and don't plan too much marching. What I am looking for is affiliation, I have outlived most of my friends (and their wives).
When I was being interviewed by the Branch President, who was obviously an old sergeant-major (his moustache alone gave him away). He was reading through my application, he stopped, looked up and said, "You're an old fart aren't you?". I looked at him and asked, "What's the age limit for a Veteran?". We both laughed and recognised barrack-room humour ( I felt at home.).
