Chris and David

C – Hello Dave, and what have you got for me this week and is the face of the Royal Marines changing for the better or worse?

D – Very good morning Chris and a big shout out to all the fellow bootnecks and frontline units there. Well we’ve sort of rounded the revelations made yesterday at the defence committee, and we’ve had this integrated review finally being released and it’s full but of course what they’ve done over the previous months is this stuff keeps being drifted out in little snippets.

Chris and Robin

C – Robin, how are you Sir?

R – Yeah I’m good, as well as can be expected under the circumstances I think, but I’m still here.

C – Yes, strange times, but you’re no stranger to them.

R – No, no. I’m sixty three now, but have managed to pack a lot into those sixty three years. Depends where you wanna go with it really.

C – Well, I would say a lot of wisdom comes from your sixty three, I was reading some of your paratrooper books, sorry the wise old paratrooper.

R – Yes, yes I did a little trilogy when I broke my neck so I couldn’t carry on teaching Karate, so I went off to Surrey University while my neck healed as an undergraduate at the age of 56, graduated at 59 in English literature with creative writing.

Chris and James

C – James, how are you brother?

J – Very well, good morning Chris, well it’s proper afternoon where you are.

C – Hey, the way my head is it could be morning, noon or night?

J – It doesn’t really matter to me at the minute with this Corona thing going on, I’m stuck in the house no matter what.

C – It kinds of bring home the importance of routine.

J – It gives me a lot of time to work on my writing.

C – Of course. I think writing and podcasting are the two disciplines the flourish under these conditions. I call it a fiasco.

J – It certainly does, I don’t have the technical skills down for this, but I’ve been participating in a lot of Zoom calls, more in this last year than in my whole entire life, which is quite a few!

C -I like brother, it’s what we all should be isn’t it. I wanna say Robert, I’ve had some of the best times ever with Americans. I’m proud to have served with them, I was in Sicily with the USMC.
