When your bottom drops out...

...oh the rejection...oh the dejection...oh the conjection (not really a word). Lost, sullen, and lonely (a real word) are what you become. It will be easy to blame yourself because you are wrong. It would be bad and inconsolable if you were acting on your own, however when all of you are involved the chance for any redemption goes so far west that it'll come back around and hit you in the back of the head as you watch it fly away.

Trench Coat Trouble

Those naughty captains! What have they been doing? They must have done something really really bad if the C.O. needs to push his pencil into the desk, a clear sign of outrage by the commanding classes. You know things have really gotten severely out of hand when the phrase 'own good' is used in sentence. How bad can it be? Is one wearing Burberry and the other wearing Aquascutum? There are lesser crimes of course, but none greater than showing disunity to the men.

...but no chicks, man!

Being a pilot has so many benefits. Fast aircraft, fast cars, fast friends...but as it appears (or doesn't appear to be more accurate) that women, girls, sweethearts, the fairer sex, special friends, lady friends, female colleagues, wives, sisters or mothers do not appear to be a part of this fast, and sometimes short, life.
Women are strangely absent from the pages of pocket war comics. It's not like they've been written out of history it's more like they've never been written in.

There's a lot of music I don't like.

Is there really a need to do this kind of thing? I believe in a listen and let listen policy. You can always tell a lot about a person by the radio station they profess they listen to. Many a quick conclusion has been drawn, similar in manner when casual dress day is encountered in the workplace, concerning colleagues and others when it comes to radio station choice. Music is personal. It is defining. There is no excuse to go around bombing radio stations.

Time for a Battler Britton reboot.

If other lesser mortals and immortals can be reimagined then why can't Battler? I know he's highly unlikeable. He's always right, he's never wrong, he's a big 'told you so', his plans always work, he's able to fly any aircraft, he always shoot down the King's enemies, he always knows what to do, he can always get out of a tight spot, his superiors rely on him, his men adore him, his colleagues respect him, he's resilient, he's resourceful, and the list goes on and on. So why no reboot? Why no overworked back story? Why no introduction of a sinister side? Why no spandex uniform? Come on Hollywood! You don't have to be an American to be a superhero...

When you've got it...

...everybody wants it. Time to give it away and indulge or time to pull a number of favours for use later? If you were clearly in demand what would you do? Don't let the doomsayers and fun sponges take away from your moment with the chaps. Stick up for your rights and let everyone get a turn.

Will it ever stop?

Schoolboy humour. Will it ever go away? Could it ever get more hopeless than this? Oh the sniggering...the restrained giggles, the mindless repetition, the unprovoked recitation. Childish? Guilty as charged!

That's how you captain.

A note to all captains of military, of sporting of industry observe, learn, understand, and apply what you see here. Leadership is more than a rank or a privilege or a reward for years of service. If it is your turn to take the reigns reject the situation until you are ready to do it properly.
So when you are ready to take a man in the mid-upper position, particularly a new fellow, remember to lead with your moustache. This is more than providing your best appearance first. This is not a shallow display of uniform. This is about demonstrating confidence.

Feuer! Feuer! Feuer!

It's a funny looking word. It looks like it should sound, but it also looks like it could be another word pretending to sound like something else. Repeat it to yourself a number of times and it will change from your first pronunciation to your last. Saying it loudly will be very different to saying softly.
Perhaps it's not so funny looking after all...

Why do sailors like buttons?

What is it with sailors and buttons. Old school naval jackets, even though very fetching, are awash with buttons. The good guys, the bad guys, even the indifferent guys all appear to appreciate an extra brass button or two. Notwithstanding the natural benefits of the alloy in the circumstances and environment, perhaps there are other forces at play? Perhaps they just look good. Even the bad guys and their inherent evil intent can have their good looking button day.
