yes I would do, would be cool. could also be for parents who's DC's are in or wanting to go in etc so if we can help give honest advice on what it's like for the DC's as well - I find that a lot of the time the recruitment office etc gloss over what it's really like.

yes please I'd like that too

JillybeansNW Sat 03-Feb-07 15:51:46

Yes - me too, as I am both partner to current RAF and parent of potential RAF...

McDreamy Sat 03-Feb-07 16:01:00

oooh good idea Munz I can tell potential recruits what it's like to be in the forces and to be married to it too - very different experineces!! You're right about the recruiting offices they do gloss over alot!

I'll sign up here too, as I said on teh original thread, I really think it would help you guys who are dealing with all the cr** that I used to deal with.

Is someone asking AFF Journal to publish something about this? I used to be an AFF rep and I'm sure they would be positive about this.

Good luck shosha, and well done for taking the lead

P.S. My DH has just left the Army after 20 years.

frenziednester Sat 03-Feb-07 16:27:11

yes, I'm going to e-mail aff this weekend and get them to have a look at this - there is also a website called, but I've had a quick browse and I think our idea is better, more accessible and more varied.

Add my vote!
And I'm sure wives of stockbrokers are at liberty to request their own board... as soon as they are left on their own for six months while their LOs risk their lives to fight for their countries.

what's wrong with having an anonymous whinge, icod? Might be just the pressure valve some of us need to keep going. And, last time I surfed, there are lots of whingey threads on MN.

frenziednester Sat 03-Feb-07 18:06:22

Ps, I want a large g+T too, but as I'm still up the flipping duff (will this pg never end), I'll have to have yet another bottle of Warsteiner alkoholfrei (the ONLY good thing about being alone in Deutchsland while pg with 2 toddlers...!)
