Gilly's boyhood neighbour in Casbah and Sunday School buddy at the Pilgrim Holiness Church. A totally incorruptible and disciplined guy who distinguished himself in the GDF.
What exactly was there to distinguish in the GDF? A bunch of lazy bums mooching off the tax payers money. These useless bastards were used as a political tool by the PNC to secure power and oppress the people. The bums get free food and trips overseas. How many wars did they fight?
There is an old saying, "Nobody loves a soldier until the enemy is at the gate". Unless there is a war soldiers are useless? You can't wait until you're ready to shit to build a toilet. They should have been used differently. The PNC did use them as a political tool. They should have been used to supplement the police force and in drug interdiction and enforcement. This would have helped them to hone their skills. By the way, did you get a chance to peruse that article I posted about when they expelled the Surinamese from the New River Triangle? I know it was a different time and they morphed into Burnham's Private army but it still gives me pride. It was titled, "The Guns of August".
