    Another 'fun story' a friend of mine has a veteran status, done afghanistan and iraq etc.
    So on veterans day over here he sometimes goes and there's a big tent or something where the old mates meet up.
    He told me that every year they have to fish out and escort out certain type of people who'll walk amongst them clearly wearing the incorrect uniform combinations etc.

    I'd personally not escort them out but instead close the tent, and make 15 guys sing the regiment song while some 5 other dudes beat the living shit out of him unheared.

    gheheh

      That mans a nutcase but you get all kinds of people like this, never met some one pretending they was SAS/militairy but ive met loads of people in bars saying there total bad asses with black belts in "add martial art here"

      I know 2 ex SAS soliders though, one was my engineering tutor in college but he just stopped turning up one day, both are over 60 and have had full on nervous breakdowns

        Maybe the surplus stores should stop selling the replicas/medals, then.

        I mean, other than a fairly douchey Halloween costume, what would those be for?

          I once overheard some guy talking to a local amateur boxer whom I used to vaguely know and giving him the 'boxing is all well and good in the ring but for real self defence in life or death situations, you can't really beat learning karate' speech. I can't recall 100% what style he was talking about (this was a while ago) - but I've got a nagging feeling that he was a Gokan-ryu guy...

          Re: tattoos. The guy that does my ink sometimes has to turn away head-the-balls who ask for Hells Angels tattoos. He also tries to explain to them what the negative consequences would be if a real Hells Angel spotted them sporting the logo without permission. Some of them have then gone off to get it done elsewhere - then come back into his place and been all "Look! The guy across town did it for me!".

            To put them in a long glass case on the wall and look at them?

            To sell them on for a profit on eBay?

              What, like a vintage bottlecap collection?

              A bought-and-paid-for medal has approximately the same value.

                LOL about the Hells Angels tattoos, ive seen the deaths head on a mens PINK t shirt in the window of a highstreet in one of those trendy shops you get... I thought thats going to get your ass kicked for sure but then again in the UK the whole 1% biker thing isnt very well understood and most people probably wouldnt know a hells angel if your tripped over one.

                People allways lie about things from there jobs, size of the penis, amount of money or girls they sleep with to how much of a bad ass they are but pretending your a war hero is way over the line I think

                  Pretty much, yeah.

                  People collect coins. People collect stamps. People collect matchboxes. People collect action figures. Some people collect medals.

                    That is a major tool for sure. Being a retired Chief in the Navy this sort of thing happens all the time. These guys use thier lies to gain access to VFW's/American Legions and the like. They also use them to gain privledges afforded Veterans such as benefits. I have a friend that runs a web site to bust SEAL want to be's. You wouldn't believe how many guys have been caught trying to run that scam as well.

                      I can hear it now..."Yes, I realize that my tattoo will get me tortured and killed if a real member of the Hell's Angels spots me with it, but it's just so trendy to get a biker gang tattoo! You don't want me to be uncool, do you? I'll just cover it up when my tv tells me that biker tattoos aren't cool anymore."

                      I saw a guy yesterday with stars tattooed on his knees, because that's what the Russian Mafia does (Yes, those were his exact words when I asked, and yes, I already knew what that meant when I asked.). All I said to him was "You better pray that the Russians in this area don't see you, or it will be the last time anyone sees you".

                      I've seen 1%er tattoos on "ironic" emo kids (I refuse to acknowledge a 25 year old emo person as an adult), three point crowns on guys who never shot a water gun yet alone killed someone, and a whole bunch of other stuff where I told the owner, point blank, that he was a complete fucking idiot for stealing the logo of a group that would kill him for doing so.

                      Bravo to your artist for at least attempting to explain to them why their "awesome" tattoo is not a good idea. Too bad that you can't fix stupid.

                        Mate, i know 3 guys who claimed that!
                        over the years ive met english dudes either claiming to be SAS or hinting at it.
                        What is it with that 2nd guy on the balcony, did he do something really cool or something?

                        LOLOL!
                        He was bezzy mates with the 1st guy on the balcony of course.

                        No I think he was the one who caught fire and got tangled in his gear as they smashed in. And unless one of the guys you met was a Fjiian they wern't the second man.

                        I was combat trades in the Royal Signals before anyone thinks I am walting it up, the closest I got to the SAS was working on Saturdays and Sundays.

                        (Well I did deliver comms and EW gear to them in Northern Ireland so I met the odd one or two).

                            Oh sweet Jesus...
                            That guy better never ever run into proper Hells angels!
                            They have ways to deal with those kind of fucktards.

                            Years ago i used to be a regular in a bikerbar, Hells Angels from all over the place would drop by, never any problems, as long as you just stick to your own bussiness and dont try to be funny or tough.

                            Some fun experiences ive had:
                            A couple of lost cocky students in that wrong bar asking a hells angel ' what exactly it was they tried to convey with those jackets..'

                            some regular dude trying to talk tough like he was some hardass ex fellon making himself look like an ass and had to be escorted out for his own safety.

                            during an anual festival a mate of mine done acid and was going ballistic, i was on the other side of the bar, suddenly one of those angels tap me on the shoulder and said: that one of your mates? get him out right NOW.
                            my mate's a pretty big guy and i saw 3 angels wih their hands in their jackets.
                            close call.

                            the best ever: some idiot walked in and saw the support your local red and white or whatever its called sticker on the bar.
                            so he thought he'd be all cool about talking bout his own bikergang and how badass they were and were all made up by guys who got bored with being a hells angel.

                            little did he know im an enormous asshole and had phoned 2 buddies of mine who recently went full colour and who had a prospect with them just a bit down the road.
                            They decided to drop by, made the dude cry (literally) and kicked his ass through the bar on his way out.

                            aaah good times!

                              Wait?
                              So 'people' (read: "More than 1 or 2 people EVER") get fake mafia/gang tattoos?

                              Seriously?
                              *shakes head*
                              Like...really?
                              That blows my mind...how stupid do you have to be?
                              I know there are stupid people out there that might think it's funny/badass to wear a fake biker jacket, but you can take the jacket off. Then you've got guys like Steve-O who get stupid tattoos, but they KNOW it's stupid.
                              I dunno...I'm speech/write-less

                                I once saw a girl with a tear drop tattooed under her eye, which was incredibly fucking stupid.

                                Also, a squadie once told me the best way to tell if somoene was not in the SAS, is if they say they where in the SAS.
