    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

            On request from Hedgie, I have decided to put up a story about Jon, just to show how mad a bastard he was!:biggrin: When we were but lowly recruits doodling around the MO's office in the great Dún Uí Choilleán, in Cork, Jon, being the group messer, spotted a wheelchair unoccupied in the far corner of reception. Being unsupervised, with no sign of anything happening, he hopped into the wheelchair, and started playing destruction derby with the reception, pretending to be in a Pro-Drift car, pulling fake handbrake turns and crashing into everything he could find. Then our CQMS who had accompanied us stormed in the door, looked at Jon with a questioning face and said,"Are ya alright there, son??" What a legend. And in September, when he returned from his Summer camps as a 2* PTE, myself and Jon loved taking the piss out of the new recruits, trying to figure out Clé from Deas. RIP man, not a day goes by where me, your family, or friends don't think about you lad.
