Airmiles and Help a fellow Hammer . I'm close to giving up and need help.
https://www.gofundme.com/hu7vfs

C*nt me off. Not a problem.

I am desperate for airmiles from Madrid to London,return for two days only to see my mother before her dementia fully kicks in. She's battled cancer and in April had a stroke and all down hill since.

I can't borrow money I made a vow to myself that I am too ashamed at 42 to ask for money. defjam has paid my west ham games when in UK once a year and my Army mates bailed me out of when needed in past due to no entitlement of social security for me in Spain.

I've read WHO from day dot.

The golden threads has got me through some difficult times with the banter of WHO. My hobbie whist serving abroad for 8 years with the 1st Battalion Royal Green Jackets was writing and the comedy gold threads of WHO inspired me.

I need help. I am ashamed to ask. I'm not entitled to the WHO fund as I've never posted properly or regularly. Just read to keep my spirits high.

After the Army ,before the craze of Post traumatic Stress Disorder I was diagnosed with manic depression after 3 months in a nuthouse. Farnborough common.

I've always been a grafter. At 16 part of a team that set up the rave Lazerdrome Innersense ,well before that future promotions. Was my idea as had my 16th birthday there and contributed to the idea of making it a rave club instead of a lazertag ( Lazer quest it was called ). Also worked with set up of Club UK, McLusky and Wigan. Due to my older brother working with them to set up the Brain club.

8 years Royal Green Jackets and 10 years nightlife.

After breakdown of my marriage and with 8 pills a day prescribed not E. I became a suicidal alcoholic .

I lost all. I sold my marital home and gave all to my wife of 18 years. A Good good woman.

Born in Peckham surrounded by Millwall always picked on but never gave a fuck and stood my ground.

I've met Penner's and Gank and a couple of you once at the new gaff for a game invited by defjam. So they know I'm short and skinny and look far from tough. But I've never took any shit from no one and stood my ground.

I can if not believed ,post photos of me with Phil Parkes Tony Gale Sir Trev etc as a child my dear departed nan took me to sussex beach west ham coaching holidays in Chichester yearly. claret and blue in my blood since 1975.

My marital home was 5 minutes from Cass on Penge high street . We regularly saw each other in the local printers on Penge high street near the Sainsbury's .

After city roads Crisis intervention detox and rehab I moved to Madrid Spain. I had 50€ so was wise thinking if gonna struggle and have to rough it. I chose the richest neighborhood in whole of Spain Pozuelo outside La Finca where half of Real Madrid football team live. One of safest places in Spain . Within a month was working and teaching at Real Madrid the media department and chief photographer.

I turned my life round and am now an experience English foreign language teacher with highest levels Cambridge Celta and Delta diplomas. So work will be fine from September if I can get out of this hole and black dog of depression I've had since October.

My mother has been fighting cancer for two years, I have been a cunt of a son and live with this guilt , she now has had a stroke phone, she does not recognise my voice on the phone.

I have been raised that if you do not ask you do not get.
To expect nothing and accept everything.

Does anyone have air miles that they could spare , not money.

To fly from Madrid Barajas to any London airport - for depart 6th and 9th return Madrid August.

In PM I can explain why cant stay any longer in UK.

With hope and COYIs this season is looking to be interesting.

If can I not reply immediately it is because I am in the middle of nowhere at present on a farm with no wifi or phone coverage.

Please inbox if you are in a position to help and have spare air miles.

Thank you.

Peckham.

Dear WHO and those that have helped me out big-time and donated,

It is greatly appreciated and I am overwhelmed with your support, I honestly did not expect such a response or help forthcoming, I sincerley would have been chuffed with airmiles.

The cash gives me a cushion to take my Mum and niece for a day out each, my niece has Downs Syndrome and in 2 years this will be the first time of having the chance to take her out and most probably the last time to see my Mum and give her a day out , pending her health.

Apologies for not replying sooner, as said was on a farm , 2 hours trek to any sign of a village with hardly any wifi access.

Been back to reality and civilisation in Madrid this week but moved into a flat with no wifi and a blind lady - The toilet and shower door does not lock never mind close - just swings wide open - phoned the owner to fix etc - only to be told it doesnt matter the woman you live with is blind....... that is Spain for you.

Thanks Gavros for your time spent getting perfect timings for flights and transfer of spending money and to Defjam for organising wheels and also sparing your time this coming week and to Gank for offering to help out in Defjams absence.

Crassus thanks for your inbox I will reply when necessary. Really nice of you.

Aalborg hammer also whomail you as soon as possible , also appreciated alot.

Holstebro hammer, if I can get a lift I am 100% in La Coruña , Negriada, Nirvana, week before end of September, looking forward to a caña with you.

I expected nothing and since rehab etc accept everything, so if not all spent on my Mum , yet again it is a cushion until I get on my feet teaching again, this Mid September when the teaching season starts here, with hopefully things looking up despite Black dog and worry about my Mum the past year.

Have not had a chance to watch any friendlies , but live amongst a small plaza of Latin Americans and Spanish , to have a manager of Pelegrinis humble but clued up class and wicked signings is surrreal considering past managers and "the boards" signings- but for me this Fabian Balbuena is a first class signing who will thrive at West Ham a future West Ham legend I hope , now there is a rumour of Moussa Marega signing also highly rated here in Spain despite playing for Porto. I would have been happy with just these and clinging onto Arnautovic, but Pelligrini has done so much more.

Its going to be a blinder of a season and season 2 of Pelligrini will be the tipping point of our dreams for the better.


Proud to be a HAMMER and member of the WHO community.

THANKS ALAN for your daily news threads that I am sure plenty of expats like me look forward to reading, now I am off to also find another good thread the Documentaries recommendations.

Re: Airmiles and Help a fellow Hammer . I'm close to giving up and need help.
Norman,

If you called The Royal Green Jackets a two bob mob in banter mentioning you were a fellow soldier ( as once a Rifleman always a Rifleman as we say ) then I would have accepted you calling us the falling plates or something in jest.

TOO insult Steve Mitchell would be as insulting as one of West Hams earlier ICF leaders. People who did bad things for good reasons, tough shit , and then later in life using their experience and banter and intelligence into one Older and wiser Outlooks that could be let's say BOOKS AND FILMS. There are 3 varying stories of the mission as you must know. He writes fiction and non fiction.

But this does not take away the fact he has and no one can deny - the mission failed - but it was fucking Brave of the team of Mission Bravo Two Zero and Steve an infantryman like us however has been awarded the following -. Commander of the Order of the British Empire a
Distinguished Conduct Medal and the Military Medal.

What makes me proud to be British is our Army , but the SAS IS DIFFERENT FUCKING CLASS AND YOU KNOW THIS, it came up daily in my work in Spain last year before my breakdown, teaching and training The Special forces of Spain and the Kings Royal Guard here.

So to insult any member of the SAS is being a wrong un.

To call a man like Steve a bullshitter appears you are bitter because he has made a successful living from his time from, being a Royal Green Jacket to maybe hitting the jackpot by releasing the first book / version of events of that mission he is now fucking rich and globally respected in all sectors of business and of course as a military advisor worldwide and in Hollywood.

From a """ hard loyal fighter """ can not think of a better word at this hour to an Author. Kind of reminds me of Cass or the first ICF book by BG I read.

Royal Anglians great history. But nowhere near the amount of battle honours of the Light Division.

However if you served in 2006-2008 then i doff my cap to you and your regiment as that was a shitty year for your Regiment I think in Helmand.

As for slating RGJ , YOU must know of the Regents Park bombings where 7 bandsmen were murdered by the IRA, with many civilians.

I reacted and called you a cunt due to this really thinking you was a secret IRA sympathiser , as the RGJ have most probably had the longest serving tours of Northern Ireland than most regiments.


If you have not known any infantryman serving 8 and not climbing the ranks then this is not my problem.

Back in the day doing the Brecon Beacons NCO cadre was no easy task, but with the decline and rapid numbers leaving and recruitment low along with budget cuts , over the years NCOs have been fast tracked bigtime.

You called me shit at my job - no , Norman, my first posting was in Sunshine, the gateway to the Middle east,I was young more interested in birds on the beach and weekends in Egypt or Israel , Knocking peace time work on the head than going to fucking Wales to gain a stripe as for what to be the same person I was but with that little extra leadership training. No I had no desire to climb the ladder as I knew I was not going to do the 3 years, but then did 6 before I knew it which when fucked ankle up a cushty 2 oan Army recruitment team. Not shit - just chilled. Busted rank I take you mean demoted. No I was medically discharged with an exemplary record.

As for whomail - give me strength - I have just got up ( farm life ) and first thing I see is another WHOMAIL - that is TWO - do not bother who emailing me please - fucking twice now. Not even opened the second.

Why the fuck would I give you that number I use it for every fucking banking pin , here , there and fucking everywhere as its the only fucking number I can remember. Drummed into me.

Sorry Norman , I simply have to rise above you and not get into petty arguments and silly insults not if you are drunk again.


I have nothing to prove to you yet again. But congratulations on reaching the dizzy heights of an NCO.

I will open your message at my leisure but do not whomail me again. It is a waste of your time and right now it's an inbox of quality fellas and messages.

You know the black dog - I suffer bigtime - right now with what my dear mother is going through how the chemo has destroyed her , the stroke mentally destroying her and memory going I only want to be surrounded by positive people - Kind people.

yet again well done on reaching the dizzy height of an NCO , No big deal but well done and also for having the balls to join and serve.

COYI

Re: Airmiles and Help a fellow Hammer . I'm close to giving up and need help.
Steady chaps

This is not a thread for cunting off, Norman also served and is thorough West Ham, so may I suggest that we cut some slack please?

In simple terms, let he who is without demons cast the first cunting - if you get my drift

But yes, it is heartwarming to see that in these modern times that not all of modern football is shit, to coin a phrase, old values, proper values remain
