Located at the most southern tip of Spain or how the locals would say "located at the southern tip of the Iberion Peninsula"

Gibraltar although a Tri-Service establishment is mostly a Naval asset. RAF Gibraltar is a shadow of its former Cold War self and mostly serves as a refuel stop and training area for Air Force assets.

The locals are friendly if what a little erratic at times but in the whole are committed to British Forces as well as the British Monarchy. They totally refute any Spanish links or likeness including the fact that they speak Spanish! Squaddies tend to refer to Gibraltarians as Gibbo`s (pronounced jibbo) to which they take great offence so its best not used in most circles.

The Rock itself is a wonder to behold and contains over 30 miles of WW2 tunnels. A popular past time (for personel stationed there)is to run to the very top in one go! This is often followed by either heart failure or a sense of jubilation.

Particularly interesting are the amazing wanking monkeys of the rock. These unbelievably ugly flee-bitten beasts will give the tourist a friendly screech while lazily having one of the wrist. When not engaging in the real thing, the monkeys enjoy a bit of rape/being raped (involving a whole lof of screeching by both parties) followed by a bit of post-coital flee picking, and of course getting the nappa down. It is said that the British will leave (ie the Rock will fall) when the amazing wanking monkeys leave, which is probably true, because beyond a bit of simian voyeurism (and the Ragged Staff Cave) there's not very much of interest there.

Gibraltar is a contested territory, Spain wants it, Gibraltarians want to say British but Whitehall sucks the international cock once more and does little to lock Gibraltar as a part of the UK, opting for 'shared sovereignty'.

Contrary to popular belief inside the Rock of Gibraltar there are no Nuclear Warheads or a Stargate!

Gibraltar has been central to many conflicts, but is also the scene of one of the UK's most recent military operations, and certainly the only opposed beach assualt in recent times:
