The Heartfelt Thanks of a Grateful Nation

From ARRSEpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The "heartfelt thanks of a grateful nation" is what you receive instead of a decent wage, reasonable accommodation, decent equipment or other proper reward when you've completed a particularly onerous task/tour etc...

Usually uttered by someone so slimy and weaselly (ie Gordon Brown) that you feel the 'grateful thanks' is in someway soiled and devalued.
