About to pass out of Bassingbourn and and I'm unsure if I wear a lanyard on my number 2's the other fella in my troop who is 1 rtr has a red lanyard but I didn't seem to be issued one and I was just wondering do 2 wear the saffron yellow one? I've brought it up with my cpl but I'm just wondering as it's a weekend noting can be done till monday anyway.

    Cheers for any help.

    Too further your chances of promotion I think a brunswick green would go down nice.

    I was thinking that if you wore pink with your black overalls, you'd go down a storm in Germany.
  6. I can go one better than that, imagine the looks our Regt's 2i/c got when he was in his covvies sporting his QRL capbadge...................sorry motto!!!

    Oh yes I had considered that too.

    Back in the day when 15/19H used to borrow 3RTR Chieftains for Sahagun Day celebrations (and no doubt 3RTR tried to return the favour), I remember one young lad (complete lunatic: managed to fire a Scorpion with a serious shortage of oil in the recuperators and BER a turret) convinced he could score a double whammy by driving a Chiefy out the front gate wearing black with a 17/21 cap badge - I mean motto - in his headgear, thereby nicking a Chiefy off 3RTR and winding up the city of Paderborn that the SS were back.

    I wonder if he ever grew up? I am quite sure he didn't get around to borrowing a Chieftain.
  8. passed out without one as supposidly 2rtr get them at regiment but 1 rtr get them straight away according to the QM.
  9. Utter bolleux!
  10. OK.
    What shall I utter next?
    I just love being given orders. Saves finkin.
  11. I believe "You ****" is traditional.
