Now that most of us have reached an age where we live in comfort and basic is a dirty word, I thought I'd post this photo..no particular reason..other than to remind you that it was great to be young and daft :)

wasn't a lot of privacy then or to many ipods.

It must have been dinner hour..everyone gonking with their boots on.

What year was it? DMS boots and suitcases, no sausage bags.
I hazard a guess 80-82?

1978 ??

No carpets ? wooden polished floor ? was it basic training although I doubt it because you forgot to do the curtains ?

I can't believe they're lying on their pits!! I slept on the floor once I got a bed block that passed inspection - meaning I didn't get a kidney punch if it wasn't up to scratch. Ah the good old days - I hated them :)

Just for the record,
It's a photo of the lads resting to prepare for the awaited invasion of russian troops

Hohne 1972.

So not recruits..but trained killers :)

Not as old as some of you OAPs :wink: but did sleep 95% of Basic in 1988 on the floor because I didnt want to mess my bed block up.

Hmmm, I was going to call your bluff there because the room didn't look right...

But... the windows and the door do look right. It's the floor that doesn't look right; wooden blocks? There were wooden blocks in the garages but I remember carpet in the blocks...??

I have photographs of the era - if I can find them!!!

Carpets? Even in the late '80s we didn't have carpets. Lino floor and a small bedside rug.... Not even a rug in Basic in '88.

I remember doing TA basic at Keogh and one of the lads decided to polish the floor in their room with Klear, Sgt walked in to inspect and went flat on his back :lol: :lol: took them ages to strip it off again...
