ACF 1968 style.......

Thought this might be worth sharing. Me, 1968 as a Lance Bombardier in the 7th Essex Regiment, Royal Artillery, ACF.

We used to go to Larkhill once a year to fire 25 pounders.

Quick moment of nostalgia there! Plus beret and badge, the trouser creases I had not yet achieved!), a stinking heavy greatcoat and a kitbag full of tat, that was me walking home in the rain from my kitting out aand first turnout lesson as possibly the last enlisted private of The Royal Leicestershire's TA in Leicester that year :)

Why oh why did they not make blanco waterproof ? :)
