You forgot the little bit that goes bang and the big bit that goes BANG because the little bit went bang.
That makes 10 of the 9 parts.

No it's ******* not correct, Flying Felix has correctly highlighted the 8 out 9 parts of a shell and that's all there is to it:

1. pointy bit
2. flat bit
3. waist bandy thing
4. sholder
5-6. two sides (inside and outside)
7. paint
8. the box it came in
9. ???
Someone else even managed to get the super duper 10/9 parts of a shell but I suspect they might be an instructor of shells so it doesn't count.

The correct answer for number 9 is- the lid for the box.

How very ******* dare you come in here waffling shit to experienced AT's about shoulders necks and pockets. Are you a ******* drill instructor?

FFS, the question was "parts of a shell"..........................................

The parts of a round are:

ale
crisps
dry roasted
lager (if there are girls)
banter with barmaid
lots of cash

How difficult was that?

What for? Thats what the course is there for. Dont come across as having an unhealthy interest in Ammo. Believe you me, as far as im concerned fuel goes in my car and fucks my boots up.

Never mind all that - that's what you'll learn at the School. At this stage, concentrate on English, Maths & Science, read a quality paper, have a good overview of what the MOD's problems are, have a good answer for why you want to be an Ammo Tech, buy a suit that fits, learn how to tie a proper knot in a tie, wear shiny polished shoes and no white socks!

Fair advice, but why the newspaper? It's AT selection, not AOSB.
