yeah, my dad is ex-RCT. he served from 1974 - 93ish. not sure of exact sqn etc though. and he's not particularly technically minded though, so i might have to give him a gentle nudge in the direction of arrse...

he was also (understandably) p1ssed off when i applied for the royal marines.

Yup me too...what a dull thread.

We've been a Corps for 13 yrs now. Can we move on?

Also did anyone out there ever:
Fire the SLR/SMG
Own '58 pattern Webbing
Remember tin helmets with the painful spike
Go on Active Edge / Lion Heart?

blah blah blah blah

Yup, there was an identity.....the RCT was loads better than the Corps is today,

there were no fatties, malingerers, biff-chitters etc...

if you gobbed off you were taken around the back of a Stolly and given a dig by a JNCO in the days when everyone respected them

Training isn't what it used to be

every Sgt's Mess had a SWEAT that had been up and down the ranks a few times for sparking out a Rodney

oh and life in Bunde and Duisburg was much better...there were 4 DMs to the £, and Mercedes used to give a 15% discount....

Lion Heart my first big ex.

Those torcher tin lids

Can cream that would ruin Brad Pitts Friday nights out.

Active Edge zz where all the pads would be stuck in traffic for two hours!!

58 Pattern...wait till it gets wet webbing,but will stop you wining about your tid lidimpailing your scalp.

Demonic Raz men that had more men running scared than the C.S.A.

SMG s ...used by SGTs and above or some moaning REME ' we re not soldiers ' blar blar..

The good old days, when men were men & where gobby nigs/sprogs getting slapped on the vehicle park was the order of the day.

Edited by Edgey to sort out poor grammar. :wink:
