Next time you see him give him a bollocking and then when you wake up in hospital you can contemplate raising the standards of your self defenceThe other day I saw a WO1 from 23 Reg wearing his cap badge nearer his left ear than his left eye, this would have been a seven day ROP's offence in my day, I nearly gave him a bollocking.

Well of course standards are slipping.
They always are, ever since one protozoa told another lesser protozoan that his flagella weren't straight enough the standards have been slipping.
"Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”
So nothing actually new.
I'd be interested to know if Dress Regs have been correspondingly amended in the meantime. Is it no longer mandatory to wear your cap-badge one inch over your left mince?
Another thing I've noticed is that everyone seems to have taken to wearing gloves these days. You see piccies of the lads in Iraq or Afghanistan, it's ninety-ten in the shade and they're all wearing fückin' gloves! Do they all suffer from very poor circulation, or is it just for the allyness?
Edit> Hey, I've just noticed that I'm no longer on ROPs. Cheers for that.
It's classed as PPE so gloves have to be worn.
I don't quite buy that. If you see piccies of squaddies in, say, Aden at the end of the 1960s, they were working under much the same climatic conditions, but they wore no gloves. I believe it''s been taken over from the Septics, who seem to have started the "fashion" anyway.It's classed as PPE so gloves have to be worn.
