Army Barbers in Training Depots

O my god, what brain dead weirdo's they are.

There were two old gits at Pirbright and a escaped lunatic in ITB Ouston who was ex-SAS / SBS & an ex- US SEAL.

I'm sure he was trying to groom the recruits?

Any other bad experiences?

Of course he was - My barber foiled a plot to take over a building by strapping a PC to a load of Semtex and chucking it down a lift shaft. Fuck along now ...

As if a No4 all over when you've a 'fivehead' wasn't bad enough, our barber used to smear brylcream into our young, hungry anuses before spearing us.Kissing my grandfather now, always gives me an erection..........as does plating my grandmother's date.
The days of noshing at the Flaming Mug still haunt you my son - after a hard day at the PAFB - i absolve you and set you on the path to heaven.

as we hadnt been paid - a lot of lads tried cutting their own/each others and made a right mess of it with blood everywhere but that was before clippers were freely available.

5 at the front with a bit of fringe, 3 at the back and 0 down the sides, neat and tidy for a couple of months :)

It never mattered what you asked for in Juniors you always came out with the same cut, short back and sides and a wanky fringe.

Talking about haircuts, I did enjoy when you had come off summer leave in Juniors and there was the usual admin fuck'ups who'd never bothered to get a haircut. They would then set about getting some other fuck up to cut their hair late on a Sunday night. This would end in some Frankenstein lop sided creation with razor cuts.

Cue next morning on parade checking for haircuts, "who the fuck cut your hair?" , "it was me mam Sarge" "you sure". etc .etc
Always ended up as "Number 2 all over, by lunch time, no excuses".

Hair comes in only two styles for Men
No.1(summer)
No.2 (winter)
Everything else is fer Burds and Poofs like. Wisdom from Sinner senior (To be honest he was mentally ill, he ENJOYED jumping out of perfectly servicable aircraft and Pink french style hats).

I take it you're on about Mick the Prick. He was in the TA and into sea fishing. He could bore the life out of you.

Was waitin for the usual "Lionel Blair" style session when the CSM jumped the queue and I had to do one, Got jarred up on muster by him the next day.

"Bert the Butcher" at JLRRE dover - would casually ask if you might like to purchase some boot polish/brushes/duster etc before asking you with a big smilee what haircut you'd like. he only did 2 types, Terrible if you didn't buy anything and utterly f**king awful if you did.

Nothing beats the "stylist" who chopped our hair at GV on Grapple 4. Missing teeth, orange lipstick and yellow stained fingers. I never found out what else she offered....

At the other end of the scale, we did have an ex Coldstream Guard regi barber stationed in the garrison. You called him up, he'd come over to the office, chop your locks, charge you a pound.

Simples.

Towards the end of Op Grapple 5; a Croatian bird was chopping hair on the 3rd floor of BRITFOR HQ of Divulje Barracks.

A bit rotten, but she had a low-cut top and big bazooka's.

The queue went up and around the corridors like you were waiting to get onto a ride at Alton Towers !

The proper cue was down in Trogir, MALBAT were lined up in the street.

Late 80s in Roberts Kaserne in Traz you either got a german called SHAKEY or a short bloke who looked like the Karate Kid trainer we nicknamed Mr Mowaggy.

It was hit or miss if you got SHAKEY you were in danger of losing an ear or Mr MowAggy who was as bent as Jarrod and used to rub his balls against your leg as he cut your hair.........there used to be loads of Medics queuing up from 2 AFA waiting for Mr Mowaggy to cut their hair.
