army issue tasche

Still got mine too :D

It's more of a mexican tache these days - gonna hav to get it to regulation shape before I get jailed tho!!!

F_F_box sees it as an endless source of mirth :D

Long live Ron Jeremy that's what I say pmsl
A moustache is not a moustache unless you can see it from behind. Mine is hidden in a full set now.
Mine is as resplendant as ever (no sign of grey ........ yet!) :lol:


Still quite common amongst tankies and Recce units when promoted to SNCO. Memories of these upper lip warmers are always available on any SSVC production.
Shaved mine off the day before i met the long haired general, who confessed afterwards that she hated tache's. So now Im not sure if shaving it off was a good thing or a bad thing :?
They seem to be more common on Ops. The "Tour Tasche" is usualy priority number one when the first grain of sand hits your boot!

I made the mistake of talking to Mrs MB using a webcam with said tour tache looking marvelous - she was fecking horrified and refused to talk to me :D

Now why didn't I think of that 10 years ago 8)

Slightly off thread but the "Ops beard/goatee" appears to have the same effect with my sunray.. scorn, derision and then just general abuse from her... dont know why.. Its my fizzer and its not like shes got to anywhere near it for several weeks at a time...

Edit - Just in case.. not serving any longer.. but still in a sandy place for weeks on end.
Once shaved mine off,and my daughter took one look and said.....aarrgghh Dad you are really ugly.Needless to say its back!

Shaved mine off one day - daughter or Mrs Busta didn't notice for a week. Come to think of it there's no piccys of me dotted around the house either. =(
Mine went about 1995, first grew it whilst in Londonderry back in 1985. Still shudder at the memory of one of my mates wiping knob cheese on it whilst on exercise in Portugal (you dirty bast*rd Bomber).
Grew mine on tour in Ni in '79

Having a shave New Years Eve before going out on the 'lash'

and thought 'Fcuk it' it and shaved it off..
(I'd had a few warmers into the bank..)

when I stepped out of the bathroom the wife Piss*d herself laughing
big daft white stripe on top lip - never thought of that!!
(not seen light of day for 15 years!!)
Grew mine in 1976 (rather wispy but passed CSM's inspection so I was allowed to keep it), matured it into the SF mexican style in the mid 80's and went back to a neatly trimmed tache in the 90's until I retired from wearing DPM.

I tried the full set but ended up looking like a refugee from a u-boat. Now settled on the goatee a la Robert de Niro in the film Heat:

Mine's a bit greyer though and matches the hair these days...Mrs Rodney2q like it though


shaved mine off in 1991 - took ten years off me! I grew mine when I was a young officer because I felt it gave me an air of authority. Looking at piccies from then I suspect it actually conferred an air of "Wahat a t0sser" on me instead. Didn't help being red as a fox.
I now have a mental image of you as Alec Guiness in Tunes Of Glory
