Big Vern on TV

I'm just watching, with open mouth, Big Vern Rees running a holiday camp in the C4 programme "Wakey Wakey Campers".

Shame this is the last in the series.

I still have a combat jacket with my course report on the back, written by Big Vern.

One word, "Cnut".
Ah "Vern DOP's" I didnt get a course report as he RTUd me...........

Boot polished his binos when I returned.

On a course I was on, he taught us how to judge crest clearance by the "sieg heil" method.

Bit of a prob when the German exchange officer found us in a clearing laying out a gun position, looking like a rerun of the Nuremburg rallies .. .

I also remember him telling a couple of lads on the Adv OPA cse they would fail 'cause their BC was a cnut. He was right, on both counts.

Was he selling them Barbour jackets and "reasonably priced" tailored suits?


Arrghh the suits! Does my memory play tricks or did this tailoring business bring together Vern and J___ P____ one of the great characters from the HAC?
