Corps Day 2009

#5
I would love to attend Corps Day, but unfortunately family matters and illness have won the day so it is not possible.

I think it is far more enjoyable for those of us who have left, and understandably so.

Long may it continue!

You should all be ashamed of yourselves. If you are not proud to be in the Corps then you should get out.

To be fair HBY it was not always my favourite day of the year when I was serving, it always seemed to coincide with some nasty jiff jobs being handed out.

I really enjoy it now, and genuinely hope the serving guys continue to put the effort in that they do. It is hugely appreciated by the guests!

Maybe that message should get out clearer to the troops rather than deriding them for their jocular lack of enthusiasm!

I will be attending so prepare the red carpet, the fanfare and 21 gun salute, and if it can be arranged, the dancing girls and a stripper in a cake. See you there.

I have it on excellent authority that Black Chrysalis will be sponsonring this year's central event.

There will be dancing boys, a stripper in a Profiterole gateuax and an official Brüno merchandise outlet offering some interesting rigger belt accessories and new Digicam DCU chaps. I could not help but notice one of the Army IAs browsing the catalogue, the Hareem pants are apparently going to form part of the proposed sealed pattern for the new Mess Kit for the POLTUHs

I remember when "that sort of thing" was illegal, now it's allowed, I think I'll leave before it becomes compulsory. :wink:

Its not only allowed, they are advertising it in Soldier magazine. Back in my day they would have been flogged with wet fish and told to recite ninety five hail mary's.

amen to that. the glorious 126th had two weeks added to our basic training - setting up for the 50th anniversary corps day. it's never held the same magic for me since...

i still have nightmares about 12x12s.



and before you say it - no, it's not about them being too restrictive, you funny fuckers :)

It's OK if you're giving. Mind you, I tell the youngsters that, squeeze their knee and tell them we have a very Spartan military ethos and they don't half look at me funny. (Not the girls though, that would be wrong)

I trust you will be giving the rather hairy fly swat an outing on the day, should look good with the deserts

CR so it was your Squad that was the poor bunch who were doing all the niff naff and trivia jobs for the 50th. Felt sorry for you guys. I was one of the poor bastids who was on the parade in the sweltering heat. It was quite an amusing and surreal week especially afer having our own TV star Sgt Maj Sullivan re-educating us and reminding us how sh!t we were at drill.

The piss up afterwards was monumental and I recall a rogue firework taking out the Bavarian beer tent and some eejit pissing on a generator causing that to burst into flames. Fantastic!

Corps Days for those involved in the setting up, delivering briefs and looking after the visitors was always a bit of a pain but I believe it was always worthwhile and long may it continue.

AQ, you may remember two people getting caught in the headlights of the fire truck when it turned up - shagging down the side of the next tent, oblivious to the flames until illuminated for dozens of onlookers :)

CR - to be honest I was that shedded I didn't even know there was a fire until one of my less pissed mates pointed it out. The generator incident was a confession from another colleague. Also I was busy trying out my dazzling charm on a young lady from Basildon needless to say I got feckin' nowhere. Good night though!
