Digging In

#1
I'm getting pissed off with the same old s***, every other weekend we're down on some training area digging latrine or some sort of trench system. When I joined the TA I thought I would be using modern rifles like the SLR instead we're still using the old Lee Enfield.

Anybody else had experience's with old sub standard equipment.

Do you still get paid at 1914 rates?
When are you off to Afghanistan?
Do you think the Taliban will be as averse to a bit of cold steel 'up em' as the Bosch were?

With a cap badge? Aren't you the lucky one. I once had to dig a shallow grave with my bare hands, at night, in the pouring rain. Mind you, it was a random, spur of the moment killing.

On the plus side she was very attractive and took it in the tradesmans..........eventually.
