Sent a recruit to the Provost Sgt with a landrover battery to get it charged. He told him he couldn't do it and sent him to the SSM. The SSM explained to the recruit he couldn't charge the battery without a charge sheet so sent him to the Adjutant. The Adjutant just went wibble ...
Once sent a mate down the bank to change 100 zloty in 20 zloty notes for me....when there were about 500,000 zloty to the quid! Also convinced the same bloke - from a safe distance - that a can of CS spray ( with Paralyzator written on it in big letters!) was a really nice deodorant spray!
We once had to paint a red line around the inside of a AGM84 Harpoon Missile storage shed in Kinloss bomb dump.After the paint was dry,the masking tape was removed & was made into a big ball.
The young LAC (17 year old straight from training) was told to put the used tape back on the used roll & exchange it for a new one. And he did!
