If you look at any photo of a soldier up until the 2nd WW all of them had a g10 issue tash which some of them could use as pillows.they have clearly fallen out of fashion and it is a difficult item to get back to the fore. the middle east seem to have the monopoly on moustaches now and it seems only fitting that if we are going to integrate with the local communities in basrah that a nice handlebar moustache would break down barriers. whilst squaddies are in canada they cultivate their top lips out of curiosity of what they are capable of growing and or whether or not the thing will turn out ginger (god forbid).i heard that a good technique for growing a tash is to rub salt into the area and place a glass of water by the bedside table, the hairs get thirsty and are drawn to the water.not sure on this one though. some girls in the army openly sport them,once saw an RLC lass who had a goatee,(probably had a price on her head!!). i would be quite apprehensive about growing one as i have the face of a 5 yr old drummer boy, if i get a good run of leave i sometimes see what i can eek out.the girlfriend hates it and i look like mickey pearce off only fools and horses. lets not allow the moustache to become the sole property of geography teachers up and down the country and grow tasches for queen and country.
