Oh, the Chinese fighting suit....

The bowling Alley at Chicksands, (I know they never bought it in the first place, but I think it's valid).

They've gotten rid of so much that made the Army such a fun place to be, despite the hardships we had to endure. And they replaced it with verbs such as 'Adapt' and 'Challenge' .

Despite those c*nts, I still think I've got the best job outside RAF Fighter Pilot/Porn Star/Carl Fogerty.

I've still got me puttees and I'll take them with me to the grave!

I shall never surrender them! :D

Jnr WRAC Q Man?

I'd loved to have been a Drill Pig there. Just to make sure that they stayed on track before the Lezzers Course at Guilford, if you catch my drift :wink:

It was disbanded in about Oct-Nov 1979, Junior WRAC, the mind boggles for those litle girls all alone in their beds at night...........................................................................................sorry somewhere else then!

Along with the above items that you can see, feel, touch and wrap round the tops of DMS boots the MoD is slowly but surely consigning two less tangible assets to the scrap heap -morale and enthusiasm !!

don't forget:

shouting,
common sense,
two year postings with Ex's NOT 3 OP deployments!
and a decent sense of humour!
(now it's just sick and twisted!)
