You’ll have @stacker1 on here banging on about having to wear cam cream on exercise next...
To clarify I said why wear it on tech exercises, apparently its so soldiers can have the martial mindset.
Absolutely. You wouldn’t want that to give away a whole column of clanking gun limbers and braying donkeys :)

Anyway I thought wristwatches were a rarity pre WWI?
They were, it was the first unpleasantness which saw them come into common usage.

That's quality!! One of my lecturers in college during the early 80s began his military career as a subaltern in the Mountain Gunners. He started on the NW Frontier and then moved to Burma / Malaya. He transferred to the RA on the Partition of India in 1947, and finished his time as an RAEC Instructor Officer in BAOR. A cracking bloke with a vast store of interesting dits.

ETA: he used to smoke the most rank-smelling cigars!!
