Was in the SQN bar on friday , guard commander brings in a new boy just tipped up from phase 2 to join my SQN . Of course its a friday night in the SQN bar so before he gets his bags into his new room he has to do the old 'yard of various german ales''. On completion of that his new crew commander gets him squared away for a room . SQMS pops his head in the bar and asks who is the new boy as he wasnt expected , the only new lad due is a pad .Turns out the new lad only got married 5 weeks ago and has since found out his wife shagging about , so he going for a divorce . Well the following day i am taking a few lads down town to get some kit, food etc for an Exercise the unit is going and feeling sorry for the new lad we invite him to come along . Having a bit of a chat with the new lad i uncover some sad facts . He is 18 years old and married to a slapper, He owns a G-reg Escort RS TURBO worth 700 quid .He pays 310 quid a month car insurance.He is 0000's in debt .Well anyway we finish our shopping in town and decide we need some British stuff for Exercise (tea bags , HP sauce, etc etc ) so my car full of recce soldiers and i go to the ''pads naafi'' . Two of us go in the shop whilst new boy and his ''two weeks'' senior mate . We were in the shop for approx 20 mins , on return to my car the new lads are nowhere to be seen , on looking up to the top of the car park we see them in the Tax free car dealers, the pair in the space of 20 mins had signed themselves up for a pair of Astra 1.6 GTi in matching colours . This is a no means shocking story , but why wasnt TPR @@@@@given a bit of guidence in training, no doubt his life is pretty f@@@ed up now so not much use as a soldier . Thing is i am mates with his new troop sgt and i can just see my mates face when he meets his new TPR in the morning .
