Strangest things left behind by previous occupant

#1
Moved into a quarter in Buckeburg, nr Minden and came across these shoved to the back of bedroom wardrobe:

Friends video, Black Lace 12" single of "Agadoo" and a well-used porn mag... 8O

So what have you found that made you go "hmmm..."
or what have you left behind?

You should have charged him for storage.
Price? Oooh, a couple of hundred quid ought to cover it...

So much for the March Out inspection?
If your inspection was booked for a busy day, 9 times out of 10 the Housing Officer didn't do much more than glance round the rooms. Then there was the civvy bint in Buckeburg who did our march out inspection, sure she was related to Himmler. She reached into the u-bend of the loo and because she could scratch off some limescale with her fingernail, failed us!! :x

Frog civvy house this time:

A cuckoo clock (broken), a huge stack of truck porn (French trucking mags), a totally naff backlit picture of an Alpine scene (should have been broken but wasn't), a compressor (worked but no use when we lost the 380v supply), various sets of curtains as perhaps like those Stevie Wonder would choose (mostly with a sort of psychedelic puke pattern), a WWII artillery shell (not live), a party tent (with one of the feet missing), a school desk (won't fit through the attic trapdoor so that's where it stays), an axe (blunt), a sofa (knackered), two chairs (also knackered), a fridge from when De Gaulle was a lad (great for keeping things warm) a gas oven (great for keeping things cold) and various other 'things' that were either returned or introduced to a skip. Kept the shell though.

Not so much as what was found,as what was delivered.
I shared a flat with an ex Gordon Highlander mate a few years back,and on the first week of the month for 3 months we got a box of 6 bottles of wine delivered to us. We agreed we shouldn't touch it for a couple of weeks in case the previous owner turned up looking for his booze....... That idea lasted about half an hour.

On a takeover from a Jock Div Ops Officer in W Belfast when alll the other junior officers were receiving their porn stashes that go with the job, I was handed a load of body-building mags. Cheers straight bloke.

Two strangled kids, 3 decomposed runaways and a festering old prossie ... last time I buy a house built by Fred West.



The pointing was sh!t as well.

First place I rented when came out of the mob. Large cardboard box in the meter cupboard:

Umbrella Qty x1 - Unservicable
Base guitar - equally u/s
Walking stick - Bavarian pattern
Framed picture of David Bowie - Serious Moonlight Tour
Plant pot - broken
Shoe Qty x1 - Woman's
Tracksuit bottoms - non-Ron Hill pattern (dirty)
Biscuit tin - various cycle parts
Polystyrene ceiling tiles - 1 x Pkt
Pile of jazz mags - none (typical)

A far from ideal stash, as I'd have been perfectly happy with at least one spuff mag and/or a pair of soiled knickers. Needless to say the box and its contents got skipped. Imagine my surprise when (a few months later) the property management bird did an inventory check and found it was missing the above. Imagine her surprise when I not-so-politely asked why I was paying these fcukers £300 a month just to store someone else's shyte? Result... loss of deposit - which they put down to cleaning costs, as I'd apparently left the gaff in rag order. In reality it was infinitely cleaner than when I moved in. Cheeky cnuts.

Never had the pleasure of "married quarters". What exactly is a "march out"?
I have visions of a white gloved inspection with a "you're going nowhere" ring to it. Could you just tell them to fuck off? Did you actually have any rights? Did thery care?

This is not a wah.

On moving into a pit space at 3div signals in Bulford, i inherited a suitcase full of paraphanalia for breaking into cars, some car stereos and other assorted dodgy shite. Seems the previous occupant was the cnut who was breaking into cars whilst we were on exercise, he was also the det commander of the rebro on Kiwi hill, so would just come down at night from his det and carry on his activities. No-one ever suspected him, despite him being a scouser.

My mate had his wife convinced they literally had to march out of their pads quarters when it came time to leave. He had her doing drill in the living room for a week before it so as she wouldn't show him up in front of the other pads. Poor cow was kacking it for a week,f uck knows how he managed to keep up the pretence.

I bet it still comes up during arguments.
