I was given a DPM poncho by a colleague some years back, which served me well until the house psycho continued her ongoing love affair with the dustbin. I miss it.

You should have got it all in the loft sooner and camouflaged it or disguised it as a water tank.

I've just bought a plash palatka for evaluation as a shooting mat/rain shelter which makes my civvy DPM nylon poncho STR. You can have it for a small donation to H4H.

Yawn….. I wanted to be in the infantry. It was a lot of fun and I had a ball but you on the other.

Oh hang on. you say you have a short attention span!

I’ll leave it there then son.
When I finished my entrance exams and spent the rest of the time following the cracks on the ceiling, pondering as to why some planets spin clockwise and others widdershins, which pub or Indian should I pop to for a late lunch and the various splendid attributes of young ladies of my acquaintance, I was pulled up by the WO2 not waste his or my time. Get back into education, come back in JL or get a feckin' degree and Sandhurst.
Guess who signed up as a Rifleman and never regretted it?

*Allyness (more correctly 'alliness' but, WTF) for those who don't still speak in middle English like old gits such as myself.
