It's been many many years,but there are still a couple of experiences that I had while serving, that still annoy the p1ss out of me. 1. On exercise in BAOR, refuelling a 4 tonner from jerry cans, when a Lynx landed in close proximity. The downwash sprayed diesel all over me and especially into both eyes (which stung a bit). I was then driven to the nearest Med Centre where I was told to strip off my diesel soaked kit and then had my eyes repeatedly rinsed out and told to get my head down in the nearest bed. At about 0300, the SSM came barrelling into the room and rifted me to bits for skiving off the exercise. I tried pointing out that I had been told to strip off my gopping kit and kip by the duty medic but that cut no ice whatsoever. 2. Pre BATUS training in Soltau, recieved an urgent message to go and locate a Sgt, who happened to be in the Sgt's mess. I ran down to the mess, and after hanging around outside for 5 mins or so decided, due to the urgent nature of the message, to walk in to see if I could find someone to help me locate the aforementioned Sgt. Cue the appearance of a big shouting WO2 pilot, who pinned me to the nearest wall and tore shreds off me for having the temerity to enter his hallowed mess without an invitation! Again, tried to explain my reasons for being there,but to no avail! On reviewing this post, it comes across as a bit whiny, but what the hey!Annoyed me then and still rankles me now. Anybody else got similar tales or should I man the F up and get over it?
