Wearing Specs...

#1
If you need specs to pass the eye test during the medical do they force you to wear them during all your training?

Reason I ask is I'm only 0.25 out in my left eye, its enough to struggle to read the bottom line during an eye test but I do have glasses (mainly for computer use) but I'm fine otherwise...

I wouldn't say my eye site is gubbed, are you then forced to always wear glasses during training?

Cheers for clearing that up, don't fancy having to be forced to wear them doing anything physical when I only really need them to tell a 'c' from an 'o' from 5 paces!

How's your right eye? That's the one you'll be using for shooting.

If you wear them on the ranges just remember to back your eye off the iron sight slightly, I used to forget all the time, with all the hilarious shots going over the top of the target as the sight smacks your glasses....

Even funnier, ask the Q to order your lenses for your S10.....

I must have a fantastic Q because I only asked once and got them sorted out in about three weeks.

If anyone gives a sh*t, I'll have a look through my stuff and see if I can find the note he wrote me at the time, telling me what forms I needed and from whom.

It was over 10 years ago when I first asked the Q, things may have changed... When I left my last TA unit it was a specialist sigs unit I only saw my gat about once a year so I didnt bother asking for lenses, it wouldnt have made much of a difference anyway, no matter how well I could see the target, I was so rusty I would have been lucky to wound the figure let alone get a grouping on him lol

Come on, spill the beans. Mine were allegedly ordered at Chilwell while on the way out to OP TELIC 1. Still no sign of them. Would have been fun changing my contacts in a persistent nerve agent environment ...

Interior. Hard to tell whether day or night. Strip lighting illuminates shelf upon shelf of utterly pristine, unissued but out-of-date equipment. As the jovial theme music fades, a bald man in service dress strolls in, affecting a Pattoneque swagger which isn't fooling anyone.

Dr_Evil: "Hello, Q."

Q (returning fablonned FHM to the shelf, placing it carefully beside a stuffed parrot): "Ah, Eeeveeel. To what do I owe this pleasure?"

Dr_Evil: "I'm thinking of ditching the suave megalomaniac look and going for something a bit geekier. Hint. Where the frik are my frikkin S10 lenses? Have they turned up yet?"

Q (bored): "Do you expect me to chase them up for you?"

Dr_Evil: "No, Q, I expect you to d... Gah! I hate it when you make me do that."

Q (chuffed): "Tee hee!" (clearly lying) "Funny you should ask. I chased them just the other day. The order went through."

Dr_Evil (excited): "And?"

Q (giggling): "Turns out they've stopped issuing them because the new respirator is coming out soon."

audience laughter

Dr_Evil (chuckling): "That's frikkin bollix, Q, and you know it. The new resi won't be in until 2021."

Q: "Busted. No the fact is, they were ordered for you in 2003."

Dr_Evil (impatient): "And?"

Q (delivering his famous catchphrase with exaggerated hammery): "Don't Worry, You'll Get It In Theatre!"

audience dissolves into peals of laughter

Dr_Evil (smacking his forehead with his palm): "D'oh!"

I got issued lenses for my S10. Nice plastic lenses that nestled in rubber frames, secured to my personal respirator. Until it was put in the store at the TA centre. And swapped around with some other respirators. I eventually got it back. It must have been very frustrating for the individual who was issued with my ressie in the meantime and upon hearing "GAS GAS GAS" donned it within the specified 9 seconds - only to find he was looking through my goldfish bowl lenses. I suppose that was when he pulled the lenses from their frames and thew them away. There was no evidence of them when I found it after a long search through the stores. I recovered the rubber frames and took them home. I still have them, fitted with a pair of lenses out of an old pair of specs. Of course I don't need them now but come the day....

Perfect, just a slightly defect left eye so all is good!
