C'mon, they were doing you a favour.You probably did pay just not directly, the army were very helpful in billing me for my fashionable tracksuit, shite photos, unwanted haircuts and TV rental (that I briefly saw through the windows of the WRVS), I didn't have to go through all that old fashion bollocks of using money in my pocket, it was taking directly from my pay.
I got a lovely, smart, short-back-and-sides the Friday before I startedBasic back in '87. Second day at Ashford, 'in the land rover you're off for a haircut! £4 for a number 4 all over!! To be fair the lady doing the cutting was in tears!!
'Every three months you lot come in and it always makes me cry doing this!!'
No it looks like this:This scar. Does it look like a lightning flash? Standby for an early nickname.
I went to school with a lad who was very blond and very pale skinned and wore glasses. HE got called Milky Bar Kid, I never gave it a thought. I rocked up at Lisanelly with ginger hair, freckles and glasses in 1975. Somebody did the sums and asked if I'd been Milky Bar Kid about ten years previously. No, but I didn't tell him that and HE told everybody that I had actually been the Milky Bar Kid, a television star. Saved me some flak in my first days, especially since most of the time I was out in West Tyrone and Fermanagh with the troop, and by the time we got home, I'd done a tour and had an inch of glory.Same here, despite me actually looking like him.

Try not to be put off by the input of some of the old and bold on here. Most of them served when their first personal weapon was a muzzle loader. If they take the Mickey too much just ask them about ‘that rifle’ and puttees and they will have to go for a cold shower.do you still get head shaved or no? its not a big concern, im 15 and im joining Junior army, I've got many questions
