it a historical answer im lookin for
Wah. That said, women iron - soldiers press.
Can I be the first to say......Waaaaaaaaaah
The state of my boots usually ensured enough of a b*llocking before the rest was noticed
But if not - th' Army presses its Uniform!
So they don't look like a bunch of scruffy, ill-disciplined Johhny Foreigners.
Uniforms are for dying in, not ironing.
But why die in a uniform with no creases looking like a bag of shit when you can go out in style with boots shining and creases you can shave with. Ahh I love the smell of starch in the morning
Because it'll save your life one day.
As will marching up and down the Parade Square, getting a nice gloss on your boots, being able to perform origami on a blanket, etc, etc,
Its to kill the lice in the creases
Been out 19 years now, still catch myself trying to press pleats in my daughters' school uniform blouses...
It's a skill that stays with your for life!
ok then press their uniform!!!
They can survive dry-cleaning? Tough little beggars, aren't they?
I still do all my own kit, takes me long enough to put 1 crease in my shirt and trousers, christ knows how long it takes her to put the half a dozen in when she has a go. and I have been out a while now
If the British Army didn't press their uniforms they'd look like fish-heads.
Or even septics
