You are right it was Bert and memory does fade in time. In my second year there in 1972 they decided to let JL's have square neck haircuts and sideburns down to the middle of the ear instead of the convict haircuts. It was pretty radical for a Junior Leaders Regiment even if it was the seventies, so it paid to keep Bert on side.I thought the barber was Bert but memory fades with time , I never bought anything off him as his haircuts were shit anyway. The guy who supplied the Red /Blue /Green tracksuits from his sports shop must have retired a millionaire .
The JLRE was of it's time superb in what it did ,but in this new tech savvy generation it just would not work can you imagine mobile phone cameras in my /your time there
