Jack Blairs

Never did have an account myself, I always preferred the option of waiting until the middle of the month when one of the lads was skint but wants to go out on the pi$$. Off he'd go to JBs, purchase a nice expensive item on his account and immediately sell it down the mess for less than half price - Bargain!!!
 
Remember the days of going away for a couple months getting back along side in Pompey -- Guess what the first pipe would be ' Jack Blairs Naval Jailers' even before the gangway was open !!!
 
I remember getting along side in Fort Lauderdale in either 72 or 73 , and there were the same chaps who would be on the jetty in Guzz , could'nt believe it , they were taking measurements for suits for when we got back to Guzz ,Fxxxxxxg parisites , look at photo's now of the shite we used to wear , big round collars etc, pillick's or what , but look at some of the crap they wear today . :roll: :lol:
 
Yeah I ended up with £400+ with Louie Bastards at 42 cdo. ******* scum bags, mind you it was my fault for being so gullable.

You should be warned about them on day 1 of training.

Can't believe that they are trying to get rid of an honest decent business like Dutchies at CTC yet they let these sharks into military bases.

I did wonder if they were still trading.
Became a 'member' of Bernard's at the ripe old age of 16.
First things bought? - a Beatles jacket and a pair of winkle pickers 8) (on tick of course) and they seem to be the fashion now!! :)
 
When I was at Collingwood back in 01, I remember a few lads who were skint at the end of the month. Anyway, they bought PS2's and DVD players from those sharks on tick, only to sell them at second hand computer shops in Fareham and Gosport so they could go out on the piss over the weekend.
 
When I was on Mechs course JB was doing an interest free thing on his accounts. We as a class went out purcahse Mess Undress and all the finery on said zero %. Completed the monthly payments and then promptly closed the accounts.

Cheers easy JB
 
Jack Blares and the like. A DO's nightmare. I had one young lad on 5 DO/HOD/CO warnings (of varying degrees) and the financial one was never helped by theJack Blare &Co card statements.

Nothing worse than the letter from them to the DO about unpaid bills, the reply that it is none of our business, the months wait, the lad knocking ont he door "Sir, have you got a min?". Then it all unravels.

That and the lad who wants you to get him off on a drift charge "coss it 'ant right and the Joss hates me".

JPA should help no more CTM's to sign Monday morning.

Probably part of the 'Yorkie Dunne Plc' trading empire
