Regardless of his beret, the lad still looks like a mongo.
Thinking back to my entry, there were enough ex cadets and back classees in the division to ensure we all at least had decent berets within a day or two. He should have been gripped by one of the other lads in his class before he even got out of his block.
Either his oppos already hate him or as mentioned before he's just one of those spastics that is beyond help.
I fondly recall a lad like that, he was truly gash, we all tried to pull him through, everyone helped out with his ironing etc. I even bulled his bats for him, they were gleaming. Yet within 3 minutes of getting dressed each morning, somehow the big Yorkshire mongo would look like he'd been routing through the scran bag, walked through a sandpit and spilt ketchup on his shirt.

I'd say your Mongo Yorky's charisma in having all those recruits scurrying around after him was an early indication of latent leadership; which evidently blossomed, eh? He's probably up for the (I won't say 'his') OBE sometime soon, too.
When that Class recovers from the rigors of Phase One it would be interesting to see some of those who were once RR Newbies pop back up at this thread to tell us how it really was on that fateful day... I'd hope so anyway.
