The "Plume of Feathers"

Bit different for new joiners today, eh? I could have turned up at Ganges in 1967 in the b/buff - there wasn't an item of kit I needed to take - everything from a toothbrush to a duster were given to me, and all my own possessions were sent back home in a box. I'd even had my shortest haircut ever just before going, and they still trimmed me down to the wood.
 
This is my son actually who is joining today,and as geoff says,when I went to ganges in 74 I didnt need a thing!!

He is going to be a Weapons Technician(A Greenie to all us old farts!)

Many thanks for all the help last night.

Will keep you posted on his progress if you are interested??

He'd have to take his own sports rig, however they will supply him with P.E. gear.

Good luck with your son and keep us update!

begs the question........would you do it again hhhmmmmm

Well I am afraid to say I would!!

How else do you get to meet people who remain friends for life in a way that can never be compared to Civvy Street??

Yep I'd do it again and would love at least one of my sons to join, not sure about my daughter though.

Obviously you don't have any in spelling either, but if the lad is that bad he could always try for a commission (qualifications) :wink:
