We were told that the several hundred dead were buried under the parade ground. If you didn't swiftly march across it they would come out to haunt you..

Have a bit of think about what you are walking on :wink:
Escape Arrows do need recharging so when told you should double away with a gash bag and a pussers right angle at once.

And obviously with your attitude you wont even make STC selection let alone "the unit"

Ask a Bootneck what instrument he plays.
Funnily enough, two former Bandies transferred to Commando training in the last twelve months, so the odds are now less than 3000:1 of not getting a punch in the bracket for asking. :wink:
