told to me by an old and bold in an RSL (RBL in your speak) I was class leader during my AB course in 67 at Cerberus . We were at the covered in Parade ground . A certain Chief GI had a "brand new" class of Wrans . The chief was having a horrid time . Squad Ho , bit of a shuffle , squad stand at ease , the girls would look at each other , shuffle around a bit more . You horrid little cretins and other curious names came from the chief's roaring voice . This is how you stand at attention , feet together , this is how you stand at ease , feet 18inches apart . Squad , stand at ease , shuffle shuffle . C'mon , c'mon Get Those legs apart , ya guts won't fall out . Well most of them were in tears by now as he started to take it a bit easy on them , lunch saved them as well . Next morning , same new class of wrans , same chief . He was giving them heaps . I thought to myself he's going to lose it soon. When I give the order , "by the right , dress" (you know the drill) Squad , by the right , dress . Well they wandered all over the place , the chief is about to blow a valve . Dress up , Dress up he hollored , in a way Only this Chief could . WELL , down 2,3 grab the hem of the skirt , up 2,3 . The chief didn't bat an eyelid as he said . " I see some of us have not shaved this morning" . Squad dismissed .
