I remember a guy with the queens regt lad called "killer" Cox, he asked permission to grow a tash. Apparently if after 4 weeks you had a respectable growth you were allowed to keep it, change the photo on your ID card and all that. After about 30 days we were on parade with the regt and the RSM was inspecting the troops. He stood in front of killer for a while staring at him, by this time killer had what could best be described as a football match, 11 a side, after a while the RSM said to killer, did you shave this morning? Killer puffed up his chest and said ‘no sir, I have permission to grow a mo” How long have you been growing it asked the RSM, “about 4 weeks” said killer. Don’t be bloody stupid the RSM said, shave it off. Killer blustered back at him “Ive still got 2 days left sir” as though the thing was going to burst into full growth the very next night.
I had a tash since I was about 20, and when I got out grew a full set, loved it, but then went back to just the tash. My wife and kids had never seen me without it. I was in a local am dram production, and the night of the final rehearsal the director said to me, OK lose the tash by tomorrow. So I did, and everyone said it made me look years younger, so I never grew it back again !! vain eh

Haven't laughed so much for ages.
The missus called up the stairs to find out what was wrong (they don't understand.)
