That kit layout is a shambles.

The NCOs we had in training would have slung that lot out of the window !

Looks like the South Staffs regt to me.

I agree, that webbing says the picture was taken during or after WW1.

(We were issued with brown plimsolls and told to blacken them. I wonder what colour those white ones started off as ?). Suspect

"A jelly donut, Private Pile ?" (That would be jam doughnut in our language, ((or a "Berliner", auf Deutsch)), by the way).


Ach so! Always wondered what Pres. Kennedy meant when he said "Ich bin ein Berliner............" Understand it's fizzy drink, too. Very confusing this Kraut speak. One of our lot got a meat pie when he asked for "...... A pint of bitter".

Back to tele stuff....... "Young Soldiers" as a slight deviation..... Always was irritated by an NCO who frequently dropped "OK ?" or "Alright ?" into his spiel whether it be on a lecture or a bollocking. It seemed like he was lost for words, ready for a breather, and expected a subservient grunt from whoever he was addressing. Can't ever remember it was included as SOP on cadre courses. Hope you lot weren't guilty !

There was a similar programme, a week or so ago.

There was this Meathead of a Drill Pig yelling at some infantry Nigs . . "Show me your War Face !"

They should've just sat the kids down and shown them "Full Metal Jacket", at least the drill pig in that was funny. ("I didn't know they could stack shit that high !").

Beats me why they wear those silly Boy Scout hats.

'Gunny' or correctly termed Gunner Sgt in the USMC is the same as a Sgt 1st Class in the US Army, the nearest equivelant to us is CSM - he carried out the same functions as our CSMs and was not neccessarily a drill pig. When I was based in Yuma we - the Brit WOs and SNCOs, used to use the Staff NCOs Club at the Marine Corps Air Station rather than the NCOs Club at the US Army Proving Grounds where we worked, as it was not unlike a WOs and Sgts Mess with similar traditions and standards enforced mainly by an old (compared to us) but highly respectd 'Gunny' who was a great character.
