Collars with studs were particularly uncomfortable when worn on Guard, trying to have a kip in the Guardroom when not on Stag was extremely painful. <img src= What a Face

The studs in the picture look a bit posh.
We were issued with the hinged one, that was designed to dig into your Adam's apple and a rigid plastic one that held the collar on at the back.
Bloody awful things !

Talking about collar studs. The only ones I knew about were the Studs who had to go into great detail in telling you what great studs they were on a 48 hr pass to Amsterdam. Rolling Eyes

You lot obviously never saw the inside of the Queens Own Highlanders or Royal Scots guardroom. There were some very genuine nutters in there including from time to time members of the "Blue Hackle club" who gathered at lunchtimes to steal and drink methanol alcohol. Joined by the long term "guest" who caught imaginary butterflies with his imaginary butterfly net. He must have been far beyond normal demob age but was being looked after by the regiment. I bet that wouldn't happen today.

When we shared Assaye Bks, Nienburg, with 45 Fd Park Sqn RE there used to be a bemedalled old Sapper, who had the nickname of "Pop". Pop used to haunt the NAAFI and always seemed to be drunk. He used to drive us young 'uns mad because he would put "A Summer Place" on the juke box, stand there while it played, then put it on again-and again ! We would often see Pop sitting alone, with two glasses of beer on the table, talking to himself,.The Sappers told us that he was talking to his mate, who he'd watched being tortured to death by the Japs.
Pop was way past demob age but the RE kept him in the army anyway. You're right, steve, you wouldn't see that happen nowadays.
