This is a question In the Army Now - The joy of the Armed Forces

I've never been a soldier. I was an air cadet once, but that mostly involved sitting in a mouldy hut learning about aeroplane engines with the hint that one day we might go flying.

Yet, anyone who has spent time defending their nation, or at least drinking bromide-laced-tea for their nation, must have stories to tell. Tell them now.

Not one of my own...
But my CO in ATC told us a story regarding a camp he went on as a cadet.

There was this Warrent Officer, you know the type, a bloke for whom nothing is good enough. Well, my CO's flight get latrine duty, and no matter how hard you cleaned the bastard toilets this Warrent would scream and shout at you.

So, one day, this kid in my CO's flight spends a full day cleaning one toilet. The rest of the flight cover for him while he scrubs just one toilet to a state of 'brand spanking new'.

He then sprays chocolate sauce all over his hard work, smothering everything in this one abloution.

The next day came inspection. The Warrent strolls down the line of shitters, putting people on report one by one until he comes to our hero's bog.

Opening the door he screams, "What in God's name is this?"

The cadet calmly and smartly walks into the toilet, runs one finger down a wall and tastes it. He takes a moment to sample it's flavour before returning to attention and shouting, "Shit, sir!"

Well, the CO get dodgy about details there, but needless to say that kid was on Janker's for the remainder of camp!
