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.

Ooh Just Remembered Another Two!
RAF Swinderby 1988 ... absolutely bonkers rock ape (RAF Regiment) corporal named Cpl Tony Levy. Referred to everyone as "ladies" and instructions would go something like :

TL : Ladies ...
Us : Yes Corporal!
TL : On the word of command ...
Us : Shit!
TL : You will ...
Us : Leap !
TL : On the back of the four tonner with the speed of a thousand gazelle ... SHIT!

Top bloke.

Time there only spoiled by ballsing up royally but hey that's life. Ended up in the army (commissioned!) and from there Royal Marines.

At Keogh Barracks (army medical school) had an instructor called (no word of a lie - top name as well) Cpl Wolf Partenheimer.

Favourite quote (on our arrival) was:

"there you go lads a platoon of females who haven't been off camp in 12 weeks. Remember - d*cks in one hand, penicillin in the other!" (and with a completely straight face!).

Second post - do I get a smaller "pop" for it?
