I " got some in"
on 19 September 2013
I served in the army, as a regular, '56-'59 along side N.S. lads.. I do not remember anyone having a fall out or serious argument even. Book gives a good impression of what life was like in those days , plenty of laughs were had because even after having been shouted and yelled at, and made to feel a complete pillock all day, though there were jobs to do in the evening, no one took any of the drill pigs seriously. We all knew we would be posted after 6 weeks, and as was written behind one of the toilet doors " don't worry, even gobsh*tes pass out " all perfectly true. I can understand some lads who had never been anywhere or done anything wondering what the hell at hit them.
A good read and it certainly brought back some memories
