I didn't know they had to be pressed :roll: - just written a note myself so I don't forget!

My ammo boots need some serious cobbling, so I'll have to change out of them after inspection!

Oh yes... trousers pressed with a nice sharp crease down the front and back. NO TRAMLINES!

(Mine should be already... :) )

I want to see my face in those boots! (You won't in mine as I'm not going to be crawling through the undergrowth in my best boots... heh)

Hmm, do I need brown paper or something to stop wool trews going shiny when I iron them?

not if you have an iron that can be set to "wool"

If you don't then you'll need to use a tea towel or something similar.

Whatever the case don't ruin your trousers for this... :)

A great day today. Many thanks to all who took part, you looked the dogs danglies.

To all the Brits, great to play alongside with you. We really gelled as a group and I think the day will have proved very useful indeed.

And finally thanks to F&O for being excellent hosts as usual!

Don't forget Operation Varsity on the 30th March!

Cheers to Gadge, Yith (& Major) - thank you for the time and effort you put in preparation and execution of the day.
A very enjoyable Sunday - plenty of giggles and piss-takes along with the serious stuff, so a great mix.
As always, the chatting is just as important as the grafting!

Gadge got to shave his moustache off at the end of the day - not that you could see it, I had to fill it in with charcoal to make it visible :roll: :rofl:

And the pay books are minty Evo - don't expect me to remember my army number though, I can't even remember my house number!

Thanks all for an enjoyable day :)

Have had a quick look at the photos that I took today (322) and there are some nice ones in there. Will get them sorted and online sometime during the week depending on work.
