Hahaha, you’ve got to laugh. A few days before our pass off parade 1 of the corporals had a can of cpl (clear protective lacquer) he probly paid 2/3 quid from Halfords for it, he charged the whole platoon £5 each to spray over the toe caps we’d spent months bulling up then it all faded and melted on the day as it was red hot then we all got a bollockingWe had to pay to have our boot sbeeswaxed..... the OC said 'Gosh... look at those boots. Has he beeswaxed them?'
'Looks like it Sir', said the man who'd done it. 'Not done a very good job of it either.'
And that was me forty quid down and a whole day's beasting.
