THE FOUNDERS OF THE LF WEB SITE THE LATE CAPT. JOE EASTWOOD BEM AND COLIN BOUTTY WERE BOTH FIERCELY ENTRENCHED IN THEIR INTENT AND ADAMANT IN THEIR BELIEF THAT THE LF WEB SITE SHOULD REMAIN AN INDEPENDENT ENTITY AND FREE FROM OUTSIDE INFLUENCE. IN FURTHERANCE OF THAT END ALL SUGGESTIONS THAT THE WEB SITE BE ALLIED TO OR INDEED INTEGRATED INTO THE FUSILIER ASSOCIATION OR ANY OTHER GROUPING WERE FIRMLY REJECTED. THE ETHOS OF INDEPENDENCE REMAINS THE SAME. :SMILIES (Emoticons)
While we are at it (bed inspection)
IP: 1.144.104.238


Anyone experience this, I did!

Bed inspection was about the dreariest duty. Boots and socks, blankets and the hold-hall with all its bits and pieces were put on display for inspection. NCOs usually the most bloody, they pranced around with the power to break their fall guy’s resistance to their stupidity. Bed layouts faulted for the smallest of things. It took ages to prepare it for the inspection. Their mess-up meant rushing around to reset it before the officer’s inspection. Keep cool and balls to the big, the short, and the small, the time may come to level things up.
Boots were placed with the bottoms up to show the number of studs and their condition. Blankets folded in certain way; knife fork and spoon in there allotted place, sewing kit was there with the button stick the all-important to the army was on also a part of the display. This button stick was the icon of the polishing army world, easily found amongst the other cleaning kit, the blasted thing shone brightly with the constant polishing of the buttons. For those that never had the joy of using one it was designed to fit over and around the buttons to protect the cloth of the coat from the over spill of the polish and black marks of the metal polish. His greatcoat had rows of these damn greedy buttons that in barrack time wallowed in blasted polish; the rest of the metal was mostly on the webbing to feed the ends through dozens of belt buckle. Another added misery was the blasted webbing had to be scrubbed, blancoed and the metal work polished.
Happy days.
William.
