Anyone else watching?

BIL is an ex-marine and he's told me some of the stuff they got up to wink

Got this recording to watch later.

Should be good

TessTackle Mon 14-Jul-14 21:17:24

I'm watching, I didn't know they had to sleep in the nuddy!

ThatBloodyWoman Mon 14-Jul-14 21:17:31

What channel?

JazzAnnNonMouse Mon 14-Jul-14 21:17:36

I am - who knew 'going commando' is actually a thing?!
Tbh it all looks a bit brainwashy and freaky to me - looks like the mormans programme, curry and controlly

BIL says you can always tell which bloke is a Marine - he's either naked or wearing a dress!

The tales of Naked Bar are epic grin

I should watch as DBIL is a RMC. I'm watching John Bishop at the moment though

FrankelandFilly Mon 14-Jul-14 21:21:14

Awwww bless them, they're all a bit rubbish at this!

TessTackle Mon 14-Jul-14 21:21:33

"Y'alright corporal" grin

FrankelandFilly Mon 14-Jul-14 21:22:38

The ironing is a military thing, DH is in the RAF and he's much better at it than I am grin

JazzAnnNonMouse Mon 14-Jul-14 21:22:59

How to shower?!

JazzAnnNonMouse Mon 14-Jul-14 21:23:53

My grandad is good at ironing!

FrankelandFilly Mon 14-Jul-14 21:24:28

Yup, like the Corporal said, if you can't look after your own personal hygiene then how are you going to look after a weapon and your fellow servicemen?

STOPwiththehahaheheloling Mon 14-Jul-14 21:24:53

Ahhh! So thats where 'going commando' comes from! grin

"Tits and arse" hmm

Middleagedmotheroftwo Mon 14-Jul-14 21:24:59

DH was a Bootneck. He's sitting next to me giggling.

STOPwiththehahaheheloling Mon 14-Jul-14 21:27:13

What is a bootneck?

TessTackle Mon 14-Jul-14 21:28:13

I love the beret <swoon>

Middleagedmotheroftwo Mon 14-Jul-14 21:28:26

A Royal Marine. No idea why

FrankelandFilly Mon 14-Jul-14 21:28:32

"Bootneck" is Slang for a Marine

STOPwiththehahaheheloling Mon 14-Jul-14 21:28:53

how many fucking weetabix? shock

Middleagedmotheroftwo Mon 14-Jul-14 21:29:15

Green beret for Royal Marines. You're thinking of paratroopers.

JazzAnnNonMouse Mon 14-Jul-14 21:29:19

I don't get it confused
Here have a job, we treat you like shit, you won't be able to see anyone you love for a long time, you might get really injured, high chance of death.

ThatBloodyWoman Mon 14-Jul-14 21:29:23

I've put it to record on +1.

STOPwiththehahaheheloling Mon 14-Jul-14 21:29:52

Oh- never heard of bootneck. Thanks.
