Not much longer to wait out for the Nigeria episodes! Some of us are still mourning the death of Elvis.

Hello again!

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 20:54:25

Geography is another subject Molly failed at GCSE!

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 20:54:29

Yay! Preston, that's me! I'm about 4 miles from Leyland where Katie is from.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 20:55:01

I quite like the scottish soldier.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 20:55:48

Oh yes you will regret it if you leave now Molly. You don't know what's ahead of you...or who!

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 20:56:54

Suddenly, Molly is really nervous. She is out of her comfort zone.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 20:57:49

I really like this speech from Molly. The real girl is revealed.

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 20:58:54

She really speaks from the heart.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:00:46

We can see the medic in her emerging.

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 21:01:25

Dressing for the interview, she still looks tarty. Thank goodness Katie is around to lend her something.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:01:54

The officer is Lucy Briers. I always remember her as Mary Bennet in that version of P&P.

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 21:02:14

The interviewer does not look as if she is interested in her appearance much!

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:03:23

Will she make the grade? I think she might.

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 21:04:37

Sad that Molly's parents automatically assume she is pregnant when she wants to talk to them privately.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:04:50

They assume she's pregnant. I've got to admit that joining the army wouldn't be most people's reaction.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:06:01

Memories of the bus ride into Bastion here. Both as daunting as each other.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:06:43

That's a tempting picture ...Sir!

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 21:06:54

I wish I could place the officer behind the desk - I know his face too.

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 21:07:18

Ooooh stand by your beds. Corporal Geddings is here.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:07:59

Here he is Corporal Geddings!

Molly is pushing her luck already.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:08:55

I find this speech quite funny.

Rhubarb01 Tue 22-May-18 21:10:15

I think he's a real sergeant.

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 21:10:25

eejit - are you with us?

Ilovelblue Tue 22-May-18 21:11:09

I don't think I could have stood all the bullying. I would not have made a good army recruit.
