Yep, old mate. . . I was National Service in the mid fifties and was a very smart Airman indeed. Beret shrunk to just right size, boots shining like mirrors, buttons gleaming and bl**dy proud of the service. Got to corporal too, which was pretty good for a National Service erk !
On a serious note. I lost several good friends, killed on National Service, so don’t let anyone run down the guys who gave two years service to the country. Some of them made the supreme sacrifice and I’ve never forgotten them !
