          Shirts collar detached.(and the poxy almost unusable issue stud to attach the collar).
          Serge no 2 uniforms.
          Microscopic rubber ear plugs (still have them in my shooting box).
          As well as everything that already been mentioned, in particular the mention of laminated 1250s and the detachable slip from leave passes made me feel my age. Bummer.

            Waiting for the brown detached slip to come back from PSF knowing your leave was legit. But going on leave irrespective of any chit in your back pocket.

            Putting a leave pass in to reclaim food charges but staying on camp and using mess.

            Buying rail warrants from other hard up singles.

            Going to PSF on Friday morning for a warrant to use for the weekend.

                  A digression...

                  The Christmas 'Round Robin' Hercules calling by your base and picking up/kicking off

                  Following a divorce driven particularly skint spell, I once caught this back to Lyneham from Leuchars. There was only one other passenger - a bloke called Terry Waite.
