I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Orderly Dog

Just about everyone here will have been orderly dog of some description. Inspired by the award of a week's ON due to an early posting on an other thread, I am sure that is where tales of the Real Air Force could be told.

I was Orderly Officer and less than 6 months in as an APO and in the middle of a lecture when the fire alarm went off. It was written in the orders that the OK attend and take charge until relieved.

I was duly despatched. The fire was a quarters fire in a remote quarter on the airfield at Hullavington. One of those 2/3 bed semis where the unoccupied half had caught fire. I hitched a lift with a fire truck and all of 19 was completely clueless (OK, no change there).

That was the easy bit. It was a long walk back 😕
