Navs

Any Navs here who went through ANS at Cranditz in 1996 who had a Cse tee shirt printed with:

Choose life.
Choose a job.
Choose a career.
Choose a family,
Choose a ******* big television
Choose washing machines, cars,
Compact disc players, and electrical tin openers.
Choose good health, low cholesterol
And dental insurance.
Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments.
Choose a starter home.
Choose your friends.
Choose leisure wear and matching luggage.
Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase
In a range of ******* fabrics.
Choose DIY and wondering who you
Are on a Sunday morning.
Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing
Sprit-crushing game shows
Stuffing ******* junk food into your mouth.
Choose rotting away at the end of it all,
Pishing you last in a miserable home
Nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish,
******-up brats
You have spawned to replace yourself.
Choose your future.

Choose Nav!

I remember the t-shirt as I was instructing there around that time.

I'm guessing on 437 or 438 Cse. We took them to Valkenburg (and thence Amsterdam) IIRC.

Blimey, what a depressing tee shirt, glad I wasn't on that course. Anyway when I went through ANS (Gaydon and Strad) officers didn't wear tee shirts!

The timing would suggest that the course enjoyed "Trainspotting"

I would imagine that JOs would rather resent being referred to as cadets!
