Default Ready Teddy Go

There was one pair of tatty teddies in the drill shed and they were usually given out as the pair. As I say this would be in the very first few drill sessions - when we Nods would lead on the wrong foot, swing the same arm and leg together etc. The idea was to get the basics sorted before they trusted you with carrying a rifle onto their beloved drill square. As you progressed so did the punishment for errors - becoming much more basic (and often brutal) -- Ray
