Living with 7 other squadies
In the back of an APC for 5 months was the dirtiest, grimiest experience I think I will ever experience. The location was the first gulf war in 1990/91 (or the Wests first attempt to keep fuel prices low) we deployed into the Saudi desert on Xmas eve 90 and lived out the back of an APC until the beginning of May 91 visiting Iraq and finishing up in Kuwait. Living and working so close to each other you have to lower standards such as.

No change/laundry of kit - once dirty it stayed dirty.

Commander and driver at the front- The rest of us lived like sardines in the back, farting smoking, eating. Smells soon accumulated.

Cold showers - no biggy this, but the desert isnt always warm, especially at night.

Section 2i/c determined to wear the same union jack boxer shorts for the whole tour - gopping minging bastard especially at the end when instead of a sacrificial burning, he took them back to the UK!!!

Pissing, shiting and wanking in the desert - not fun, but the sand sure is absorbent.

I was once on a suspiciously empty flight from West Africa to France
We departed from Dakar, landed again a very short time afterwards with no warning and about 200 stinking and evil looking men clambered on board. No hand luggage, nothing but the filthy civvy clothes they had on.
I suspect French Foreign Legion. I have no idea where they'd been but I'm fairly sure they hadn't encountered any water other than for drinking in weeks and that they'd been up to no good.
I'll never be able to erase the memory of how bad those people stank, and I work with pigs and shit.

I clicked.
It's not that I like it, but it deserves to be on the front page.

*emotes*
20 days sub-surface OP in Norway. Riven with ticks, first stab at sunlight,we buddy up and de-louse each other. Fester turns to me with an apologetic look, and bends over to show me the pea-sized tick he needs removing from his tea-towel holder.

hmmm, By contrast, 80-man days of shit in a plastic bag didn't seem so bad...
