Do you need a ironing board as well as a steam iron
You can buy one at the naafi, but they aren't provided
Ok thanks mate
The ironing boards in the naafi aren't the best, but depends if you *text deleted* take one all the way on the trains. I'd suggest getting a few covers or a special a pad for your ironing board to make ironing easier & so the pattern of the metal frame does't come through
Ironing boards? Luxury! A blanket on a table top is an adequate 'ironing board' if nothing else is available. I did my RT elsewhere in the 1970s but none of my Recruit Platoon used ironing boards.
@Caversham was it the same in your day?
You used tables??
Cadet dit inbound...
National Parade, 350 cadets, TV crews, Rifles, Chief of the Air Staff, RAF Cranwell..
Not enough ironing boards for 30 let alone 350. No tables. No foot lockers..
The concrete floor held up alot better than the wooden floor.
