Obviously I'm much too woke to engage in casual, everyday sexism but 'Three irons on a shirt... never stopped me dreaming...".
Ah... now I'm mansplaining as well.

Richard Allen's series of Skinhead books. Popular reading for many teen lads in the early 1970s while sat on a bus to and from school.
Tim Roth's role in Made in Britain personifies the characters from these books.
Many people miss the real message so well worth a view.
Funnily enough a 'skin' of about my age lives in my town. Although he's simply bald now, I guess. He still wears all the kit.
The Skinhead books were definitely of a certain era. I'm amused that a last gasp attempt was made in the mid-1970s to make a tenuous link between skinheads and the then new kung fu craze:
I guess a 'SpacehopperSkins' book would have dented a few ego's, and put Gary Bushell onto a different career path

You were a hero if you could get 2 colours out at once on that bad boy!
From a post on OAMAAM remembering incidents during training.
Reading a thread yesterday, being placed on the flank was mentioned. Upon reading this post, I recalled an incident way back in time (early 1970s) involving a young marine whose surname was Dance. I feel sure many on this site will remember him. The occasion took place on the "playground" at CTCRM, the squad were dressed in No2 Blues and were at open order being inspected by a DL who appeared to be particularly enthusiastic.
(Let us use this nickname). Dancer was in either the centre or rear rank, and, by the time the enthusiastic DL arrived to inspect him, quite a number of individuals were already on the flank. Dancer had an uncanny ability to make any uniform he wore resemble a gilly suit, and you may not be surprised to hear that the DL took one look and shouted "dance, on the flank".
Quite naturally, those on the flank did exactly as they were bidden and, obeying the last order to dance on the flank, made like Riverdance or Chubby Checker in parade boots. I had to make an extremely speedy withdraw to my alternative position to do the obvious (bust a gut laughing). This sight I had never seen before or since.
