  • The ever Disappearing Military Moustache

    It has come to my attention of late that the wearing of moustaches (even amonst the female mebers) is on the decline.

    there was aday when you would enter a military pots and find some of the finest specimens

    Also it is all in deline and the art of posssesing and maintaining a military moustache is a dying art form

    has any body else noticed this trait?

    I know of only 4 PDF lads in Collins Bks Cork who have a proper well maintained Military issue moustasche. No others as far as I know. All these people have been in over 20 years!!!
    I probably am wrong, sorry about that!!!

    Please PM me to correct me.

    But, not if I state an opinion, only if I state something as truth!!!

    I have bad opinions but I stick by them!!!

        I've seen pictures in an Cosantóir of the "Wing Commander 'tache" he has !!!

                Sadly, most military taches tend to look like "porn actor/S.American bandit" types. Also, it seemed to me that some corporals, admin, one or two, for the use of, wore traffic-warden, jobsworth-style 'taches.Officious, bumptious gits....proper taches are rare.

                  You obviously havent been down to the TVMS in the Curragh recently.
                  it seems like you have to have a tache to be an instructor

                    My plans to grow a moustache in the past have been vetoed.....so I just settle for sideburns, 70s style.

                          ahhh thats cute barry, we all know the only way you'd get a tache is after drinking chocolate milk.

                          I know theres nothing cooler than the falklands look! Where everyone has a tache and a yellowish norgie!

                            I have. And I can only think of ONE instructor down there who has a 'tache - and at that,
                            he's a relatively new arrival to the School !!!
