I TOPPED THE LESSON By Rod Morrison, RMC Duntroon
We were posted to 10 IRC Military Training Wing Training Support platoon: 1988 Sub 1 Cpl CSE RMC Duntroon. While on the piss at the Private Bin, I (ex 2/4 RAR at the time) and ET (Etienne Ryckmans ex 5/7 RAR) made a bet who could shag the female staff members supporting the CSE. Our first challenge was a RAAOC Sgt about 10 years our senior. She happened to be at the nightclub that night. I walked up to her and asked her if she wanted a fuck. She looked at me with a grin and said, “Let’s go.”
The next morning we woke at her house a little late for roll call on the parade ground. We pulled up in front of the entire course and staff and I marched on parade with a laugh from the students. Another male sergeant, who had been trying to pants her didn’t look too happy. That day she took our map-reading lesson and I had to show her how to make a mud map for an O group so she in turn could give us a lesson. The students were a mix of corps. Of course I topped the lesson.
The enemy never watches until you make a mistake.
