“When I was in military college in the distant past [Dead on Time:
Queen] was our wake-up song. We had the duration of that song to get
up, shave, make our beds, dress and stand for inspection.”

15181 Ron Stewart (Entered RRMC 1981 – graduated from RMC 2006)

    Don’t know if this will reach you, but I’ll give it a try. Also didn’t know there were any other Ron Stewarts that graduated from RMC. I graduated with the class of 66, forty years before you. Too bad your college number didn’t end in 40, but I guess that would be too much of a coincidence

    Now there is a worthy project… listing all of the recruit “wake-up / PANIC” songs. At Royal Roads in 1977 1 Squadron Cartier Flight (the foremost undisputed Cartier keen machine) – awoke to “Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac – a great song with fitting lyrics for those, and these, times!

    RON (#15181) – Just noticed… am I missing something… the signature says “Entered RRMC 1981 – Graduated from RMC 2006” – the first 22x Super Junior?

    A worthy project indeed, David. Tango Flight (7 Sqn) started each morning of Recruit Term in 1993 with “Happiness in Slavery”, by Nine Inch Nails. First verse? “Don’t Open your Eyes, You Won’t Like What you See”.

    RRMC 1985 – Cartier Flight – wake up song – “Dead on Time” (still a classic), went to sleep to Corey (Sunglasses in the Dark) Hart – “Never Surrender”. Still get weepy when I hear these tunes. Who could forget the Metallica like speakers each flight rented for recruit term.
