Long weight

A long weight is a fictional piece of equipment that a young soldier - or sprog is sent to collect from his or her SSM, CSM or BSM.

Clearly, these seekers of artefact get what they went for - a 'long wait.'

This prank was particularly common some years ago, along with luckless nigs being sent to find skyhooks and stripy paint.

Apparently to our naval brethren this is known as Bites or Easys.
