Wombling - The noble art of 'Litter Picking'.

Areas - Comes the favourite cry of the RSM or Provo Sgt whose spidey sense has started to tingle at the mere presence of a discarded fag butt at 300 paces.

This is followed by [enter amount] sullen and disgruntled soldiers wandering disconsolately round the Company/Battalion areas wombling up litter until said area is more pristine than the Garden of Eden.
