Lash's got talent

10th January 2013

Lash's got talent

It was cold, but the troops turned out in droves to see the talent in Lash and the EFI girls were out in force with drinks and biccies for the huge crowd who turned up for the show. They took turns to work outside on the small makeshift stall with cans and chocolate, then behind the counter, serving much needed warm up brews to the audience. 



The Entertainments and Customer Service Supervisor Jess, supported the show, with sound and vision assistance. 



There were two Danish competitors doing magic with one dressed as the glamorous assistant, two Ghurkhas dancing with their knives...scary stuff! A “drunken” bagpipe player who was playing on his back at one point, a comedian who did a great job of ribbing Greg James, the Radio One DJ, who is hosting his radio show from Afghanistan this week and made the trip over to Lash to be one of the judges.



There was a Lash choir, who were very festive, an American Marine singing Les Mis, a Canadian singing a bit of Country and Western, a Major singing 'Come fly with me' and various other great acts.



The boy band, Essence, sang 'I want it that way' by Backstreet boys and were crowned the winner. Essence consisted of three Royal Marines Commandos, dressed in what looked like PVC and very short shorts. They had their own entourage of security guards and a big crowd of groupies with one person trying to storm the stage, but was wrestled to the ground by the security guards. All part of the act by the way, not a security threat.



All in all, the event was a great success with huge shout outs to the NAAFI for their support and contributions.
