| Golf course camp,Port Said.
A memory I shall never forget.
I was on stand by platoon,The platoon seargeant was a Sgt D a real bast---.
Sgt D was well known to turning out
the platoon at any time especially in the middle of the night.|
This particular night he turned us out at 4 am, The platoon turned out in
record time Sgt D the bast---- inspected us----one man missing, Where is Guardsman P?screamed Sgt D the bast--
He is coming,said someone.
Sgt D the bast---blue his top,
Guardsman P he yelled at the platoon tent,get out here right now,
GuardsmanP came out of the tent on the double and formed up in line.
THe whole platoon went into hysterics
Sgt D the bast--- had a fit. Guardsman P was standing to attention looking straight ahead,He had his boots on , his webb belt,ammo pouches,steel
helmet,holding his rifle,otherwise stark naked.
Sgt D the bast---almost had a heart attack cpl B ,he yelled Put this man in the guardroom, on the double.
CPL B doubled off with Guardsman P to the guardroom.
Company Orders the next day,Cpl B
gave the evidence,coud"t help smiling.
Major Ph looked at Guardsman P and said,P----- one day you will credit the
institution you will end up in. Dissmissed.
Those were the days.
