Try telling that to the MT / military police types policing convoys
Ok it was only the TA but we were driving to Germany for annual camp
They would rather one stayed in ones position, and fell alsleep.
I can absolutely vouch for a sure cure for insomnia
about 50mph in a landrover with gnarly tyres following the same tailights for hour after hour.
Me and the missus "raced" our two packets down through England ( from N Ireland ) and into Wales.
We succeeded in passing the whole regiment having started last and second last in the line up.
and stuck to the rules re speeds ( ahem )
Boy was the C. O. pissed, the Adj ( who was a regular officer
)did not help by getting them lost mind
There were three
Lt. Gault's in the one Battery, two of them being married to each other, tee hee
A wee bit confusing, when the phone rang and some asked can I speak to Lt Gault please???
Ah yes the good old days
Now God help me I know how my father felt when I ernestly assured him, that NO I was not going to crash, humph.
just the once
trying to ogle the girlfriends tits in a borrowed dress that was way too big.
Perhaps I should have told him that?
Anyway anyway we now got a 16 year old son
and so the cycle repeats
God help us
