I say Eric
To whom were you directing that dads army remark?
I would hope it was our cousins across the Atlantic
for there somewhat lax security.
though once upon a time
In our wee camp in Coleraine
Where we paraded in full uniform about 25m from two roads with only a chainlink fence to hide us from recognition
Yet were absolutely prohibited from travelling in Uniform?
bye the bye
One Sunday afternoon in the Mess, our OC Sam see a strange vehicle being waved into the camp without being searched
And this being a time of heightened security
Sam opens the window and gulders down
"Gunner Smith, who was that"?
TO which Gunner Smith replies
" I dont know Sir, but he was in earlier"
This is the exact same Gunner Smith who I heard giving out my home phone number , when I was standing right beside him.
odd, I thought, I wonder what that was about?
A few moments later the phone rings again and Gunner Smith says "hold on Sir, I will let you speak to him"
and hands the phone to me
Our PSAO ( perm staff advisory officer)
can hardly speak for laughing, were you there all the time?
Yes says I why?
"Because I phoned your house and your wife said you were down the Camp"
says the PASO and added
the cheeky so & so
"And there I thought you were away getting a bit of strange and only using the camp as an excuse"
Now do you want to know about the 9mm pistol that was mistakenly signed out to us by the regulars
another time perhaps
