Lemgo, Germany, Saturday morning dental parade to local German dentist. Word went round that the dentist had a new gorgeous blonde assistant who held your head during treatment. A young Jock with nothing wrong with his teeth, thought he would skive off the Battalion parade, go dental sick and grab a look at this female beauty! But the dentist was craftier than him. He saw a chance to make money, teach the young Jock a lesson, and get one back on the British Army. He extracted a perfectly healthy tooth! - tumshie heid!

The boys just came out of the block, walked about 50 yards and straight through the perimeter gate to the beach - marvellous.
