Stirling Castle, Balaklava platoon drill practice on the esplanade. The platoon Corporal, Jimmy Letham, facing the squad gives the command, 'Squad will move to the right in threes, right turn!' - and points to his right. Some Jocks turned to their left!
Utter chaos and hilarity - followed by much doubling round esplanade with rifles above head.

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