Stirling Castle esplanade, platoon on drill parade, many visitors watching from buses all around the esplanade. Drill corporal showing off, issues the command 'Squad, Shun!' Both sets of his false teeth spurt out onto the ground leaving an empty black cakehole. Drill squad and watching visitors disintegrate into fits of laughter.
Corporal stoops to retrieve his false teeth with his dignity in tatters.

If you recognise anyone in the photographs, or would like to submit any material to the web site, please send details.

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