Lemgo, Germany, field training with tanks, a squad of Jocks piled on top of a Centurian tank passing through a quiet German village. The tank tries to turn a tight corner in the village street. The gun swivels round and takes the side off somebody's bedroom. The Jocks leapt off that tank like flies departing a decaying bratwurst.
Imagine, thur beds wurnae even made! Diiiis-graceful!

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