Borg Leopold, Belgian border, 'A' Company were told by the CQMS that their chocolate ration would be swapped for eggs. Days passed and nae eggs arrived!
Midnight raid by Jocks on chocolate ration! Tins of chocolate shared-out and buried everywhere in our tents.
Not a word was said! No names! No pack drill! No charges!
