Two Jocks from 'A' Company, hitchhiking their way home from Cyprus to Scotland. They arrive starving in Pisa, Italy, at 3 o'clock in the morning and order spaghetti. One Jock finds it difficult to eat. A big buxom, well-endowed waitress with a low neckline puts her arms round him from behind to show him how. The spaghetti went everywhere, his face went scarlet, the locals went into fits and the waitress didn't bat an eyelid.

Well, what would you expect, with a powerful anchor man like 6ft 12in, CQMS Tony Harris?

All this strength from hard-tack and bromide - good job they didn't have a random drugs test!
