Ode to a Base Plate ©

Sgt Hunter

One night while out live firing
I heard an awful shout
"My barrel's bust the base plate
Oh everyone, look out! "

We knew not how it happened
'Til later on that night,
But at the time of firing
Jack was not alright.

We took it into Tiffy,
He said "This ain't so good,
I'll have to BLR it,
Like all good armourer's should."

Callsign 8 was angry,
And so was Callsign Q,
But Tiffy soon had fixed it,
And so ended the to-do.

It was really all a mystery,
We all had quite a fright.
But Sunray 3-inch Mortars,
Just asked the time of flight.

But now the happy ending
The base plate is replaced,
The whole platoon is happy
And the music has been faced.

(Jack's still alright).
