Lemgo, Germany, Saturday morning dental parade to local German dentist. Word went round that the dentist had a new gorgeous blonde assistant who held your head during treatment. A young Jock with nothing wrong with his teeth, thought he would skive off the Battalion parade, go dental sick and grab a look at this female beauty! But the dentist was craftier than him. He saw a chance to make money, teach the young Jock a lesson, and get one back on the British Army. He extracted a perfectly healthy tooth! - tumshie heid!

These trucks were perfect for commandeering the centre of the narrow mountain road when the melon trucks came toward us.

This manoeuvre 'encouraged' the driver of the melon truck to slow down. It was then a dawdle for each of us to fix bayonets and acquire a fat juicy melon as the truck squeezed-by.

The Platoon Commander, 2nd/Lt Jack Wilson can be seen, head and shoulders above everyone
