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.

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
