Lemgo, Germany, field training with tanks, a squad of Jocks piled on top of a Centurian tank passing through a quiet German village. The tank tries to turn a tight corner in the village street. The gun swivels round and takes the side off somebody's bedroom. The Jocks leapt off that tank like flies departing a decaying bratwurst.
Imagine, thur beds wurnae even made! Diiiis-graceful!

How about the bull in this barrack room, then?

Just look at that shine, and those lily-white towels all folded in regimental size, level, shape, height, thickness, colour, angle, aspect, attitude, inclination, orientation................

"Haw maw, wur ye no proud o' us?"

I never did see how this compared with what the RAF boys lived in!
