A Snapshot of Service

Tobruk Barracks - 1958

Stirling Castle, Balaklava platoon drill practice on the esplanade. The platoon Corporal, Jimmy Letham, facing the squad gives the command, 'Squad will move to the right in threes, right turn!' - and points to his right. Some Jocks turned to their left!
Utter chaos and hilarity - followed by much doubling round esplanade with rifles above head.

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!
