Stirling Castle, Balaklava platoon practicing field craft around Nether Bailey. Everything pukka; dead quite; no voices; hand signals only. Thunder flashes go off. Young recruit jumps up and screams, 'Aaahhh! They got me boys! Carry-on without me!' Helpless laughter ensues.

Argyll brass bed plate This is the Argyll brass plate we placed on our beds during kit inspections.

Our Army number and name were stamped on the centre of it.

Although this example has seen a bit of service, it used to be continually polished with brasso until it was gleaming!
