Dhekelia, Cyprus, break-in at the cookhouse. Tins of bully beef pinched. Some half-eaten chunks of bully beef left lying on the floor. Next morning the RSM assembles the Battalion.
'Who broke into the cookhouse last night?'
Nobody answers.
'You think you're fly, eh, but I've got your fingerprints on the bully beef!'

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!
