Limni Camp Cyprus, just before we went to sleep in our tents every night, the 'A' Company boys had a habit of shouting 'Baggy!' to annoy Cpl 'Baggy' Sharp. But the bold 'Baggy' would mount a silent, solitary night patrol and if he heard you, he was under that tent like a ferret and with a flick of the wrist and an expansion of the chest he tipped you out of bed before disappearing silently into the night. motto - don't get caught!

"Whit a shambles - even the guard in the background is oan the wrang step!"

"Haw, Jock, a hope that gun's no loadit - it's pointin straight at us!"
