A Snapshot of Service
in 'A' Company of the Argylls
Libyan Desert - 1958

Map of Libya

from the A&SH tray..........
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.

Proof that the desert is not all sand!

Just try sleeping on that!
