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!

Sadly, 'Big Balla' McIntyre died at a very young age. He was a very popular guy with a devilish sense of Highland humour which kept us all laughing!

He had some of the most amusing sayings, e.g. "Were you on the lorry when you fell off?", and "You go first and I'll go before you!"
