Limni Camp Cyprus, a pile of Jocks dressed in the kilt in the back of an open 3 ton truck were on their way back from Famagusta Leave Camp.
Passing through a Greek village, a group of young lassies run out to shout and laugh at them. One young Jock jumps up and lifts up the front of his kilt - very, very embarrassed young girls!
