from the A&SH tray..........
Stirling Castle esplanade, platoon on drill parade, many visitors watching from buses all around the esplanade. Drill corporal showing off, issues the command 'Squad, Shun!' Both sets of his false teeth spurt out onto the ground leaving an empty black cakehole. Drill squad and watching visitors disintegrate into fits of laughter.
Corporal stoops to retrieve his false teeth with his dignity in tatters.
