I imagine most units still employ a 'voluntary contributions' book somewhere in their nearest office. When the British Army was mainly spread out across NI and Germany very few people went home at weekends, and these books served a very good purpose. There was always someone's name appearing in a military publication (1 crate) or photo (4 crates), and you could bet your life after a piss-up, the usual suspects would phone in late and end up 'contributing' to the next bash. Of course, these days it tends to be only Company/Regt functions where we are able to prize the young 'uns away from their xboxes and playstations. Oh and Xmas carnage day of course. And we have seen a few classics over the years. My favourites being among the following: Line Book entries: "What time's the News at Ten on tonight?" Following the news of a little girl getting electrocuted using the hand-dryer in McDonalds, someone was heard to say "It was probably her own fault for using an electrical appliance with wet hands" Beer Book entries: The 'Crying Game' entry - I didn't know she was a bloke lads, honest! ...lads? The 'Grand Slam' entry - late for work and after brief search, being eventually discovered in the showers, still fully-clothed and fast alseep in a pool of chunder and ...well you know the rest. What were your most memorable line book / beer book entries?
