What memories of factory fresh troop OC's then... One that springs to mind for me was my troop OC at 22 sigs, knicknamed "KATO"... never got on with him, exasperated by the fact I used to be switch bitch on exercises, with him in Noddys Castle next door, and the bloody intercom forever beeping with one stupid request after another. Remember during Op Granby, our wagon being attached to his node for a while... Noddy's Castle have dug their trench very close to some vehicle tracks... The rains start ( ah yes, the desert... lots of sun!!!) .. Stand to is called... KATO and others from NC go to their trench, to find it full of water, some enterprising person had been busy with a shovel diverting all the culverts formed by the vehicle tracks into NC's trench. KATO perched on the side of the trench during stand-to holding rifle, looking like a garden gnome around a pond!
