I left Belize in 92 and I can tell you that the blerk in charge of the book with all Swamp Rats from the start in it(Mr BBQ) at the time, was leathered the day after his GOZOMI, swamped his bed, slept in for MCCP and left the swamped book under his bedspace!!!!! Tw@t.

Rum and Coke in 10. Orange is for poofs. And it was a biggun.
Long time since i've heard about Swamp Rats, it was majorly banned near to the end of my tour, the Maj there was a total pr*ck, managed to get it in before he banned it, t-shirt seems to have shrunk in the wash, he sent a bloke home in disgrace on my tour for wearing the t-shirt, prat
