Whilst on exercise, early eighties, we were doing the old dawn stand to. the BSM was walking round kicking people to ensure they were awake and looking the right way. As he was walking round he saw that the chef, whilst lighting the No1 burner, had set fire to his tent. the BSM on seeing the middle of the hide on fire shouts "FIRE" seconds later shots were being fired all round the location. He now shouts "Cease fire", everyone stops only to start again 30 seconds later when he again shouts "FIRE"... it took about 10 minutes for the message to get around and people to stop shooting.
