    There were in fact 2 parts to the operation:

    The Clean Up and Control side was known as Op PENINSULA (Yes without the R)

    The culling was known as Op SLUBBER (Fcuking awful name if you ask me)

    one of the more onerous tasks I ever got invoved in on behalf of Her Maj'

    Each to their own I suppose, but providing security for mammoth pyres of burning beef and gigantic pits of mutton was not the highlight of my service.

    No, a rather sh**y time was had by all I recall. Didn't get any of the allowances we were promised. Work of an objectionable nature.
