The circus arrived in Herford one lazy summers evening so everybody went to see the animals, acrobats, clowns etc. This was an old fashioned type of circus and included a Boxing Ring with an old fashioned rather fat looking ex German heavyweight boxing champion. "Can anybody last three rounds with this man for a DM 100 prize". A hand was raised in the audience and in a soft Irish tone came the reply "I`m your man. Within a few seconds the fat German lay prostrate and so Paddy claimed his prize. After a while spent recovering, the challenge was asked again. This time a different hand was raised from the audience and in a rough English voice said "I am your man. With the first punch, again the fat German was left prostrate. You see, these two challengers from 7 Sig Regt were none other than the Irish Light heavyweight amateur boxing champion (also the Irish Decathlon champion) and the German Heavyweight amateur boxing champion (his mother was German). Not a bad nights work for these two fellas, so they followed the circus to Bielefeld and repeated their feats. They then followed the circus to other locations (he couldn`t refuse their challenges because the crowd would have lynched him), until the circus manager finally told them to Fcuck off (in German of course). Good memories eh!
