Yes I freely admit it, I had disobeyed a direct order and was on a charge. The OC was a nice chap and the CSM was fantastic but neither of them was ready for this; OC "Pte Ugly do you accept my award or wish to go in front of the CO?" Ugs "I dont know sir, what did you have in mind?" OC "Sargent Major get him out of here!" usual left right stuff. CSM "Right boy (barely stifling his giggles) get back in there and apologise then accept his award!" Ugs "Yes sir!" Result Â£15 pounds fine and nothing else as I had made the OC's day. Apparently no one had said it before! After disembarkation leave the CSM sent me to Recce to be shot of me!
