I remember on our OP course during the night shoots taking it in turns to stand in front of the TIs and do a pee! Oh what larks Pip!
I also remember on exercise watching two Gurkhas (through our TI kit )watching some civilians having a shag, through their II kit! As the lovers reached pre-climactic frenzy, gurkha no 1 let off a TF whilst Gurkha no2 pressed his face to the windscreen and let out an unearthly shriek!

I was in one of the class rooms and as they were running towards us they would disappear from view below the window and then re appear a few seconds later we were in bits for ages.
