I bumped into an ol' mucker of mine in Elsmere Port the other day. Now i cant remember his mane but dhouted his last 2. "Oi Fourteen" its me Twentynine haven't seen you for years!" And so we went on catching up on whats been going on, and we must've sounded like a pair of idiots talking in numbers, hows fiftyfive? did you hear about thirty six? and so it went on. Now I was in a Welsh Battalion all Jones,Williams,Evans and Roberts as you could imagine, Now my question is do English Battalions use numbers in such a manner? Only time i knew about it was when i was in basic with an few English blokes and there was a Jones from the PWRR and he was given his last 2 to be known by, however the SGT was an RRW man and as he said "I LIKE NUMBERS". P.S. Numbers have been changed to protect identities!
