  1. Recently, I met up with some old Vets at the Commonwealth War grave at Monte Cassino Italy and heard this excellent story;

    When one of the Vet's was 20 (about 1944) he was practicing his Bren Gun drills in preparation for the Anzio landings.  During a firing, he messed up on his stoppage drills and the Sgt Maj promptly gave him a good kick in the ribs with his hobnails.  Well, the Sgt Maj got killed on the landings and 60 years later, the Bren Gunner went to pay his respects to his fallen comrades.  On seeing the Sgt Maj's grave, he promptly went up to it and kicked it, followed by the words "I've waited years to do that you Bastar*, I had a bruise for two weeks!!!
